There are many reasons for considering Acupuncture. Some people prefer to take a holistic approach to their health, while others feel they have exhausted the help available from the NHS and are looking for alternative support. Often, starting a course of acupuncture follows a period of feeling overwhelmed, distressed, exhausted or even anger at the lack of explanation for their symptoms.
One of the most valuable aspects of having acupuncture is the opportunity to talk about your symptoms, your whole health and your journey. You become attuned to your body and understand when things you thought were normal are not. This gives you awareness and insight into your body so you can treat it with the care it deserves.
I am a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Acupuncturist who is licensed to give acupuncture in Bristol and South Gloucestershire (see locations here). I have additional qualifications in fertility and pregnancy acupuncture and actively take part in regular CPD to keep my knowledge up to date in both the western medicine options available and TCM techniques. I have a number of contacts with Western Medicine Consultants who I will refer you to privately if I feel it would benefit you.

If this is you and you would like to get started, please contact me to book an appointment. Please note that I value my time with my clients so I only take on new cases when I have space to really help you.
It is really important to be aware that a course of Acupuncture is a gentle approach to help your body get back into balance. I believe that every body wants to be in optimal health but stress, diet and lifestyle factors can impact this, causing aches, pains and hormones to fall out of balance. It depends on your health and would be discussed with you as part of your initial consultation, but generally, a course of acupuncture begins weekly for the first 5-12 weeks. Once we have seen positive changes in your symptoms, treatment frequency may be reduced.
