Acupuncture Clinics in London

acupuncture IN LONDON

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture works to help maintain our body’s equilibrium. Acupuncture involves the use of very fine needles on specific points of the body to regulate the flow of ‘qi’ (sometimes translated as energy) in the body. For a variety of reasons the ‘qi; can become unbalanced, which can result in symptoms such as pain and illness. Traditional acupuncture can be an effective therapy to restore balance and promote physical and emotional harmony.

Treatment is aimed at the root of the condition as well as the symptoms. This approach helps to both resolve the problem and enhance feelings of well-being. You may notice other niggling conditions also resolve as your health improves.

Acupuncture originated in China and is common in far eastern cultures, where it still features in mainstream health care and acupuncture is now widely accepted and used all over the world – and in the UK more and more people are finding out what acupuncture can do for them.

 

Why Acupuncture in London?

Many people come for acupuncture for help with specific symptoms or to relieve specific pains such as osteoarthritis of the knee.
Some use acupuncture because they feel generally unwell, but have no obvious diagnosis, others choose acupuncture simply to enhance well being.
Because acupuncture aims to treat the whole person it can be effective for a wide range of conditions.

Acupuncture for children in London

Acupuncture is also suitable for children and in my practice children are frequently treated, they do not necessarily need to have needles as there are other ways of treating children without the use of needles.

In 2009 the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) recommended that acupuncture be made available on the NHS as a cost effective short term treatment for the management of early persistent non-specific lower back pain.

Herbs: these are used either as a stand-alone therapy or in conjunction with acupuncture. They are prescribed using powders or granules in a pre-prepared form so no cooking required…

Gynaecology acupuncture

Yes, the fibroids have improved considerably since Neesha’s treatment. The flow is more manageable and I find that I am not so anxious in the lead up to my periods with very little PMS. I have seen a significant improvement since about January until now (May).

Tension Headaches

I was suffering from headaches every day for quite a while and the doctors had said there was nothing they could do as they were tension headaches. I had severe tension in my neck & shoulders that was there continuously and spread to my head at some point every day. I saw Neesha and over the course of a couple of months of seeing her every week to 2 weeks there was a massive improvement. The level of tension decreased and the frequency of headaches had gone down to about twice a week and so I was taking a LOT less painkillers which I had been taking every day previously. She also showed me stretches to help which I had not been shown previously by sports masseurs/doctors, which I found to be quite effective.

Cosmetic acupuncture

The treatment was brilliant as I feel and look much better, my boyfriend noticed after the second session, the lines under my eyes are hardly visible now. And the bags which I thought would never go, are hardly there. Plus the treatment made me feel much better in myself. I feel so relieved that there is something I can do to help with the aging process, that doesn’t involve surgery. Neesha is also lovely and put me at ease.

Ann is one of the most experienced experienced acupuncture practitioners in London, who has been in practice for more than 20 years. She uses acupuncture, Tui Na (Chinese Therapeutic Massage) and Kkanpo (Japanese Massage) in her clinic. After completing her training in the UK she traveled to China where she worked in a hospital in Nanjing. She then worked as acupuncturist in an NHS clinic in the Royal Free Hospital before going into private acupuncture practice.

She enjoys treating a wide range of problems including sports and musculo-skeletal injuries. She has special interest areas, which include treatment of women’s problems (gynaecological etc) and treatment of children.
