Acupuncture

£75  -  £150
Acupuncturist Consultation

The initial consultation is not just an acupuncture consultation but a comprehensive assessment of the individual and their condition by an experienced physician. Diagnoses are made in conventional medical terms and treated using a holistic blend of conventional and complimentary medicine backed by evidence and proof of efficacy.

Follow up sessions concentrate on evaluation since the last visit which dictates the nature of future treatment. This is the best you can do for yourself.

£85  -  £150
Auricular Acupuncture

Auricular or ear acupuncture was known to the ancient Chinese but had few known acupuncture points. It was made more popular in the 20th Century by the French physician Nogier who developed it into a much more comprehensive system for diagnosis and treatment.

Needles used are finer than standard acupuncture needles. It is possible to treat any part of the body using ear points alone, but it is more usual to combine ear and body points to give best results.

In some cases, auricular acupuncture alone has been used effectively in patients who are modest and do not wish to have needles inserted in or around sensitive body areas.

£85  -  £150
Electro-Acupuncture

As the name suggests, electro-acupuncture involves the stimulation of needles using current. It sounds like a hair-raising experience, but it really much gentler than that.

Electro-acupuncture is considered a strong dose of acupuncture and is usually not used at the beginning of therapy. It is useful in numerous pain conditions and problems such as infertility and bladder problems.

£85  -  £150
Fertility Acupuncture

There is increasing evidence of the use of acupuncture in the support of IVF and other fertility treatments, as well as conditions such as polycystic ovaries and menstrual disorders. I have studied the evidence, know the protocols used in the studies and written about it myself  in a leading medical journal. This is the real-world use of  acupuncture which is backed by solid science. No voodoo, just proven benefit. Give yourself the best chance of success.

Ankle Injury Treatment

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Most cases do not need to be treated by surgery and can be treated by conservative measures. Get in contact to find out how. I have treated numerous cases successfully to give cure, improvement or at the very least, effective relief whilst awaiting surgery.

£85  -  £150
Chronic Pain Syndrome
£85  -  £150
Dry Needling
£85  -  £150
Sciatica Treatment

Sciatica can be primarily a nerve problem, but it is more commonly muscular in origin. Effective treatment to give cure or relief exists. No need to suffer further.

£85  -  £150
Spinal Rehabilitation - Neck and Back Injury
£85  -  £150
Tendonitis Treatment

The word tendonitis in most cases should not be used. Studies have found no evidence of any inflammation so no need to call it "-itis". Anyone continuing to use this term will continue to treat it ineffectively. This goes for tennis elbow, patella tendinopathy (the proper name), achilles tendinopathy etc. Many cases are sports injuries. Effective treatment exists so that you can get back to playing what you love.

£85  -  £150
Tennis Elbow

This mostly affects other sports and not tennis players. Most common are golfers who develop this problem for a variety of reasons related to their swing. Find out why and get effective treatment so that you can get back to the game.

Myofascial Release

The understanding and treatment of myofascial trigger points is known by few and practised effectively by fewer still. It is the most commonly overlooked source of pain and is easily amenable to treatment by those who know. It is criminal that it is not more widely practised.

Obstetrics / Gynaecology

From £93
Pregnancy Test

Ear Nose and Throat

£85  -  £150
Vertigo Treatment

To understand this troubling and sometimes very scary cause of dizziness, you must first understand what constitutes balance. This is a particular speciality of mine and I have a unique insight into the problem. Whatever, people tell you, it is very rarely an ENT problem. However, since there are so many causes of dizziness, it takes a trained physician to assess and treat this condition properly.

Orthopaedics

From £100
Trigger Finger Treatment

Holistic Health

£85  -  £150
Acupressure

Can holistic treatment really be practised by those clinicians who are not physicians. I would argue that it is totally impossible. Modern medicine has certainly got a bad name because it tends to focus mostly on physical problems. But the tradition of biopsychosocial medicine is now well ingrained in modern medicine for many years. It takes a physician to really understand the human body, physiology and disease, how everything fits together, and a knowledge of the human mind and the effects of psychology and the environment on health. 

Acupressure essentially involves the application of pressure over acupuncture points. The effect is not as strong as the insertion of needles but it may be preferable in individuals who are needle averse. The principles are the same as in acupuncture - the stimulation of the outside of the body to affect changes inside. Very clever!

£85  -  £150
Alternative Allergy Treatment

Numerous studies, some of which I have written about, have shown the efficacy of acupuncture in hay fever and allergic rhinitis. You need to plan treatment before the hay fever season starts. Please get in touch, there is strong science behind this.
