At my Clinic of Chinese Medicine I specialise in acupuncture and herbal treatments in private practice at Wallingford Community Hospital and at Goring-on-Thames. Acupuncture is an ancient form of medicine brought to the West from Asia, and is widely used across the world as a stand-alone treatment or in combination with other forms of medicine. In China it is used alongside conventional Western Medicine for treatment of all sorts of conditions.
What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture influences the flow of ‘qi’, energy, along pathways in the body known as ‘meridians’, treatments involving the insertion of very fine needles into specific points along the meridians. The points are selected by the practitioner according to the diagnosis of the patient’s condition.
Acupuncture provides a number of benefits for your health and wellbeing, including preparation for, during and after pregnancy, as well as other conditions, and is used safely and effectively alongside conventional medicine.
