Find the cause of your pain
Five Element Acupuncture addresses the cause of your disease, it does not focus on the palliation of symptoms. This system teaches us that the body wants to heal itself: when all five elements are working in balance, the body, mind and spirit are happy and healthy. When any one element suffers an imbalance, all the other systems suffer.
"Perhaps most important of all, when understanding the very heart and foundation of Five-Element Acupuncture, is the fundamental belief that many physical problems expressed and experienced by patients today are the product of emotional and spiritual distress as much as any physical cause."
fertility, virility, libido, Sexual Dysfunction
Sexual activity is very much about the flow of qi, or energy. When we speak, touch or make love we are connecting at an energetic level. The quality of connection is a direct result of the energy levels available to be open for intimacy, power sexual function, and nourish new life. Research is widely available about how acupuncture affects hormone levels, conception and sperm cell count. Unsurprisingly, unlocking any stagnant qi will support the body's journey to regain energy for sex and reproduction. Patients have also reported improvements in complications associated with menopause, vaginal dryness, premature ejaculation, sperm motility and erectile dysfunction.
insomnia, depression, anger, anxiety
Endemic pill-popping provides temporary relief from the debilitating exhaustion from lack of sleep, a whirling mind, or uncontrollable outbursts. Acupuncture is no substitute for necessary medical treatment for severe circumstances, but can lubricate the flow of qi around the body, encourage the heart to function more evenly, and calm the nervous system. Re-establishing balance in these fundamental energetic systems can provide a more stable backdrop against which you can continue to heal.
digestive, breathing and skin disorders
The flow of energy directly affects our intake of breath, appropriate appetite, a balanced ability to transform food into energy, the uninterrupted transportation of this energy all over the body, and finally, the ability to expel what is not required. Obesity, gout, bowel disorders, stomach ulcers, rashes, asthma, and eczema are often the result of a disruption in the natural flow of incoming qi and the releasing waste. Acupuncture helps clear stagnation and rebalance qi flow to restore the healthy functioning of these organ systems.
While my wish is to be as available as possible, within reason, to all my clients, my regular schedule and clinic locations are as follows:
- Central London (Holborn or Vauxhall) : Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday
- Sandridge: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday
Your acupuncture treatment will be conducted in full confidentiality and privacy. A first consultation may last up to 90 minutes. Subsequent treatments last 45 minutes to one hour.
If you have queries about your condition or if you are unsure if acupuncture can help you, I am available for a free 15 minute telephone consultation.
In the first session, I will spend time getting to know you and understand your condition. If possible, please avoid wearing heavy fragrances/aftershave or make-up. This will help me get a clearer picture of your energetic state and natural complexion.
I am fully insured by Balens and certified by the London Institute of Five Element Acupuncture.
