Acupuncture Dissolves Stress & Tension in Your Body

Once the needles are in place you will feel an inner calm as the stress and tension that has become 'normal' slowly melts away leaving you feeling calm and relaxed. Acupuncture is also a dynamic treatment so when you feel suddenly unwell as it can treat acute symptoms such as  sore throat, sneezing, stomach upsets, dysmenorrhea and migraine, allergies and Hay Fever and body pains.  It is also good for chronic conditions such as auto-immunity, arthritis, pain, migraine, thyroid conditions, diabetes, tiredness 

What is Acupuncture? Does it work?

Acupuncture promotes the even flow of Chi - our vital energy, relieving stress, tension and pain, creating a deep sense of relaxation. The body's own self-healing is activated in this deeply relaxed state. Acupuncture helps you to unwind and de-stress whilst treating many different health conditions effectively

Acupuncture assists in treating not only immediate symptoms, but also underlying constitutional imbalances by improving overall health and immune system. Many people say they feel greater sense of well-being, more energy and focus following a course of Acupuncture.

Acupuncture is as effective in treating either acute or chronic conditions and avoids side effects. Early treatment of minor symptoms can help prevent more serious health problems worsening or even developing.

How does Acupuncture work & How does it help you?

Treatment is tailored to each individual in your unique set of symptoms created by deeper imbalances in the body. The person is treated rather than the condition or symptom. You will be asked some basic questions to reveal where you think the issues are. Then the pracitioner uses observation and eastern techniques such as Pulse, Tongue and Hara diagnosis, combined with observations made during the treatment and information gathered during the consultation to create a picture which is the foundation of the treatment plan for each client.

Highly recommended for anyone new to acupuncture or anyone who just wants an excellent massage, acupressure, and acupuncture treatment. - Neil a client since 2014

Rachel is a very sensitive and focused practitioner who has treated me with success for an injury and other issues. Equally I got my teenage daughter to attend treatment sessions for different issues. If we need any healing support Rachel is a first port of call in the family. She uses a wide range of techniques to give effect to the target remedy. We recommend. - Liz from Tufnell Park

My reaction to the acupuncture was awesome – for the first time I had peace of mind – I was pain free. I had been troubled by shoulder pain, since aged 14. I had been in continuous pain. - William Mackenzie

Fertility Treatment I am thrilled as i am now pregnant! Yeah! I genuinely believe the acupuncture made a huge difference and put me back on track so thank you so so much. - Hayley Barnet

I  found Rachel by searching google and went to her with whip lash, and an uncomfortable back. The treatment was gentle and relaxing. Not only did it clear up my back problems, but I also felt benefits in other areas of my well being. For the first time in years my period was regular, which has been a constant worry but something I didn't even consider cupping could help with.

Speaking for myself, I’m not a great believer in lines of Chi, energy fields and other ‘alternative’ therapy theories – Rachel radiates an energy and enthusiasm for her field that’s convincing even this old cynic.

Previously experienced in Shiatsu, Rachel trained in Acupuncture at Westminster University, graduating in 2004. Why move on to acupuncture? it the most powerful therapy dealing with the ebb and flow of energy around the body.

It’s good for the emotional side, for anxiety, for insomnia, depression – but it’s excellent too for specific localised issues such as a frozen shoulder or back pain. I crack a poor joke about acupuncture for fear of needles, but Rachel cuts in quickly to make a serious point: That means that it’s up to the practitioner to be sensitive to the patient’s expectations during the treatment - using the finest, needles making the experience relaxing and positive from the outset. - Alec Myers
