About Dr (TCM) Attilio D'Alberto On this page About Qualifications Affiliations Experience Achievements Interview I'm a traditional acupuncture expert. I have my own acupuncture style, developed after practising for over 19 years and having learnt different styles of acupuncture developed from ancient techniques. I am passionate about acupuncture and Chinese medicine, the awareness it gives me and how I can use that to show people how to improve their health. I use fine needles to make it as painless as possible. I blend ancient theories of Chinese medicine with modern and alternative medicine to give a deep insight into illness and disharmony within my clinical practice. I then use several complementary medicine treatment strategies to tackle the problem allowing for a quicker recovery. I believe it's important to explain to people what's going on with them and the disharmony they have, as it empowers them. This allows us to work consciously together to improve health.
