Acupuncture in Twickenham, London
Acupuncture treatment originates from traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and ancient Chinese culture. It is thousands of years old. It uses a holistic approach to treat a wide range of health problem and improve general health.It isn't painful like most people imagine. I use very fine pins, not syringes so you'll hardly feel anything. The pins go into deep tissue and not into blood veins.
A lot of people in London find the use of traditional holistic treatment is effective for their pain without it being painful. It's perfectly safe even in pregnancy.
Choosing the right acupuncturist in London and Twickenham for you
Choosing a London acupuncturist is very much a personal choice. There are certain traits that you would expect to see in order to give you the best healthcare. They include:
They see you and not just your condition
They should see you as a person and not just the health issues you have. You are a lot more than your health problems issues. They should see all aspects of your health, both emotionally, mentally as well as physically. In that way, they will see all of you and can then treat all of you.
I tend to look at the bigger picture, the person's health problem and their overall health. Treating both helps the health problem and makes sure that it's less likely to return.
They offer a tailor made treatment plan
They should offer a tailor made treatment plan that suits your needs and not theirs. Treatment should be explained with a strategy plan of getting you well again.
I explain to all my patients what I see is wrong with them and then advise a course of action which includes the treatments I offer as well as diet and lifestyle optimisation advice.
They should be professionally regulated
Ideally, they should be a member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAC), which upholds professional standards and should not practice western medical accupuncture. They should specialise in accupuncture and practice traditional Chinese medicine.
I am fully qualified and a member of the British Acupuncture Council, the largst governing body in the UK for acupuncture.
