BRISTOL'S NATURAL APPROACH TO HEALTH
Have you ever felt that you just want to take responsibility for your own health?
Do you want to understand why you are the feeling the way that you do?
Would you like to understand the root cause of your symptoms?
Book an appointment with me for a full consultation, acupuncture treatment and naturopathic advice that could put your body back into balance allowing it to heal itself – be it Physical, Emotional or Mental imbalance all carried out from my fully equipped Bristol Clinic.
Acupuncture is a healthcare system that originated over two thousand years ago based on the principle that all illness is an indication that the body’s energy is out of balance. When the Qi and blood in our bodies is in harmony our body is able to heal itself and by using very fine needles at specific points on the body acupuncture regulates the flow of your body’s vital energy (Qi).
Because acupuncture increases your body’s natural healing ability it can be used to help practically any condition with increasing research into the effectiveness for a wide range of conditions, including:
Mental Health (Anxiety, Depression, Low Mood)
Gynaecology (Infertility, Menopause, Menstrual Irregularities, PMS)
Pain (Joint pain, Chronic lower back pain, Frozen shoulder, Injury)
Digestion (IBS, Bloating, Acid Reflux)
Other (Migraine, Sinusitis, Asthma)
I provide traditional acupuncture in Bristol to help with all of the above health issues and many more. Depending on your condition I may also use additional treatments such as Cupping, Moxibustion, or Electro Acupuncture and as part of your consultation I will also discuss lifestyle & nutrition changes & herbs/supplements that may be able to help.
Having personally experienced the frustration and heartbreak of infertility and miscarriage, this is an area that is truly close to my heart and the main reason why I started practicing acupuncture and naturopathy.
I understand what you need to go through when trying to get pregnant and can support you through the journey, physically and emotionally. Everything is connected in Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) theory which is why working holistically improves fertility, stimulating ovulation, supporting symptoms of PCOS, regulating periods, managing endometriosis, optimising ovarian function and even thickening the uterine lining among others.
I am extremely passionate about Natural Fertility and have spent the last few years researching extensively into this area and I'm proud to be able to use my knowledge to help my patients in Bristol.
Research has also shown that acupuncture combined with Assisted reproduction such as IVF or IUI can help achieve a higher success rate, as well as supporting from an emotional perspective throughout treatment.
Please get in touch to talk through how I could support you during this time at my Bristol Clinic.
"Thank you so much for all of your support during my IVF treatment. I'm absolutely sure that it is what made the difference"
"Thank you so much for all of your help - I can't believe after finally getting my periods back after 9 months I'm now pregnant after just 3 cycles!"
Naturopathic Medicine is based on providing natural therapies to restore physiological, psychological and structural balance in the body that then enables the body to heal itself.
Chemical and environmental pollutants - prevalent in Bristol, high intake of processed foods, lack of good quality sleep, excessive screen use, stress and overuse of western medicines for minor health problems are all impacting on our general health and well-being.
At my clinic in the heart of Bristol, I will seek to identify the root cause of any symptoms, selecting the most gentle and non-invasive treatment to try and restore balance. This could include changes to diet, lifestyle, herbs, flower essences, tissue salts or supplements.
BACH FLOWER REMEDIES
Bach Flower essences are extracts from flowers which have a positive effect on emotional imbalances. You may have heard of ‘Rescue Remedy’ or even used it when you have had a stressful work meeting or exam coming up. But did you know that there are actually 38 individual Bach Flower remedies each with its own personality and healing power?
Their power lies in the ability to change negative emotions rather than suppressing them and remedies can support emotional well-being through major change periods in your life such as death, divorce, teenage years, trauma, self esteem and everything in between.
As part of your treatment with me, here in Bristol, we can talk through your behaviours, self-beliefs and fears and I can prescribe you an individualised mixed remedy. The Bach Flower Essences are 100% natural and can be used by children and adults with absolutely no side effects and no contraindications to other medications.
*30ml personalised remedy costs £10 - consultation fee is included within your treatment cost
“Disease of the body itself is nothing but the result of the disharmony between soul and mind. Remove the disharmony, and we regain harmony between soul and mind, and the body is once more perfect in all its parts.’
Dr. Edward Bach
Cupping is a traditional Chinese and Middle Eastern practice that is used to treat a variety of conditions, now it's available in Bristol. Using glass cups, a suction is created by inserting fire into the cup and placing quickly onto the skin. The suction increases blood circulation to the area which can relieve muscle tension, encourage blood flow and cell repair.
It is especially good for relieving sciatica, back and neck pain, stiff muscles, fatigue, migraines and rheumatism but can also be helpful for reducing inflammation, expelling pathogens and calming the nervous system.
I also use a method called Flash cupping where the cups are continuously placed on and off the back very quickly – this is effective for releasing the pathogens associated when we get cold or flu and can help with coughs.
A mild electric current is passed between the acupuncture needles during this treatment applying more stimulation that would be achieved manually.
The purpose is to promote the circulation of qi making it especially effective for pain conditions.
Moxabustion is a traditional Chinese medicine technique that involves burning a stick of the herb mugwort near to the surface of the skin to strengthen the blood, warm and invigorate the flow of qi in the body and maintain general health.
It can be used for any pain condition that is improved with the application of heat including pain caused by injury, arthritic pain or period pain or cramps. It can also help with digestive problems and infertility where there is an indication of ‘internal cold’ due to its warming nature. Pain management is an epidemic issue in Bristol, but Moxa could be the treatment you have been looking for. At my Bristol clinic I will assess your pain and create a treatment plan to address your condition.
Moxa also has the ability to change the position of a breech baby. By warming an acupuncture point on the little toe the heat encourages the release of 2 pregnancy hormones (placental estrogen and prostaglandins) which lead to uterine contractions that stimulate the baby to move.
My fascination with Acupuncture started when I was searching for therapies that would support me through my IVF journey.
Whilst the end result was a successful one for me, I became intrigued by the benefits that acupuncture had on the rest of my life; reducing stress levels, helping with insomnia, regulating my periods and removing the pain that came with them that I had always associated as normal. Helping with headaches and sinusitis and even as a cure for my hayfever.
After 20 years in the Agency world, I decided to give it all up and retrain so that I could share my experience with others in Bristol and help others improve their health & wellbeing in the same way that I had.
I studied for 4 years at the College of Naturopathic Medicine in Bristol to graduate as a Naturopathic Acupuncturist. The additional Naturopathic element of my studies in Bristol enables me to include other holistic treatments as part of my overall consultation, including nutritional advice, herbs, tissue salts and bach flower remedies
