Acupuncture is a form of traditional medicine that started in China and the far east more than two thousand years ago. Selected points on meridians that are mapped out across the body are needled to stimulate the circulation of ‘Qi’ or ‘energy’ helping the body to find a natural energetic balance. Acupuncture affects the nervous system, hormones, modulates inflammation and acts on multiple biological pathways - helping the body to find homeostasis.
Other treatment methods such as Cupping, Moxa, Gua Sha or Electro-acupuncture may also be combined into a session if appropriate to the treatment plan, which will complement the acupuncture.
Facial Acupuncture & Massage
Facial acupuncture is an effective natural way of reducing wrinkles, eliminating fine lines, lifting and toning sagging muscles, improving skin colour and texture. Generally giving you that fresh-faced glow - with NO chemicals or surgery!
Using super fine needles to create tiny micro-traumas to the skin increasing collagen production and improving the circulation of blood and lymph. This will result in cell regeneration, muscle toning, and lifting. Each session will end with a relaxing facial massage often using Gua sha or silicone facial cups to enhance the effects of the treatment.
Low Cost Community Acupuncture
Myself and my colleague Rebecca from good good acupuncture have set up an affordable community multi-bed acupuncture clinic in London ‘Mount Pleasant Multi-bed’. Patients receive treatments in comfortable reclining chairs or massage tables, we have enough space for 6 people distributed in two rooms. This allows us to offer acupuncture at a reduced rate without compromising on the quality of the treatment.
As it is important to have frequent sessions during a course of acupuncture treatments this model gives those who cannot afford regular private sessions the possibility to access the magic of acupuncture more often. We offer a ‘sliding scale’ pricing system where you pay what you can afford between £20 - £50. The consultation time is the same as a private session, but once the needles are in we will move onto our next patient, leaving you to relax into the treatment.
