Each or our acupuncturists has over 15 years of clinical experience and have provided acupuncture for East London and Hackney from Bethnal Green for much of that time. If you’d like to know if acupuncture can help you or to make a booking then please call and speak with our reception team on 0203 022 5892. If they are unable to answer your query then they can arrange for you to speak with directly with one of our practitioners.

Acupuncture relies on the use of ultra fine sterile needles that are inserted into specific points along the meridians. This process looks to stimulate the body’s natural healing response, helping to return to a state of optimal energy flow along the meridians, resulting in better wellbeing. 

Our acupuncturists practice TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) and 5 element styles of acupuncture, having undergone comprehensive training over a number of years. TCM treats the underlying physical cause of disease or imbalance whereas 5 -element acupuncture is based on the premise that your particular underlying ‘element’ is out of balance and upsets your equilibrium. This may manifest on a more emotional or spiritual level. As an integrated system it addresses the whole person, from the physical to the spiritual. Both systems of acupuncture are integrated. 

There is considerable evidence-based research demonstrating the effectiveness of acupuncture, which you can find at the Acupuncture Research Resource Centre or the British Acupuncture Council. Acupuncture has been shown to be effective in treating back pain and the NHS recommends medical acupuncture in the treatment of back pain.
