integrating acupuncture into your care plan
Acupuncture, originating in Traditional Chinese Medicine, involves inserting thin needles through the skin at specific points on the body to balance the body's natural energy flow.
A wealth of research supports the ability of acupuncture to provide relief for a wide range of conditions like chemotherapy-associated nausea or fatigue, peripheral neuropathy, headaches, dental pain and chronic stress.

East Meets West
GET THE SUPPORT YOU NEED
Trained in Western, allopathic medicine, I have a wealth of tools at my disposal: from lab tests, advanced imaging, and an arsenal of potent medications.
But, particularly in the last 10 years as I’ve travelled the world, my awareness of other systems of medicine has grown and I've seen how TCM and other practices can complement western medicine.
Acupuncture is one of the practices I am confident to recommend to my patients. If you'd like to discuss whether acupuncture could be an appropriate part of your treatment plan, please get in touch below
