How Acupuncture can help you improve your Health & Wellbeing

Acupuncture is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and is a whole health care system including herbal remedies, cupping, and nutrition, which have all been used for thousands of years. The basis of TCM is the idea of qi, the bodyโ€™s vital energy. TCM treatments at my wellbeing clinic promote the movement of qi throughout your body to help bring balance back to your body. The goal of Acupuncture is to correct this imbalance which can cause a variety of ailments and conditions that you may have. Acupuncture uses very thin needles (which are thinner than your hair!) that stimulate pressure points and other are...

"If something won't matter in 5 years, don't waste more than 5 minutes worrying about it now."

"If something won't matter in 5 years, don't waste more than 5 minutes worrying about it now." I know it might sound simple, but it's one of those phrases that has resonated with me.ย  Many of us are worriers; we can't help it! It's amazing how worked up we can get over something JUST IN OUR HEADS โ€” potentially something that might not even happen in our real lives. All that thinking and worrying, and stressing takes time and energy away from other activities we could be (and probably should be) doing instead. And when we neglect the things we should be doing, we feel more stressed because we're behind, and start to worry about how we will find the time to do everything we need to do.ย  It's a vicious cycle that's not necess...

But, ย there is a national shortage of these medicines, and it's not suitable for all women. Research published last weekย  showed the increased risk of canc...

Can Acupuncture help Back Pain?

As a traditional Acupuncturist, one of the many conditions I treat in my wellbeing clinic is back pain.

But for some people, it can continue for months or even years. Back pain can be caused by many different things, including mechanical or structural problems with the spine, inflammatory conditions, and other medical conditions.ย  I get many phone calls asking me if Acupuncture is a suitable treatment option for...

Self care tips this Autumn Season In Chinese medicine, Autumn is the season of the element Metal (or air). Grief is the emotion of the Metal element.

How beautiful is Aurora Borealis...

I just love the aurora borealis, I was captivated by this beautiful photo of the aurora at Saltburnย beach front (taken earlier in the year).

The aura of the northern lights is not without its cultural interpretations, regional beliefs and social superstitions, w...

It's a therapeutic technique that helps us to connect our energy to the energy of the Earth. It's based on the idea that by allowing our bare skin to come into direct conta...

Ylang Ylang the Oil of the Inner Child

In each of us, there is a young, suffering child. We were all at one time children. And the child you once were did not just up and vanish, to be replaced by a perfectly formed, always responsible adult. Indeed, most of us act very much like children, at least now and then. Itโ€™s in the moment you have a meltdown over a parking ticket, or you react to a bad day. If we had a tough or loveless childhood, some of us are actually children most (if not all) of the time. We might loo...
