In practice, we often see combinations of these complaints or problems associated with these. If you you have questions about a specific complaint and want to know if acupuncture is suitable for this, please feel free to contact me.

I graduated from the college of 5 Element Acupuncture in 1984, and worked at the Waterloo Acupuncture Center in central London for many years. Our clients were mostly busy city people and their complaints were often similar to what we now call burnout. They include colds and flue, insomnia and anxiety, low immune resistance, depression and tiredness, digestion problems, decreased libido and enjoyment of life.

Although these are recognizable common patterns, the treatment for each person is unique. Symptoms are pointers to the persons deeper needs and removing the symptom does not necessarily answer these . Acupuncture can clean the body from viruses, stress, negative emotions or pain. At the same time the focus of the treatment is to restore good functioning of the organism on all levels. Patients are empowered to make the necessary changes in their lives.
