ORIGINS

Having originated in China over 2,000 years ago, it involves the insertion of ultra-fine sterilised single-use needles into acupuncture points, carefully selected for a specific health problem.

“Having practised martial arts for a number of years, I already had a fascination with the Far East, but then I then learnt about the 2000 year plus, holistic nature of Chinese medicine and acupuncture; how each part of our health and physiology contributes and causes disease and dysfunction; and that Chinese medicine could not only treat it, but also prevent disease. Amazing!”

WHAT THEIR PATIENTS SAY

Caroline, 49, London

I lead a busy life with a demanding job and when the hot flushes started I found that it interfered with my work, often causing me embarrassment and affecting my concentration. To make things worse, my sleep was being disturbed several times each night. Within two treatments my flushes had reduced and after two months had completely stopped. I’m now enjoying great sleep, my energy levels are back to normal and my work is better than ever. Robin really helped my life and I highly recommend anyone suffering with hot flushes to approach him for help.
