Ealing Acupuncture & Shiatsu Clinic

Ealing Acupuncture and Shiatsu Clinic offers Chinese herbal medicine, Shiatsu massage and acupuncture in Ealing, West London. In my practice, I take appointments for only one person at a time. In the case of acupuncture, I do not leave my patients alone with needles left in them, as is done in most practices. This is because I would like to give maximum care and attention to my patients.

We normally associate acupuncture with needles, but acupuncture in Chinese literally means "needles and moxa". Moxa is dried medicinal herb, Artemisia or magwort, which are burnt and used as a source of heat. Shiatsu is a Japanese massage technique based on Chinese medicine theory.

Su Wen, an ancient Chinese medical text, describes different types of treatment; Surgery in the East, needles in South, herbal medicine in West, moxa treatment in North and massage in the Central part of China. It suggests there is an integration of these branches of medicine, each with their own advantages. In this clinic, this integrated approach of Chinese medicine is fundamental.

Therefore, a combination of the above methods could be tailored depending on your condition and constitution. But which type of therapy you would like to have is equally important. We can discuss together what would be the best option for you. After all, you can have Shiatsu only if you wish.
