  • Our good health is a complex and subtle integration of our physical strength, mental clarity, emotional well-being and core feelings of security. Any number of factors, both internal and external, can upset that balance and restoring it is the focus of any acupuncture treatment.

    Over the last 30 years, the benefits of acupuncture have become more widely understood in the treatment of a broad range of physical conditions, such as anxiety, stress and insomnia. Acupuncture therapy is now widely used by osteopaths, physiotherapists and GP’s. What is less well known at the moment is its ability to work at the deeper level of our emotional and mental well-being. During the 25 years l have been practising acupuncture, l have seen a great deal of evidence that the true excellence of acupuncture lies in its ability to bring us back to ourselves.

  • Testimonials

    These are some testimonials from clients of mine who have chosen acupuncture for various physical symptoms or anxiety and stress. Perhaps their physical health has been cause for concern through symptoms of anxiety, including social anxiety and panic attacks. Other causes of anxiety for my clients have been anxious thoughts, burnout, excessive worry and irritability. Acupuncture can help with stress management, anxiety symptoms, stress reduction and sleep problems. Some have felt fearful especially in social situations and find that acupuncture helps relieve stress, is calming and can deal with anxiety. Whether or not you have a diagnosed medical condition, the whole person is more important than these individual symptoms. Read below for some client stories.

  • "I have had treatments with Melanie for some time now and I can honestly say they have improved my life no end. Before treatment, I was suffering from a wide variety of complaints but mainly all due to chronic fatigue and stress. It took some time before I noticed a difference but the funny thing was my husband noticed it straight away. He used to say “you're always so nice after an acupuncture treatment!”. I had spent years just managing to go to work and keep a smile for that, the rest of the time I was miserable and anxious. That changed and so did my symptoms. My life is totally different, I feel well! I love the way Melanie does a consultation. She spends 20 mins talking to you about how you are and what is troubling you then the rest of the time with needles. She only uses a few so no need to panic if needles aren’t your thing. You don’t even know they are going in. It is like a light tap! I cannot recommend Melanie highly enough "

    Gemma , Osteopath

  • "After a winter of feeling low emotionally and battling constant colds and viruses, I decided to try acupuncture. Seeing Melanie for acupuncture, initially every week for a 6-week block, really helped to give my immune system the boost it needed but it also helped me to make some life decisions too. Seeing Melanie is more than just having acupuncture; she talks to you before each treatment, encouraging self reflection and always makes sure she understands what you want from the treatment. This talking, coupled with the targeted acupuncture, has brought back a greater sense of self, balance, calm and strength. I still see Melanie each month and find this continues to help with my emotional and mental well-being. I really would recommend acupuncture with Melanie; she has helped me to find greater balance, serenity and strength in my everyday life; as a busy working mum of two young children this has been essential for both me and my family! "

  • "I first started seeing Mel when my husband and I were thinking of trying for a baby. She supported me through this time, the pregnancy and early motherhood with care, insight and empathy. I leave our sessions feeling calm, reassured, centred and re balanced. Her approach is so effective and I cannot recommend her highly enough."
