Are you or someone you know stuggling with pain?

Are you fed up with taking medication which does not seem to help?

Have you tried acupuncture before and it did not help?

Although our Acupuncture clinic in Solihull, Birmingham is well know for fertility treatment we also use specialised techniques for dealing with all types of painful conditions. The unique Korean and Japanese treatment protocols we use can in some instances give immediate and lasting pain relief. Our patients are amazed at how quickly conditions like severe back, neck , knee or shoulder pain which may have affected the patient for years, can rapidly respond to our treatment. If you or someone you know is suffering from one of the following conditions and medication or other forms of treatment are not helping, you may be very surprised at how quickly my unique style of acupuncture can help:

Back pain, Sciatica, Lumbago, herniated disc , frozen shoulder, knee pain, Gout, neck pain, Dystonia, IBS, Crohns disease, Diverticular disease, ulcerative colitis, gall stones, kidney stones, cluster headaches, tennis elbow, hip pain or arthritis pain and any digestive or skin disorders such as psoriasis or eczema.

Our clinic is within walking distance from Solihull town centre and Railway station on the Warwick road where we have free parking. Both Myself and my associte Hannh are highly skilled and experienced practitioners, degree trained and fully insured.

I have been asked on several occassions what the difference is between the type of acupuncture called dry needling or medical acupuncture and traditional acupuncture as practiced my us and members of The British Acupucture Council:

 How does acupuncture differ from medical acupuncture?

These are two completely different therapies. 

 Traditional acupuncture is a stand-alone system which uses diagnostic techniques and treatment methods based on the principles of oriental medicine. As well as relieving immediate symptoms, acupuncture addresses the underlying causes of illness and promotes ongoing physical health and emotional wellbeing. It restores the overall health of the person at the same time as treating their primary condition.

· BAcC registered acupuncturists are trained to:

o read subtle signs in the body to understand the precise cause of any collection of physical symptoms

o know relevant western medicine including anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, pathology and aetiology

o know the location and functions of 360+ acupuncture points on the body

o select the most appropriate points prescription for each individual patient

o treat both the underlying cause of an illness as well as relieve immediate physical symptoms

o recognise the ‘red flags' that indicate cancer, cardio-vascular disease, diabetes and other life-threatening illnesses, and refer those patients to other healthcare practitioners for tests and treatment where appropriate.

· Medical acupuncture is a recent development used by doctors, nurses, midwives, dentists, physiotherapists, osteopaths and chiropractors. Sometimes called ‘dry needling', in this version of acupuncture a very small number of acupuncture points are used to relieve immediate physical symptoms. Dry needling is used as an adjunct to the main therapeutic technique and within the framework of a western medical diagnosis. Unlike traditional acupuncture it does not seek to regulate qi or address the underlying imbalance that caused the symptoms to arise.
