Acupuncture / Bodywork
I practice Chinese medicine as a qualified acupuncturist trained in both western and eastern medical theory. I take an integrated approach to your treatment addressing the root causes of illness or discomfort as well as the presenting symptoms.
Treatments are focused on enabling you to manage recovery as soon as possible. Where appropriate I advise on diet and lifestyle changes and teach physical exercises to support your recovery.
I have a personal passion for physical movement and specific interest in treating sports injuries.
My experience and ground knowledge of the internal/external ailments that can occur from modern active lifestyles informs my holistic approach to treating patients.

What to expect in a session
Acupuncture sessions begin with enquiry into your condition. This includes a discussion of your symptoms, palpation
(physical examination) and listening in on your pulses. Assessment can also involve some observation of your posture and gait both in standing and in walking.
All of this key information informs my focus strategy and treatment plan.
Treatment involves precision needling of key points on the body to influence the system, alleviate pain, or release blockages to the smooth flow of qi, blood and fluids throughout the body.
Bodywork and Tuina (massage) and ancillary techniques such as Moxa (therapeutic heat), Gua sha and cupping are also incorporated in treatment when appropriate.
Many people find acupuncture to be a remarkably relaxing non-invasive treatment process.
Please wear loose clothing where possible and have something light to eat before your treatment.
I am a pure Londoner of mixed Chinese/English heritage, our grandfather
Chang Sey Hee arrived in London in 1926 from Hainan, China. He came via the merchant navy where he met my grandmother Sarah and settled in Pennyfields east London (London's original Chinatown). The unique blend of English/Chinese culture has been around me and my family all our lives.
Before working as a practitioner I was a student of Chinese martial arts, Taijiquan & Qigong. This grounding gave me an awareness of my own internal and external systems, I became fascinated to enquire and learn more about human physiology.
When our young son became very ill we found Western medicine had reached its limits at Great Ormond st Hospital. After many anxious months we found he was able to make a successful recovery using acupuncture, diet and Tuina massage.
I was inspired hugely by this, from then onwards I studied Tuina and Chinese medicine in-depth for 5 years graduating from Westminster university. Since then I have continued to find myself learning from other talented teachers and practitioners including James Cattermole (Millers Way project) and Andrew and Julie Ann Nugent-Head ( Association for traditional studies ATS )
I am an accomplished artist and passionate craftsman reflected in my clinical attention to fine detail. As a father of three children I consider my extended family a great achievement, building relationships, growing, exploring and learning with them is my favorite way to spend time.
