Acupuncture and Mental Health

The chances are you, or someone close to you, has been affected by a mental health issue. Whether it’s low mood, depression, anxiety, or a behavioural problem, according to the Mental Health Foundation 1 in 6 of us will have experienced a problem with our mental health within the past week. Stress is a major cause of depression and anxiety. There is only so much stress we can take before we start to struggle and experience symptoms of low mood, anxiety, and other physical symptoms like headaches and digestive problems. Depression is by no means a sign of weakness; it is a clear signal you have been dealing with huge amounts of stress for too long, and your body needs care and attention. Why use Acupuncture? The highly personalised approach of Traditional...

Celebrating World Acupuncture Day 2018

»Posted by on Nov 7, 2018 in Acupuncture in York

It’s an exciting time to be part of the global acupuncture movement.  Next month sees the inaugural World Acupuncture Day conference taking place in Paris and British Acupuncturists are at the forefront of the celebrations. The conference on November 15th brings together acupuncturists, researchers, and other medical and health professionals to share knowledge and expertise of acupuncture. The Chair of the British Acupuncture Council Phil Rose-Neil will address the 1000 plus delegates to discuss how acupuncture could be a more integral part of the NHS. Many GPs and physiotherapists are trained in dry needling techniques, but these methods are limited in their use, and a fuller acceptance of TCM Acupuncture could bring far-reaching results for many more...

Meeting York Cardiologist Dr Sanjay Gupta

»Posted by on Jul 30, 2018 in Acupuncture and Sleep, Acupuncture in York

As many of my clients know, I firmly believe in a collaborative approach to healthcare.  One that integrates different therapies to provide the best outcome for the patient. I love working closely with doctors, herbalists, chiropractors, nutritional therapists, and pharmacists to really personalise a client’s care and meet their unique needs. Acupuncture works perfectly alongside so many other modalities, and I often find the combined effect of two or more therapies gives a greater result than any of them would individually. Acupuncture meets Cardiology I recently had the pleasure of meeting Dr Sanjay Gupta, a cardiologist at Nuffield hospital in York.  Dr Gupta specialises in cardiac imaging and has trained with some of the leading minds in cardiology.

I am officially a British Citizen!

»Posted by on Jul 24, 2018 in Acupuncture in York, Medical Acupuncture vs Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncture

In May this year I had the wonderful honour of finally gaining British citizenship. With all the unrest and uncertainty caused by Brexit, I decided to gain some assurance of my rights to stay here in the UK and applied for citizenship. What a journey it has been! Mountains of paperwork and documents! It was all worth it though, and I spent an exciting and emotional morning with friends at York Register Office for the citizenship ceremony where I received my official certificate from the Mayor and Sheriff of York. Practising Acupuncture in Europe As you may have guessed I am Italian by birth, and I am still able to hold an Italian passport alongside the UK one. I have lived in six countries all over the world but haven’t always been able to practise Traditional...

Acupuncture proven to work – says World Health Organisation

»Posted by on Mar 9, 2018 in Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncture

People are often concerned about the evidence for alternative health treatments, like acupuncture.  If there isn’t a long list of randomised controlled trials showing how effective a treatment is, they doubt its validity. I understand these concerns and could not practice acupuncture if I didn’t feel confident about the research and evidence base behind it! The problem with RCTs Randomised controlled trials (RCTs) are well suited to drug research, where you can give the medication to one group of participants, and a placebo pill or different drug to another.  The groups can be double blind too, where neither the participants or researchers know who is taking what. However, RCTs are not well suited to assessing other forms of treatment.  With alternative...
