Alice graduated from the college of integrated Chinese medicine in 2016 since then she has worked in private practices

Alice is a member of the British Acupuncture Council and adheres to their struct codes of practice, and is fully insured.
In Chinese medicine the focus is the patien'’s overall health, we treat the root of the cause not just the symptom.
At your first appointment a full health history will be taken, you will also receive a short treatment to prepare your body for future treatments.
Acupuncture needles are sterile and single use, some are retained for 15-20 minutes whilst others are inserted and removed straight away.
The most common points are located on legs and arms.
Acupuncture can be very relaxing and it is surprising how many patients have fallen asleep during treatment!
Tuina is a form of medical massage and usually incorporates most of the body not just the area causing the problem.
The massage takes place over your clothing, so it is advisable to wear loose cotton clothing. Tuina is especially
good at treating chronic muscular and joint pain.
It is beneficial for conditions such as fibromyalgia, arthritis, sciatica, muscle spasms, sports injuries, neck, shoulder and back pain.
Alice treated me successfully when I suffered from Polymyalgia Rheumatica. She strengthened my immune system and helped relieve a painful shoulder. She is patient and sympathetic and her treatments are carefully considered to achieve the best possible outcome.
Alice will be pleased to welcome you on Mondays and Wednesdays. at New Body Barn. Please mention New Body Barn when making contact. Email Alice:
