Providing you with affordable healthcare
Our multibed community clinic offers low cost, affordable acupuncture treatments and gives access to quality care for those who can't afford the regular prices. The low price allows for more frequent treatments as it is often necessary to have acupuncture once a week for a period of time in order to get the best long lasting results. If you only have a few treatments, or your treatments are too infrequent, the acupuncture may not be able to build up the momentum for the healing that you seek. Our practitioners are highly qualified and fully insured. We are located at St John's Centre in Elephant & Castle, London SE17.

CHINESE HERBAL MEDICINE
Acupuncture is an ancient medicine, one of the oldest, most commonly used systems of healing form which is originating in China about 3,500 years ago. Acupuncture is a way of treating the imbalance of energy called Qi by inserting the needles in the body. Qi is the substance that nourishes our bodies and provides us with energy. Qi can get depleted, stagnated and blocked in the body, which manifest as pain or form of illness. Acupuncture can smooth the flow of Qi and restore the balance in the body and promote wellbeing. Chinese Herbal Medicine works internally in deeper level, and compliments the acupuncture treatment to speed up the healing process. Acupuncure session can be combined with Chinese herbal formula, moxibustion, cupping, or bodywork to achieve the best outcome.
Acupuncture can focus on areas and points on the face and help to improve elasticity and signs of ageing, it can also address underlying issues which can be contributing to areas of concern on the face. It is a natural, safe and viable alternative to more invasive procedures without the risks or side effects.
Facial Acupuncture can increase collagen production which helps to smooth out wrinkles and firm the skin. Bags under the eyes, drooping eyelids and sagging skin on the face and neck can be significantly reduced. The treatment stimulates local circulation of blood and lymph, which improves muscle tone, encourages tightening of the pores and brightens the eyes.
A course of 5 to 10 treatments is recommended. Most patients notice a difference after one or two treatments, however, the effects become most noticeable and lasting after 5 treatments. Following the initial course of treatment, maintenance treatments of once a month can prolong the results.
