Ancient healing for modern day life

Hi there!

My name is Katie and I am a fully qualified and insured Acupuncturist based in Clapham Common, specialising in Traditional Chinese Medicine.

I have dedicated four years to studying Acupuncture at the College of Naturopathic Medicine in London, where I also received an education in Naturopathic principles, enabling me to provide a holistic approach to health and wellbeing.

As an acupuncturist, I look to work with each person on an individual basis, providing a completely bespoke and unique treatment plan tailored specifically to your needs.

I provide acupuncture treatments at the Light Centre, Clapham Common, working with clients from Clapham, Balham, Battersea, Wandsworth & surrounding areas.

What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a holistic approach to wellness that involves the strategic placement of thin needles into specific points on the body, aiming to stimulate the body's natural healing processes.

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine philosophy, the body's vital energy, known as "Qi," flows through channels called meridians. When the flow of Qi is balanced, the body remains healthy; however, imbalances or blockages in this energy flow can lead to various health issues such as migraines, PMS or digestive issues or even stress and anxiety. Acupuncture is believed to restore the harmonious flow of Qi and promote overall well-being.

Through the use of needles, cupping, Gua Sha and moxa, I work to move, nourish and tonify your Qi to help you feel your best self. Additional naturopathic and dietary advice will also be provided to ensure that healing continues outside of the treatment room.

What acupuncture can help with:

Mental Health

Acupuncture is a holistic approach to health, addressing not only physical symptoms but also the mind-body connection. Acupuncture can be very effective in helping with mental health concerns, including stress, burn-out, anxiety, depression as well as feelings of grief, overwhelm, worry, frustration and irritability.

Women's Health

Acupuncture is becoming an increasingly popular method to help treat common women’s health issues by helping to balance hormones. As a result, acupuncture can be effective in treating conditions such as PMS/PMT, irregular or no periods, PCOS, endometriosis and menopausal symptoms. It can also be useful in assisting natural conception and is a safe treatment to have during pregnancy.

Physical Health

Acupuncture can stimulate various physiological responses that can benefit physical health. It is therefore beneficial in addressing a wide array of physical health issues, including digestive issues, sports injuries, back pain, migraines, skin conditions, to name a few.

Frequently asked questions

How many treatments will I need?

Every person and every case is different, so the frequency and length of your treatment will be discussed on an individual basis. Clients who are receiving treatment for migraines may see faster results than those being treated for PMS, for example, based on the frequency of each condition.

The response to acupuncture treatment may be felt immediately, but often a series of 4-5 weekly treatments will be required to begin to see benefits. Weekly treatments are recommended initially to kick-start the healing process.

What are your fees and availability?

Initial consultations last for 75 minutes and cost £80.

Follow up treatments last 60 minutes and cost £70.

Should you need to cancel or rearrange your appointment, please be sure to do so no later than 24 hours prior to your appointment.

Cancellations made 24 hours prior to your appointment will be fully refunded. Cancellations made after this time are non-refundable.

What happens during a treatment?

During an initial consultation we will explore your current signs and symptoms, as well as your medical history, tongue and pulse to come up with a diagnosis according to Traditional Chinese Medicine. A treatment will be provided following the consultation.

Follow up appointments include a check in with your current symptoms. The number of follow ups required will be discussed on an individual basis.

It is recommended that you wear loose and comfortable clothing. You may be asked to undress down to your underwear, but towels will be provided.

As an acupuncturist, it is my duty to ensure that your are informed and comfortable throughout each treatment.

Does acupuncture hurt?

In general, acupuncture is not meant to be painful, and I strive to ensure that the process is as comfortable for you as possible. The needles used in acupuncture are much thinner than those used for injections or blood tests.

However, individual pain tolerance and sensitivity vary, so it's possible that some people might find certain acupuncture points more sensitive than others. If you are a bit nervous on the day, do let me know and I will be sure to address any concerns you may have.
