Acupuncture and your wellbeing 

Laura is the acupuncturist at our. Waterloo centre. In addition to acupuncture, Laura practises Tui Na Chinese medical massage and has taught one to one and group Tai chi classes for over twenty years. 

Her patients come for acupuncture and tui na massage and movement therapy for a range of reasons. Many people find these treatments a powerful complement to western medicine and a vital component of their wellbeing programs. 

Types of problems which acupuncture can help with

The idea behind these treatments is to improve harmony within the body and mind to prevent minor ailments from becoming major ones, speed up the healing process, and keep people in good working order. In Chinese medicine, the emphasis is on prevention before cure.

In addition to preventative self-care treatments, our patients also come for a multitude of bodywork treatments, including:

  • Lower back pain
  • Sciatica
  • Neck and shoulder tension
  • IBS
  • Constipation
  • Dizziness
  • To improve mobility
  • To manage pain
  • Headaches
  • Temperature fluctuations
  • Fertility

Laura is at the Waterloo centre on Tuesdays and Fridays and also at our Covent Garden centre on Mondays and Wednesdays . 

Acupuncture and stress

Some of our patients also find it helpful to use acupuncture in conjunction with our talking therapies. For example, people feeling stressed, anxious, going through grief, making major life decisions, overcoming addictions, handling competing demands at home and work find that a combination of talking and physical therapies works for them. Feeling listened to, being attended to, receiving treatment from a kind-hearted and experienced practitioner and in a relaxing setting is all part of the healing process.

Where to find us

Our Waterloo acupuncture therapy business is on the Colombo centre's top floor, 34 Colombo street SE18DP. We have four beautiful treatment rooms, each with views of the local park. The rooms have been used for healing since 2004.
