Rahul is a highly experienced acupuncture practitioner and also specialises in Chinese herbal medicine.
Our patients come for acupuncture, tui na massage, Chinese medicine and movement therapy for many different reasons. Many people find these treatments a powerful compliment to western medicine and a vital component of their wellbeing programs. The idea behind these treatments is improve harmony within the body and mind as a way to prevent minor ailments becoming major ones, to speed up the healing process and also to keep people in good working order. In Chinese medicine emphasis is placed 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
- Neck and shoulder tension
- To improve mobility
- To manage pain
- Temperature fluctuations
Some of our patients also find it useful to use acupuncture in conjunction with our talking therapies. For example people feeling stressed, anxious, going through bereavement, 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.
Our Waterloo acupuncture therapy business is on the top floor of the Colombo centre, 34 Colombo street SE18DP. We have four beautiful treatment rooms each with views of the local park.
