PhD. BSc(Hons), Lic.Ac. M.B.Ac., Dip Tui Na
an ancient therapy for a modern world
Chinese Medicine is the oldest, continually practiced, professional and literate medicine in the world. The written literature for this medical system stretches back 2500 years. Its effectiveness has stood the test of time, and current clinical trials consitently prove its effectiveness; so much so that it has been accepted by Western Medicine, and was recommended by the House of Lords to be made part of the NHS.
Holism is the heart of Chinese Medicine: it views the body, the mind and the spirit as one. Anne-Sophie will seek to treat you as a person and get to the root od the disease, rather than just treat your illness.
Anne-Sophie's initial PhD was in immunology. She integrates years of experience in the Western medical field with her passion for Chinese Medicine to truly tailor the treatment to your situation and needs. This can include Acupuncture, TuiNa therapeutic massage, Chinese Nutritional therapy and lifestyle advice.
In her Kensal Green practice, Anne-Sophie has been able to help a lot of patients with gynecology, fertility, IVF, obstetrics problems, musculo-skeletal conditions, as well as a variety of other conditions. As Chinese Medicine seeks the patterns linking all your symptoms, as the main issue gets better, so does all the other problems you thought were unrelated.

How does it work?
The theory behind it states that energy lines or meridians circulate around the body, at the surface as well as through the organs, These meridians carry our life energy or Qi around. When the flow of Qi is impaired, imbalances and ill health occur. Many factors can block the proper circulation of Qi: emotional upset, physical trauma, poor diet, overwork to name a few. Blocked energy can manifest itself as pain, but also feeling of heat, cold , numbness.
Once the practitioner has determined the underlying causes linking all your signs and symptoms, very fine needles are inserted to unblock the meridians and restore your natural balance.
Although modern research is in its infancy, it shows that acupuncture can affect most of our body's systems: for instance, it stimulates the nervous system, hormone outputs and immune system function. One of its best documented effects is the stimulation of endorphin productions, to decrease pain threshold.
