I will guide you through a thorough consultation, together with pulse diagnosis and assessment of your tongue. This allows me to identify your individual underlying patterns of disharmony and design a personalised treatment plan. Using this plan, I insert very fine needles to stimulate your body’s own healing response, helping to restore a natural balance.

Clinical research continues to demonstrate the effectiveness of traditional acupuncture in treating a wide range of conditions. Acupuncture is as much about the maintenance of health as the management of disease, and the benefits frequently go beyond relieving one particular condition. Many people find that it can also lead to an enhanced sense of overall wellbeing and vitality.

Acupuncture is a system of healing based on over 2,500 years of development and refinement in the Far East. According to traditional Chinese philosophy, our health is dependent on the body’s motivating energy – known as qi – moving in a smooth and balanced way through a series of meridians (channels) beneath the skin. The flow of qi can be disturbed by many physical, mental and emotional factors.

 I have been receiving acupuncture periodically for 20 years to treat specific symptoms and as a part of a balanced, preventative approach to my overall well-being. Being in the industry, I have received treatment from a variety of experienced, gifted and adept practitioners. My experience with Ania is every bit as effective and enjoyable as any I have had. Her warm manner, thorough interview and listening skills and innate ability to accurately diagnose and treat all combine to create a comprehensive healing and balancing environment for the client. I would unhesitatingly recommend her acupuncture services.

 I fully recommend my experience of acupuncture with Ania, she has a warm professional manner and I trust implicitly that she is committed to my wellbeing and recovery. I have found acupuncture to be an important contributing factor to my recovery from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome / M.E.

I had been suffering for months with a strained muscle, which over time turned into a constant painful spasm that limited my movement. I had tried several different types of treatment with no joy. I went to see Ania for a deep tissue massage but after the first consultation, Ania thought that acupuncture would probably be more suitable. And she was right! Just after the first treatment I felt the muscle had started releasing. After three sessions the spasm had gone and I could start the process of recovering the full range of motion, which I now have!  Ania’s holistic approach to the body gives her the extraordinary strength of addressing an issue with a range of different techniques for the best results. And she always makes you feel welcome and in the right place.

 Ania has been working on my heart palpitations and after a few months of seeing her every fortnight, I’m happy to say they have reduced by about 80%. I always look forward to my visits: Ania is deeply kind; a wonderful mix of gentleness, positivity and quiet determination as well as having great depths of intuition and knowledge. She brings all of these to her practice with steadfast encouragement and lightness of touch. She is always reassuring in the assiduous and precise way she places her needles and with her obvious resolution to root out the source of a problem – whilst all the time being absolutely allowing and approachable and constantly checking one’s comfort and reaction. I have no hesitation in recommending her most earnestly.

Treatments with Ania helped me get through a time in my life when I was suffering from back pain and was working long hours. Acupuncture gave me pain relief that usually lasted a day or two and enabled me to continue to work. I also felt calmed and cared for by the process and would use it as an adjunct for other standard medical treatments again. For example, I recently suggested to my husband that he saw Ania to help him deal with treatment side effects for a serious condition. Ania listens very well and has a lovely gentle, calm manner, which puts you at ease in and of itself. I liked the way that she was prepared to answer my questions about acupuncture as we went along. I felt she was trustworthy.

 Ania is an excellent acupuncturist, mastering different techniques. She is very professional and takes good care of her patients. Sessions have been very helpful to me and have quickly had good effects on my digestive problems. I feel much better now! I recommend her to anybody willing to start acupuncture treatments. Do not hesitate: you will be in good hands! 

Sarah, Homeopath, 43

Acupuncture with Ania really helped me when I had become very run down and overtired with two small children and a partner travelling abroad a lot. The acupuncture sessions helped me to recharge myself and build up my energy levels again, as well as bring back a sense of joy to my life, having felt everything was a bit of a slog. Ania creates a wonderful, calming, therapeutic space in which to unwind and replenish.

Ania has treated me on several occasions, primarily for acupuncture. I have always left a treatment feeling refreshed, relaxed and more optimistic than when I arrived. On my first appointment with her I very quickly felt at ease, as her manner is friendly and welcoming. Of necessity, she spent some time finding out personal details in order to be able to treat me holistically, but her manner was very professional and the questioning was subtle and carefully worded. During the treatment she always told me exactly what she was going to do next and I felt relaxed and confident throughout.
