** Update**


The first week of January 2021 comes to an end and once again the UK is plunged into another Lock-down.

We want to take this time to reassure everyone, that as Members of the British Acupuncture Association (BAA) we as traditional Chinese acupuncturists have full permission to continue to work throughout this lock-down to provide medical/ emergency healthcare related treatments.
The BAA guidelines meet the requirements of HSE, NHS, PHE as well as recommendations from local authorities.

Permission was granted and approved by Public Health England directly for all organisations under the British Acupuncture Federation, of which my governing body is a member of.

Having being fully assessed and subsequently told by PHE, we are now classed as group one of therapists and clinicians, alongside physiotherapists and chiropractors, it is therefore important that we remain open to provide secondary healthcare services to you, the public.

 We will be providing Medical & Emergency treatments ONLY.

  • Fertility  
  • IVF 
  • Pregnancy Support if high risk due to health related complications.
  • Time based treatments that keep patients within a safe health bracket.
  • Anyone in Pain
  • Mental health support for those who are vulnerable.
  • Patients with ongoing health issues, that left untreated may cause a relapse to their health.

Clinic is open at reduced hours with practitioners working allotted days to further reduce time spent in practice.
Telephone consultations are now provided prior to appointments, individual risk assessments will be taken and patients will have to complete a Covid 19 health checklist and provide consent before treatment can go ahead.

Please don't hesitate to contact us to discuss further, we are here and happy to support you in any way that we can.

We would like to take this time to say thank you for your continued support and we will endeavor to keep you up to date with all the relevant developments other the coming weeks.
