“The partial becomes complete;
the crooked, straight;
the empty, full;
the worn out, new.”
― Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching
Acupuncture is an ancient system of maintaining and re-establishing health and well being. It can be used for the alleviation of many conditions of dis-ease as well as preventative medicine.
The diagnostic tools of acupuncture enable us to detect weaknesses in the system even before they become a physical problem and we are thus often able to prevent conditions from occurring or worsening.
Acupuncture can be helpful for people of any age.
I always follow an individual approach, treating each person according to their strengths and weaknesses in re-establishing balance within the body and mind.
After so many years of practise, I am still in awe of the never ending possibilities that acupuncture offers to help people, it is true magic!
A lot of current research is being done to connect this timeless knowledge of natural medicine to our modern world. For a current list of health conditions that have been proven to respond well to acupuncture, please see this page by the World Health organisation.

What people have said...
I am a 71 year old woman normally in good health, although I have suffered with my nerves for most of my life.
I was living at home with my parents and when I was 43 my mother died suddenly. Two years later my father had a heart attack followed by slowly progressive vascular dementia. It was at this time that I started to have intermittent tinnitus and hearing loss. For the next 12 years I struggled to care for my father; after his death the hearing loss gradually worsened. This situation was particularly difficult for me as before this I had always had extremely acute hearing.
At the beginning of the year 2018 I started to become desperate. The deafness was isolating and when I went out people would speak to me and think I was ignoring them but I just couldn't hear. So I decided to try Acupuncture. I started my treatments with Kirsten in the middle of March.
For me, Acupuncture works on many levels. It is a truly holistic treatment working on the mind, body and spirit and as a result I am feeling much fitter and healthier and find that I am much calmer and more relaxed. I am happy to say that at the end of June the hearing in my left ear came back totally and the tinnitus is gone. I still have some hearing loss in my right ear. To me this is nothing short of a miracle and I will always be so grateful to Kirsten for what she has done for me. I am now getting back the confidence which I lost as a result of my deafness. I am continuing to see Kirsten to retain my health and vitality.

I have had Acupuncture for over 3 years now and have found it helps with my movement. I have had a major stroke and without Acupuncture I would suffer from bad seizures. I would highly recommend Acupuncture as an alternative treatment.
