WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO

Our Approach

We’ve been professional Acupuncturists since 2001.  We practice an integrated approach to health, which means using traditional techniques from Chinese medicine and modern scientific understanding to keep ourselves and our patients healthy.  We are happy to work alongside Doctors and other therapists (such as Osteopaths, Physiotherapists, Personal Trainers etc.) to gain maximum effect and the best results possible for patients. 


Important in our approach to treating patients is our consideration of their overall wellbeing.  This means treating everybody as an individual and tailoring treatments specific to their current health, looking at and treating them as a whole; treating their physical, mental and emotional health.  In practice this may mean if two people arrive in the clinic with similar shoulder complaints, they can be treated very differently depending on their complete picture of health and any other health issues they may present.

 
 

MIR ALI

I’ve been learning about the human body, medicine and martial arts since I was a child, born into a family where both sides had medics and traditional medicine practitioners. Below is an outline of some of my recent professional education.

ACUPUNCTURE LICENTIATE

A three year degree level course at The London College of Traditional Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine which taught the foundations of Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture at undergraduate level.  After the course I attended a three week clinical observation and practise at Zhejiang Hospital, Hangzhou, China, before moving into private practice in the UK.

Continuing education, practise and internship as a senior practitioner with The Association of Traditional Studies; post graduate level education in the areas of Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine, Bodywork, Chinese Philosophy and Daoyin.
