Welcome To The Oriental Medicine Practice –

Traditional Acupuncture For Modern Ills.

Are you looking for acupuncture or natural health treatment in Bristol? Are you looking for someone to help you improve your health, vitality and general sense of well-being?

Perhaps you’ve been putting up with a health condition for some time, and maybe you have tried medication, or other therapies, doing everything you can think of that will improve your health, and you’re still having a hard time trying to figure out why it isn’t working.

Here, at The Oriental Medicine Practice, in Bristol, we have observed over the last 25 years, that if you give yourself the right conditions: healthy and nutritious diet, appropriate exercise, relaxation, and non-invasive treatments such as acupuncture, shiatsu, Bowen or nutritional therapies, you will give your body the opportunity for it’s own natural healing powers to start working to take you to a state of health and recovery.

With over 50 years of combined experience between us, we are still astounded at the ability of the human body to recover, often after years of abuse. Naturally we are not implying that it is possible to recover from every condition using natural therapies, sometimes a more intensive approach is required and it is necessary to use pharmaceutical medication and / or surgery. But for those conditions that do not require this level of intervention, natural therapies, that do not produce negative side effects, can often produce results that can seem miraculous.

The aim of the treatment you receive from our practice is not only to help alleviate your suffering and symptoms, but to deal with the root cause of the problem so that you will not have to experience them again.

Acupuncture Bristol


Acupuncture has been used successfully for thousands of years to help a wide range of conditions. Modern research is starting to understand how acupuncture works and why it can be so effective.


Shiatsu, a style of traditional Japanese massage, has a history of thousands of years. It is deeply relaxing, and can be especially helpful for any stress related conditions, as well as musculo-skeletal pain or discomfort.

Bowen Therapy

Bowen Therapy is a soft tissue remedial therapy, where the practitioner uses fingers or thumbs to move over muscle, ligament tendon and fascia in various parts of the body.

Food Intolerance Testing

The food we eat can have a massive influence on our health, for good or bad. Not only can the obvious poor quality foods have a negative effect on our health, not so obvious food intolerances can also play a major role

The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, answered:

“Man.. Be cause he sacrifices his health in order to make money.
Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.
And then, he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”

Traditional Treatment For The Modern World

The history of acupuncture is over 7,000 years old, and is still effective for modern ills.
