The Whole Health Approach
True health is so much more than just an absence of symptoms. We use a combination of acupuncture, nutrition, stress management and exercise to help you on the road to greater vitality and health.
Acupuncture uses very thin sterile needles to stimulate the body’s natural healing mechanisms.
Good nutrition is the cornerstone of good health, if you want to be healthy, you have to eat healthily – there is no other option!
Stress, of many types, can be at the root of many health conditions. Learning to manage and control stress is a key to obtaining good health and vitality.

“Acupuncture was recommended by the fertility consultant at the hospital for my husband for impaired sperm function and I decided that it may be of benefit to me after my hormone levels were showing fertility levels that should be seen in a female 10 years senior to my age. Keith did a thorough assessment of both my medical history and general well being and lifestyle and showed a confidence and knowledge in his diagnosis. This put me at ease that the treatment would be of great benefit to me. After starting acupuncture treatment I could feel immediate positive effects on my hormone levels during my cycle as well as additional benefits of reduced stress levels and better sleep patterns. Amazingly after treatment throughout one menstrual cycle I fell pregnant. I believe that the acupuncture had a definite place in contributing to my successful conception. I would recommend treatment as part of a holistic approach to fertility and healthy pregnancy”
“I only had two sessions with Keith and I feel so much better now. I used to suffer from migraine attacks nearly twice a week but now I had been free of pain for nearly 14 days and did not take pain killers. I also following the low carb diet which was recomended by Keith. After I started my diet I have more energy and not feeling sleepy and tired. Thanks Keith for your help.”
“I have always been an active runner to stay healthy which has always been fairly vigorous on my body as I have gotten older. My usual fix was through deep tissue massages and really had never given acupuncture a go before however massages were not fixing my lower back issue. I went to see Keith as the Oriental Medicine Practice and the difference in how I was feeling is Night and Day!
My back is feeling good as new, I am running my 10km a day again without any pain. Thank you Keith, I will be recommending you to others!”
“The acupuncture treatment I received from Keith has changed my life! I can now walk without pain, I have so much more energy and my moods have improved. My family can hardly believe I’m the same person I was 6 months ago. I just wish I had discovered acupuncture before.”
“I have been suffering from severe migraines for the last 15 years, I have been to countless doctors and consultants, and taken any and every medication they can offer, with no help. After just 2 acupuncture treatments I was free of pain for 4 days, the longest I’ve been pain free in 15 years! After 3 months of regular treatments, and some changes to my diet and lifestyle I am no longer experiencing any pain at all. A most amazing and successful treatment. Thank you.”
“After being in a serious car crash I thought I wasn’t going to be able to work for a few weeks… A couple of sessions with Keith and I can start walking around well enough now for work.”
“I have found Keith to be a knowledgeable and skilled practitioner. I had not tried acupuncture before and I am pleased with the results. I was suffering badly from fatigue and some other problems whose cause had not been completely diagnosed, despite determined efforts by my very helpful GP. Through treatment by acupuncture my condition has improved and I find regular treatment beneficial.”
“I came to see Keith during my last pregnancy as I was 10 days overdue and the hospital were keen to induce me, I really didn’t want to be induced using drugs and had heard that acupuncture was a good natural alternative. I saw Keith at 12.30pm, my waters broke at midnight and I had delivered a beautiful healthy girl by 5am, and was home in time for breakfast! Much better than using lots of drugs and chemicals. I would recommend acupuncture to anyone in my position.”
“I have had 10 sessions of chemo, after which I experienced aches and pain as well as the tiredness. Since starting acupuncture in January I have had a further 2 rounds of chemo but my energy levels have increased and the side effects have almost diminished. I may well have ceased my treatment if it wasn’t for the acupuncture making it lot more bearable.”
“Several friends had recommended acupuncture to me as a complimentary therapy but I was very nervous about the whole needle issue and was also a little sceptical about the benefits. I had been half heartedly looking for a practitioner for some time when I found your website and I was extremely impressed with the information you had on your site, especially the details around how acupuncture can help with fertility and stress issues. I was able to get an appointment to see you quickly and I immediately felt I’d made a good choice when I came to the clinic. You were extremely informed and very thorough in your initial consultation and you quickly drilled down through the issues to highlight a combination of lifestyle and practical changes I could make to lead a more stress free life. You took a great deal of time to explain the benefits of acupuncture in layman’s terms and I found this particularly helpful. You looked at me as a whole person and this was especially valuable as you offered advice on small, practical changes I could make to help me achieve my goals. I didn’t feel at any point that drastic or unachievable recommendations were being offered. This gave me the confidence to say bring on the needles and your calm, reassuring manner made this a breeze. My image of large knitting needle type implements couldn’t have been more ill-founded and I have found the actual treatment sessions to be extremely gentle with just a mild sensation.”
“I’ve had knee pain for years after damaging them playing sport and have been taking high levels of pain medication to cope through the day. The only option the hospital has offered me is knee replacement surgery. After 8 weeks of acupuncture at The Oriental Medicine Practice I have stopped all medication and I’m clear of all pain.”
“I had been in a lot of pain following a car accident, I had received a course of physiotherapy, I was having chiropractic treatment twice a week, and was taking more pain killers than I care to count. None of these treatments helped. In desperation I tried acupuncture at The Oriental Medicine Practice and within just a few treatments I was pain free.”
“It completely worked for me. I had a skin condition , Urticaria . I had itchy skin and had to take Certirizine tablets (antihistamine) on a regular / daily basis for over 9 years. After the first tretment , I didnt and haven’t taken any since , itching has gone. What more can I say , except . thank you Keith , I can recommend you wholeheartedly to anyone with a similar problem.”
