I herniated a disc in my back and had tried several treatment types (including medication, osteopathy and an operation) when a couple of people close to me recommended trying acupuncture… Of course my main goal was simply to have a day where I wasn’t in excruciating pain, but Richard accomplished this and much more. It did take a few sessions to make major improvements (which was explained) but I cannot recommend his acupuncture highly enough – I now no longer need to take the painkillers and am back getting on with my life again! Other symptoms that I had had for years and never thought much of have disappeared and I feel better and more balanced than I have in a long time.

Hi, I’m Richard Agnew

I’m an acupuncturist in Faringdon and Fairford, specialising in pain and stress-related conditions, though I’ve worked with people for fertility, digestive problems and more. I have over a decade of experience as an acupuncturist and am a member of the British Acupuncture Council.

I’ve also trained in various martial arts and qigong, teaching for the past 8 years or so. Alongside treatment, I teach and write about health and work, applying behavioural science and Eastern wisdom to the challenges of living and working in the modern world.

Richard Agnew
Having tried every avenue to alleviate a long term health issue, 6 months ago I decided to try acupuncture. Richard is a kind, skilful, dedicated practitioner, who listens attentively and clearly communicates all his treatment decisions. He works with patience and a truly supportive, caring manner, providing additional insights into his practice and offering helpful dietary and exercise advice. I feel so lucky to have found him – I genuinely cannot recommend him highly enough.
KATE
Frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis) can be very uncomfortable for 12-18 months. Although it’s a self limiting condition, which does get better, I had some osteopathic treatment (using the Simeon Niel Asher Technique) followed by some acupuncture with Richard. As an osteopath myself, I knew how to treat the condition but I reached a plateau at the end. The acupuncture with Richard really helped my shoulder go from about 70% better to 100% better with no discomfort at all and I regained a full range of movement. The treatment was gentle and effective. I am delighted to be able to recommend Richard.
