I would love to see if I can help you.

Over the past ten years I’ve treated hundreds of people with painful conditions, from simple musculoskeletal injuries to complex and chronic internal conditions. Many of them had tried everything else with little or no success. Even so, I’ve been able to help the vast majority reduce or eliminate their pain using acupuncture alongside other techniques such as tui na massage and cupping.

What acupuncture can offer is a different way of understanding the body, and a natural, drug-free approach to treatment. I see acupuncture as complementary to conventional medical care, but believe that (except in emergencies) it’s best to try gentler and less invasive treatment options first before resorting to strong medications or surgery.

Usually there are postural, dietary or other lifestyle factors involved, and I will often make suggestions, tailored to you according to your symptoms, diagnosis and circumstances. I also teach Qigong (Chinese health exercises, similar to tai chi) which can help speed your healing process.

“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.”


“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.”


“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.”

“I have suffered with very heavy periods and period pain for 13 years and over the few years they have been increasingly worse. After just 3 Acupunture sessions with Richard he has reduced the bleeding from 9 – 16 days to 3 days and with no pain killers. As a complete believer in what I call modern medicine this is a game changer. I can not recommend or thank Richard enough. A true ‘A’ class professional, takes all your history and listens to what you have to say and most of all how you are feeling. Thank you and I will be keeping this up.”


“I am so grateful for the treatment I received which has been very successful. I was in a great deal of pain and had tried everything under the sun to stop it, finally turning to Richard. His professional approach and obvious knowledge put my mind at rest immediately and his positive attitude to my problem was a major force in my rehabilitation. I would have no hesitation in recommending him.”
