Relief from pain or stress

How I can help you

I use tui na deep tissue massage to release muscular tension and acupuncture to relieve pain. Pain in this context can mean almost any discomfort that you experience, physical or emotional.

These two techniques have been used to treat a huge range of complaints throughout the body for thousands of years; they are still an integrated part of the modern Chinese health system and are increasingly used in the West by traditional and modern medical practitioners.

As part of deep tissue massage and acupuncture, I use dry and sliding cupping as well as other techniques. Read more about cupping here.

A recent study lists acupuncture as having an effect on 117 different conditions: Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association research.

I give positive lifestyle advice, including indications for diet and exercise.

I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council. They provide fact sheets showing the latest research on acupuncture use for a whole range of conditions; click here to read more. As a member of the British Acupuncture Council, Westfield and a number of other health insurance schemes will pay for a proportion of treatment costs.

The below is a summary of my practices, and the are further details throughout my website. If you have any questions about specific conditions, please call me on 07538 065665 or send an email to info@acupunctureandmassage.net. I am always happy to help; please read my testimonials page if you would like to read some accounts from Sheffielders I have treated.

Tui Na: Chinese deep tissue massage


Tui na: Chinese deep tissue massage is a treatment for musculo-skeletal and circulatory health. I use Tui na for all sorts of problems, including those that you might seek sports massage, other styles of deep tissue massage, holistic massage or any other remedial therapeutic massage for: all types of pain, in the muscles, back, hips, neck or limbs. If the spine is implicated, relieving tension in the soft tissues can allow it to re-establish correct structure.

As well as helping musculo-skeletal health, improving the circulation in muscles and soft tissues can have an important effect on headaches, stress and other problems such as insomnia or digestive issues. These problems are in my experience usually accompanied by tension in the neck, shoulders, lower back or other parts of the body.

Massage is a fantastic tool because you take it with you everywhere you go. I go to events throughout the year in Sheffield to raise awareness of Tui na massage and its benefits. Have a look at my Tui Na page if you would like to read more, or see any pictures and videos illustrating techniques.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture stimulates your circulation to reduce pain. It has been shown to stimulate the body to produce natural chemicals which enhance healing. Its simplicity makes it highly versatile, and useful in lots of different situations.

The World Health Organisation have published a review and analysis of reports on controlled trials which found acupuncture to be effective for a wide range of conditions.

The channels are my guide to the most appropriate needling locations, depending on presenting symptoms.

Acupuncture works brilliantly with tui na massage, and the two can be used together. Come and find out how much they can benefit you!

Eat well

I always do my best to offer advice as to any changes you can make to your diet and exercise regimes to help you to be healthier, or remedy illness. Diet and exercise are vital elements of health and will always be part of my initial consultation. I might ask you to complete a food diary for a week in order to get a good overview of when and how you eat.

My latest blog post gives my thoughts about healthy diet and exercise in a little more detail.



Tai Chi


I teach Wu Tai Chi as taught by Sifu Eddie Wu Kwong Yu. The below is a video of the Wu 108 form, performed by a student of a disciple of Wu Chian Chuan, credited as the founder of the Wu style. For details of my classes please click here.

This is a summary of my practices; for further details, please read my website. If you have any questions about specific conditions, please call me on 07538 065665 or send me an email. I am always happy to help. Chinese medicine can often propose simple solutions which may not be presented in traditional Western medicines.

I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council and adhere to their high standards of practice and ongoing professional training.

As a Sheffield massage therapist and acupuncturist, I aim to constantly refine my skills and knowledge, to help as much as I can to relieve pain and discomfort in whatever form it appears.
