Acupuncture has been practiced in eastern countries for 2,500 years. It is a traditional form of Chinese Medicine based on the theory that our body’s motivating force (Chi) moves through a network of channels that run beneath the skin and that illness arises due to blockages in the energy flow.
Acupuncturists insert fine needles into points along the channels in order to “re-balance the body’s energy”, with the aim to restore health.
Treatment may also include the use of Moxibustion or infrared heat lamps.

We specialise in a range of Acupuncture therapies including Dr.Tan Balancing Acupuncture, Tung’s Acupuncture and Bioresonance Bicom therapy.
Dr Tan Balancing Acupuncture is famous by its quick and effective results, by balancing body systems it is best suitable for regulating hormonal disorders (gynaecological problems like painful period, PMS, menopausal symptoms, assisting in IVF treatment), digestion system (IBS, constipation, diarrhoea, Crohn’s disease, etc.) stress related issues and many more.
Tung’s Acupuncture is a painless, quick and clinically effective Acupuncture style that requires less needles. Fewer treatments are needed if the problem is acute and it is successful in treating many conditions including: pain (of any cause and location), neuro-musculoskeletal disorders, internal medicine problems (allergies, arthritis, asthma, Bell’s palsy, acne, common cold and flu, bronchitis, IBS, high blood pressure, loss of hearing, tinnitus, gynaecological issues, etc) with just a few needles
I originally trained in western medicine, completing five years at medical school in Ukraine. However during my studies I became frustrated with idea that I might know lots of information about how the body works and yet still not be able to bring a fully rounded (physical and emotional) therapeutic effect to my future patients.
I came to this realisation after observing patients being treated in hospital during my training. My father had taught me about herbal and folk medicine as a child and I realised that I needed a more holistic approach to health, that cares for all aspects of our being, not just the physical.
My education in alternative medicine started from taking few years of apprenticeship in Acupuncture with Dr. Sun-Chen-Lee, M.D. (Lviv, Ukraine) while still studying Internal Medicine at Medical School. Later I got my degree in TCM: Acupuncture at the Westminster University, London, followed by a post graduate degree in Chinese Herbal Medicine.
Later I took a trip to China where I had amazing opportunity to observe and learn from Dr Fen (Hangzhou, China) who has been practising Nine Palaces Acupuncture style for all his life. That experience opened for me a new dimension in understanding main pillars of Chinese medicine.
Learning with Dr. Tan, Balance Acupuncture was a break through in increasing clinical results in my practice from day one I have started applying his style. Further curiosity led me to find Master Tung Acupuncture style. I have great privilege to learn it from direct and only Tibetan disciple of Master Tung, Dachen Palden (now Dr. Palden Carson, M.D.) who is also an editor and translator of original and only book written by Master Tung, and a president of the World Tung’s Acupuncture Association.
