Ian uses an holistic approach to treatment based on the practice of both Five Element Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). As a member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC), Ian follows the BAcC Codes of Ethics, Safe Practice and Professional Conduct. Acupuncture can treat a large number of problems. It treats the root cause of a condition rather than specific symptoms in isolation and in so doing it can be effective for a wide range of conditions.Acupuncture sets out to correct any imbalance in the energy of a person. The aim is to restore the energy to a natural balance and flow and to re-establish its rhythm with the natural cycles. Harmony and equilibrium are then re-established within the body, within the mind, within the spirit of the person, and between the person and the environment.
