Andrew Jones Tui Na Massage and Acupuncture
828a Ecclesall Road
Acupuncture and tui na medical massage are healing methods that have been refined over millennia. They are used in Chinese hospitals, alongside Western treatments. Many choose them over Western medicine.
What can I treat?
Chinese medicine is used for a wide variety of conditions and types of pain and discomfort, acute or chronic. I commonly see all kinds of musculo-skeletal pain, headaches, digestive complaints, and anxiety and stress among other things.
I often see people who have had a range of treatments before coming to Chinese medicine. The Chinese medical approach gives a fresh take on what you are experiencing, from a broader perspective, a view of you as a person and how you have come to this point, and offers new ways to resolve your pain or discomfort.
Treating Different Conditions: Fact sheets
The British Acupuncture Council, of which I'm a member, have created some great fact sheets to give details of the treatment of different conditions with acupuncture. These fact sheets refer to acupuncture, but bear in mind that medical massage uses the same principles and with the right understanding can help for many of the same things. If you are not sure, get in touch with me to find out. I offer free 15 minute consultations if you want to discuss anything you're considering treatment for.
Research fact sheets are available from: http://www.acupuncture.org.uk/category/a-to-z-of-conditions/a-to-z-of-conditions.html
Can I use my health insurance?
As a British Acupuncture Council acupuncturist, many health insurance schemes will pay for my acupuncture treatments, with an appropriate referral. I often combine tui na massage and acupuncture, which could also qualify. Please ask me for further details if this interests you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a BSc in Acupuncture and a diploma in Tui na massage. I have trained Tai Chi for many years and see it as vital to the development of sensitivity and the application of the therapies I practise.
I travelled to China in 2010 with TuinaUK to study in Zhejiang Hospital in Hangzhou. It was an honour to meet the doctors and nurses there and see their level of skill, to learn from and treat alongside them. It is hard to overestimate the level of skill and understanding that exists in China, and the value of coming into contact with and sharing it.
We were not only welcomed by the hospital but the community. I even gave a tai chi demo to local residents and received a piece from a local calligrapher.
I have trained in acupuncture and bodywork with Andrew Nugent-Head, who has dedicated his life to documenting medical knowledge from pre-Communist China. This has enhanced my sensitivity and ability to use acupuncture immensely.
I have experience of volunteering in the NHS at the Gateway clinic for six months and have experience of treating a wide range of conditions.
I want to promote awareness and understanding of physical and mental health through the framework of Chinese medicine. Its roots are in a time before instrumentation, and it is founded on awareness yet is complete and comprehensive.
