Annabel's interest in acupuncture came about after experiencing the effect of five element acupuncture treatment. She was so intrigued about this ancient practice of medicine that she made the decision to study at the renowned College of Integrated Chinese Medicine.
Annabel integrates two styles of acupuncture into her practice, Five Element Constitutional Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The Five Element style lends itself well to more chronic complaints but sometimes it is necessary to treat more acute problems with TCM. Having these two styles has given Annabel a unique perspective as a health professional. She offers patients both a solution to their immediate problems but also has the ability to treat on a more deeper, holistic level, enabling her to get to the source of the problem. Thus she treats more than just the obvious symptoms, but the underlying cause of illness.
Annabel treats a wide range of emotional and physical complaints and each treatment is tailored to the individual. She has a special interest in fertility, both natural and assisted for female and males, pregnancy support (pre and postnatal) and gynaecological issues (such as PCOS, Endometriosis, and menstrual irregularities). She has completed a Diploma in Gynaecology and Obstetrics and is an associate of The Women's Natural Health Practice. She is also a member of the London Acupuncture Childbirth Team (ACT).
In addition, she deals with emotional complaints, digestive issues, musculoskeletal conditions, headaches, detoxification, addiction, tiredness, sleeping problems, weight loss and skin complaints.
Annabel can be available for a 15 minute telephone consultation if you would like to find out more how acupuncture might help you.
