Lucie Trinephi - Japanese acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine in East London

About me

My 10 year clinical experience includes the Pain Management at the Royal Free and Whittington hospitals; and the Crime Reductions Initiatives, a charity organisation that gives support to homeless people. Over the years I have deepened my understanding about the treatments of musculoskeletal pains, and different aspects of mental issues. I am able to help various health conditions.

I now specialise in the Toyohari style of Japanese acupuncture and Jing Fang herbal medicine.

The Toyohari style from Japanese acupuncture comes from a lineage of blind acupuncturists. It’s the most gentle style of acupuncture. There is no insertion involved. The needle is used as a conductor of subtle energies. The flows of channels are tuned into harmony. Moxibustion and other treatment modalities are often added during a Toyohari session. Toyohari suits the most sensitive.

Jing Fang herbal medicine is the six syndrome classic system of Zhang Zhong Jing, a renowned herbalist from the Han Dynasty in China about 150-219 AD. The classical approach of the Shang Han Lun (Treatise on Cold Damage) and Jin Gui Yao Lue (Prescriptions of the Golden Cabinet) differentiates symptoms according to syndromes.  Treatment of disease is understood from the intricate layers that make the pattern. The diagnosis gives a clear picture of the pattern to which a formula is prescribed.

I have expertise in the following therapies:

– Acupuncture works efficiently to assist with acute and chronic pain, general health maintenance and disease prevention. An acupuncture session can combine cupping, moxa, guasha and massage depending on your condition.

– Facial rejuvenation acupuncture can slow down the ageing process by improving your overall health.

– Chinese herbal medicine has a deep knowledge of their healing effects and therefore can provide effective treatment for a wide range of health disorders from disease prevention to severe, acute and chronic conditions.

– Acupressure and Massage: the stimulation of acupressure points can relieve musculoskeletal pain, stiffness like arthritis and sciatica, and help to relax body and mind. Massage activates the healing response by promoting circulation.

You will enjoy being cared for in a safe, clean, relaxing and rejuvenating atmosphere.
