Ms Xing Chang Si Tu MBAcC & MRCHM
Growing up in a family that had two famous professors of acupuncture and herbal medicine in China, I have always been fascinated by my uncles’ magical skills and vast knowledge. I was also inspired by their patients’ smiles and gratitude. Following their footsteps, and cherishing their invaluable expertise, to make people healthier was my childhood dream and thankfully it has progressed to a career lasting 30 years.
After coming to London, I have worked at various clinics in central London as an acupuncturist & Chinese herbalist, and have successfully helped a lot of patients with stress related problems, pain relief (muscular, joint and back pain), digestion complaints and women’s health issues including fertility. I was named as one of the best Chinese Medicine practitioner at Evening Standard Magazine in March 2000.
I constantly update my knowledge on Chinese medicine as well as developments in modern medicine, especially in the fertility field where I can assist patients with IVF treatments and their success rates.
Treatments are given according to an individual’s condition, aiming at the root cause as well as the symptoms. To maximize effectiveness of treatments, moxa and cupping may be used based on conditions and also the patients' preference. For people who are fearful of needles, thinner needle and a very gentle technique would be applied.
At the last 10 minutes of the session, I may do acupressure (a form of massge) for the purposes of relaxation and enhancing the impact of the treatment.
Life style and nutritional advice will be offered if it is relevant.
