AcupunctureAltair de Almeida
Traditional Acupuncture has been used for over 5000 years to treat a vast array of diseases. It also aims to bring people into optimum health, meaning a bright and joyful attitude to Life and a healthy body, mind and spirit.
It is so effective because it has 8 different systems of diagnosis. I check pulses, tongue, abdominal palpation to name a few. These 8 cross checked diagnostic systems make Acupuncture the most sophisticated Holistic healing system ever created.
I specialise in 5 Element Acupuncture, which treats the whole person, not just symptoms. We identify the underlying ‘Causative Factor’ (CF) that is established by the age of 7, and lasts your life long. As I treat the CF, many other ailments like digestion, sleep also improve, apart from the main presenting problem.
Conditions I have treated
Many people come to Acupuncture for help with a specific symptom or condition, for example: anxiety states, arthritis, asthma, back pain, circulatory problems, depression, facial paralysis, fibrositis, high blood pressure, indeterminate aches and pains, infertility, menstrual problems, migraines, rheumatism, sciatica, skin conditions or ulcers. Extensive practice and worldwide research has shown Acupuncture’s effectiveness in helping these and many other conditions.
I am passionate about helping people be the best that they can be. I have been immersed in Holistic Medicine for over 40 years. Licentiate in Acupuncture, Member of the British Acupuncture Council for over 20-years, now member of FHT (Federation of Holistic Therapists).
The Chinese diagnosis to identify the ‘Causative Factor’ (see above) lasts about two hours. Cost : £46 per hour.
