Traditional acupuncture is a part of Chinese medicine, one of the longest established forms of healthcare in the world. Chinese medicine has a very precise and coherent understanding of health encompassing both its physical and mental / emotional aspects. The focus of treatment is on the individual as a whole rather than solely on the problem or illness in isolation and all aspects of health are taken into consideration.

An acupuncturist combines information from the symptoms, general health and health history, together with subtle diagnostic techniques such as feeling the pulse and observing the tongue, to identify the nature of the imbalance underlying a problem. Acupuncture points that redress the particular imbalance are then selected and stimulated using very fine needles.

Acupuncture is a safe, and usually painless treatment which has been recognised by the World Health Organisation as effective for a variety of conditions and is suitable for people of all ages, from babies to the elderly. People may come for acupuncture to help relieve pain, address specific health problems and imbalances and / or to increase relaxation and well-being. Acupuncture can be thought of as working by activating the body’s natural self-healing mechanism.

It's hard to describe those touches with Trish's warm hands, sometimes light as a feather and sometimes as a deep but gentle move that at first seems random but then I found my breathing echoed the movement.


Good Mood Stabiliser

Daily practice of eurythmy therapy has proved a good mood stabiliser for me.


The acupuncture treatments shifted my state of health

The acupuncture treatments shifted my state of health and my understanding of it, and I felt accompanied in this process of recovery in a gentle, kind and professional way. All in all it was much more than “needles” and I would definitely recommend Paloma.

The support and treatment he provides is beyond compare

Dr Andrew Evans is very friendly and helpful taking away any nervousness you might feel. The support and treatment he provides is beyond compare and has made a big difference to my life! Liz Hart

It has given clear focus to my life.

I have enjoyed my art therapy and the clear focus it has given to my life. My daily purpose and direction has been eased by it. It has freed me up of my pointless baggage. I feel better about my self and my life, more cheerful, much less unhappy. It has been an important process for putting my life into better perspective. I can feel my inner happiness coming through and do feel lighter in myself today-SJT

An Exemplary Doctor

In my opinion, Dr Claudia Kempfen is an exemplary doctor. As a patient with a rare condition she has been supportive and genuinely caring, researching where necessary and pursuing channels of further investigation. Her attention to detail is unfaltering and thorough. I consider her humanitarian attitude a further gift for those in her care. MF 15.07.2016

Highly Recommended

Dr Andrew Evans is little short of a miracle worker! He transformed me from a hobbling wreck to a reasonable upright and free moving 73 year old!!! Highly recommended. Peter J

Totally Headache Free

I visited Andrew over a year ago because bad headaches were affecting me. With his expertise and knowledge, I am now totally headache free and always leave with a total sense of general well being - feeling totally revitalised!!! Tracey L

St Luke’s Art Therapy

I now feel armed with knowledge and tools that really help me; not only have I been supported in my journey to get well, but I have also discovered a new way of seeing life and a skill which I had always wished I possessed, but never had the chance or indeed the inclination to follow. With the nurturing and caring support I have received from Karin, I have found within myself a centre of peace, calm and inner confidence which I can use to apply to every day life. H.R.

Back Problems

I have suffered from back problems much of my life (recently discovered one leg is longer than the other) and must say the longest time pain free was after a series of sessions with Andrew - only not having more because I left the country! Bruce Fenton


I feel so blessed to have met Andrew. I have experienced such a profound level of healing after each treatment I have had, on a mind, body and soul level. Andy is an incredibly caring, professional, wise and knowledgeable Soul and works with such integrity to get to the root of the issue presented enabling healing to take place. The ladies at the centre are so welcoming, calm and approachable too. To echo a previous reviewer, I have found my treatments to be life changing on so many levels. Thank you.
