Acupuncture

Acupuncture has been practised in eastern countries for 2,500 years. It’s a traditional form of Chinese medicine based on the understanding that our body’s motivating energy force or Qi (pronounced chi) moves through a network of channels, or meridians, that run beneath the skin. According to Acupuncture theory, illness arises from blockages in the energy flow. Therapists insert fine, sterile needles at various points on the meridians to rebalance the body’s energy.

Bryan Melville - Acupuncture

Clinic Times: Monday 2 – 6pm

I became interested in acupuncture when I was successfully treated with it after getting malaria in South America. I had previously travelled extensively in China and worked in Taiwan, leaning to speak Chinese while I was there.

I graduated from the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading in 1996. We were taught to combine 5 Element acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine styles of treatment to cover different techniques where one or both are more appropriate.

I enjoy working with all people but have specialized in fertility – male and female, hayfever, migraines and headaches, back pain and insomnia.

I try to create a calm and quiet atmosphere and feel it is very important to listen carefully and give clients a space where they can feel safe and supported.

I am a member of the BAcC which has a Code of Practice, Code of Ethics and Continued Professional Development policy
