True Fortune

I am a Bristol based acupuncturist who specialises in combining acupuncture, acupressure massage and qigong exercise in order to help with a wide variety of health issues.

Acupuncture, acupressure and qigong exercise are treatment methods that can offer support to those who need help regaining balance in their life, but can also support people experiencing more serious illness. Whatever condition you are living with, it is well worth considering how traditional Chinese medicine might help. Please use the following links for more information about acupuncture, for more information about acupressure, and for more information about some of the conditions we can support.

Once you have decided that acupuncture or acupressure treatment are right for you, you will need to get in touch to arrange a suitable time for a free 15 minute phone consultation. Then, if you’re happy to proceed, I can book you in for a more detailed initial consultation that will last up to 1 hour and 15 minutes, including a thorough examination of your condition as well as initial treatment. All follow-up appointments are then generally booked on a week by week basis, or as a 3-week block if that that works for you.

I currently practice at the Kingswood Foundation. This is an ideal location for anyone located in East Bristol, easily accessible from areas such as Easton, St George, Kingswood, Fishponds, Downend, Hanham, Keynsham etc. and postcode areas such as BS5, BS15, BS16, BS30, BS31.

If you’re interested in an initial chat to find out how treatment might help then please do get in touch.

Andrew at True Fortune was fantastic. I'd never had acupuncture before, and went as it had been recommended to me to do alongside IVF. Andrew held the space with sensitivity and expertise - always taking the time to explain what he was doing and why. I really appreciated his calm, kind approach, tailored to my particular situation. And I'm now 37 weeks pregnant 🙂 I'd strongly recommend him to anyone considering acupuncture, and particularly for fertility/IVF issues

I went to Andrew for Acupressure for my sciatica. I hadn't had it before but it was really effective A proper treatment. In the past I have tried multiple Chiropractors and Thai Massage but this will be my first port of call if it flairs up again. Thank you very much!

Andrew is a professional, attentive and caring acupuncturist.The premises are nice and relaxing and Andrew listens to your problems.My health issues at present are a little complex, but my consultations with Andrew, his knowledge of the body and his treatment protocol including bodywork, nutrition advice and breathing exercises have been extremely beneficial to me and have resulted in both temporary and more permanent improvement of my symptoms.I will continue to use Andrew and his practice regularly as a viable treatment.

Andrew was recommended to me through a friend, and I began seeing him last year. Acupuncture is a treatment I’ve found works well for me and since moving to Bristol I was on the look out for a good therapist. I have found the treatment Andrew provides is very effective for keeping me well and fine tuned! I have dermatitis on my hands and usually becomes inflamed during the winter months. Although not totally removed, I noticed significant reduced symptoms and my hand is are much more comfortable. Since having the treatment I also felt I have more energy even though I have a young child and a business these can be demanding and tiring. Andrew is a patient listener, who takes time to understand me and I get the impression he is very thorough. He approach is kind, gentle and he his knowledge of acupuncture is extensive. He is clearly passionate about what he does to help peoples mental and physical well-being. Highly recommend.

Strong, gentle and effective: Andy Wormald's rare and special combination of tuina and acupuncture succeeded in releasing my frozen shoulder (and improving my mood) , after osteopathy, massage and (extremely painful) physiotherapy had all failed. Highly recommended.

As both a sceptic of alternative medicine and not particularly keen on needles, acupuncture should be at the bottom of my list of treatments to try. Luckily I decided to come for some sessions with Andy and that perspective has totally changed! I've had long-term lower back issues due to an injury at work and have tried many different treatments. I booked in for three sessions with Andy and was blown away at the difference I felt after them. He was really thorough in his initial assessment, and we agreed on a varied course of massage and needles, as well as some more hollistic advice to take home. His calming demeanour kept me calm throughout and I actually sort of enjoyed the sessions, to my surprise.I have previously been in near-constant lower back pain and this has now reduced to just when I've done more strenuous activities. I'll definitely be doing more sessions in the future to see if this can improve further!

Andrew is a wonderful teacher. l enjoyed learning the TaiChi 13 and experienced real moments of stillness and silence in the standing and sitting meditations. Looking forward to part 2!

Andrew's Workshop was an excellent day. I enjoyed it all and would like to say that it is like a moving meditation, very graceful and peaceful, allowing you to bring harmony into your personal self. The day was well attended and it was also good to meet like-minded people. Highly recommended. Barbara

I attended a Qigong & Tai Chi Thirteen (part 1) workshop that Andrew ran. The workshop was very well organised. Andrew created a very relaxed and comfortable learning environment. It was clear from his explanations that he has a great depth of knowledge about what he is teaching. Andrew explained the movements clearly and ensured that everyone, in a mixed ability group, was able to enjoy the experience and improve their practice.

Andrew is a great teacher. I've been practicing Tai Chi with Andrew over 5 month and I can't recommend him more. Her is very knowledgeable and he goes into details of each movement very precisely. I've been practicing marshal arts for many years and along the way had practiced a few different style of Qigong/ Tai Chi. But I feel so connected to the style that Andrew teaches. it has changed my life for good.
