Acupuncture and Tuina Massage 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 and for more information about tuina massage, and take a look at the BAcC website for more information about what we may be able to support.
My name is Andrew Wormald and I am a Bristol based acupuncturist experienced in helping a wide variety of clients – from those who are simply feeling a little out of balance to those who are dealing with more lifechanging illness. My aim during your treatment sessions is to provide a deeply relaxing atmosphere, combined with effective and compassionate care.
There is a great deal of research into the effectiveness of acupuncture for treating a wide variety of conditions. To read more about this please visit the BAcC website. You can also read more about acupuncture at our Bristol clinic, or read more about me.
If you have any questions or are unsure if acupuncture is right for you, then please consider arranging a short complementary consultation. You can choose to do this either by phone or in-person – this will allow me to assess your situation and to advise whether acupuncture is likely to be an effective treatment for you.
I am always happy to call you back for a complementary consultation over the phone, or you can come and visit me in the clinic. If you’re in Bristol and not sure if acupuncture is right for you, I am here to answer any and all of your questions.
