Old Town Acupuncture Eastbourne welcomes you...

We all know that life can flow more smoothly sometimes.....

The physical, mental and spiritual benefits of acupuncture can be profound. Health problems are addressed by a subtle re-balancing with the insertion of very fine needles into specific areas of the body to stimulate points where energy accumulates. 

The World Health Organisation distinguishes 28 conditions that acupuncture has proven success in treating. Traditional Chinese Medicine is a complete Medical System, able to address physical , mental and spiritual health issues. 

About Joy

Joy qualified as a Registered General Nurse in 1988,  going on to qualify as a Registered Mental Health Nurse at the Maudsley Hospital, London.
Through her nursing career, she became involved  with the Gateway Clinic, an NHS clinic offering Chinese Medicine (TCM). Noticing the great benefits TCM  has to offer, Joy went on to study Acupuncture, obtaining a 2:1 Honours degree from Westminster University. Joy achieved a certificate in Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) at Canterbury University. 

CBT is a talking therapy to help anxiety and depression. Working collaboratively, we make sense of what is maintaining difficulties and come up with ways of thinking and behaving which breaks the cycles of distress. Using a blended approach Acupuncture can alleviate the physical sensations associated with emotional distress , such as tension and insomnia.

A personal journey to health has included healing myself of chronic eczema and more recently a cancer diagnosis. Taking ownership of my health has led to a healthier, happier me. I have long has a spiritual calling and practiced yoga from 14 years old. I have practiced Qi Gong for over 25 years and climbed the mountain for fasting and prayer through 3 vision quests. As a Channupa carrier I am honoured to be a part of this path of connection to spirit.
