Chinese herbs can be taken by the traditional brewing of raw herbs, or made into convenient capsule or powder form. All the ingredients are natural ,and there are over 400 herbs in common use. No two prescriptions are the same for each client ,and prescriptions are therefore tailored for the specific ailment of the person. Over the last year, Alison has continued to increase the number of herbal prescriptions given to her clients. This progression towards combining acupuncture treatment with Chinese herbal medicine has been strengthened by the positive results in clinic. To make an informed Chinese medical diagnosis, it is crucial to draw upon all the ancient knowledge handed down over the centuries. Alison has enjoyed and continues to enjoy spending time researching classical herbal formulae and their various modifications.
“I came to Alison with acute and chronic symptoms from UTI (urinary tract infection), osteoporosis and chronic liver disease. I was unable to tolerate the antibiotics and painkillers however I responded quickly to the combination of acupuncture and traditional Chinese herbal medicine without suffering drug-induced side effects. Using regular proactive treatments, I now live virtually pain free which enables me to fully embrace and enjoy my life.”
“I have been receiving treatment from Alison since I moved from Surrey to Somerset three years ago. For a number of years I had been suffering from debilitating headaches, for which I was receiving acupuncture treatment from a very good acupuncturist in Surrey. I naturally wanted to continue with treatment once I moved and found Alison’s details and made my first appointment. I now visit Alison on a monthly basis and with her treatment I am now in the happy position of being headache free. She also treats me for various aches and pains associated with getting older and has prescribed Chinese herbal powder to cool my body down. Alison has the uncanny ability of telling me how I’m feeling just by taking my pulse, something that surprised me to begin with but now accept as part of the routine. She puts me at ease and I always leave her feeling good about myself. “
