Darren practises a unique style of acupuncture and chinese medicine which is rooted in a traditional approach and yet also embraces the most up to date scientific research. It is a system which is ancient and at the same time in the present moment.

He creates personal treatment plans combining acupuncture, herbal medicine, bodywork, exercise and nutrition.

In chinese medicine the body, emotions and mind are seen as a whole, each having an influence on and interaction with each other. Sustained exposure to a specific emotion will create a real physiological change in the body and modern research now supports the old chinese medicine saying that “emotions are the root of disease”. Science has recently documented this physiological response of the emotions in the body. 

Darren treats a wide range of physical, mental and emotional conditions.  He specialises in acupuncture for fertility, IVF support and women's health, consulting from his tranquil central London acupuncture clinics, located in the W1, SW1 and N16 areas.

  • I had weekly acupuncture over four weeks combined with Chinese herbs. The treatment itself was really relaxing, Darren has a very calming manner and immediately puts you at ease. I felt lovely for the rest of the evening following acupuncture and generally was a lot less stressed. The result, I am happy to say, is that I got pregnant that month. I am now 15 weeks pregnant and this has been an extremely easy pregnancy (I had a lot of bleeding with my last one). I would highly recommend Darren to anyone who is interested in fertility acupuncture. It was a lovely experience and, fortunately for me, a lovely outcome.

  • I cannot recommend Darren highly enough. He is caring, kind and professional. We were about to have an appointment for IVF but didnt need to! Without going into lots of personal details, Darren correctly located the problem without me having been specific and we conceived the next month & have a wonderful baby girl x.

  • My partner and I had been trying for a baby for just over a year and were starting to consider IVF. A friend recommended that we’d go and see Darren and I am very pleased to say that after 3 months I was pregnant with our baby boy now 18 months. We are so very grateful to Darren for helping us and would recommend him warmly to anybody.
