Acupuncture for Emotional Disorders

Emotional and psychological issues such as stress, anxiety, depression and insomnia inhibit our ability to function and enjoy our lives. Research shows acupuncture can have a positive effect on these problems. We also offer supporting treatments. Get in touch and let us help you restore balance.


Acupuncture for stress helps to alleviate stress-related conditions ranging from headaches to high blood pressure. Most people experience a feeling of relaxation and well-being during and after treatments and with regular sessions this can extend into our daily lives.

Acupuncture for anxiety can help reduce the sensations experienced when feeling anxious such as tight chest, rapid heartbeat, digestive problems, headaches and insomnia. It also helps to reduce the emotional aspects and calms the mind.

Research shows that chinese herbal medicine when combined with acupuncture can be effective at alleviating the physical and emotional symptoms of depression.

Acupuncture helps in cases of both chronic and mild insomnia. We begin taking a full history of your sleep and then create a treatment tailored your individual needs.

  • 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.
