The principal aim of acupuncture is to discover the root cause of the condition (according to Chinese Medicine) and address it at each level. Most conditions are a combination of physical, mental and emotional factors and each area needs to be addressed to facilitate a comprehensive change.

For this reason we look at dietary changes, the use of supplements and herbs, physical issues(exercises, posture, breath, injury’s) and the mental and emotional aspects and how they all can influence each other positively or negatively.

In determining the pattern of disharmony, the acupuncturist needs a detailed understanding of the patient’s lifestyle, diet, work, medical history, emotional states etc.

The diagnosis can include discussion, observation and examination. What the physician is looking for is not symptoms in isolation, but rather how they build up to form a whole picture. It then attempts to put together an overall picture of the patient in order to evaluate any patterns of disharmony that have arisen. Health is a state of total harmony between the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of the individual. Illness, on the other hand, is a disharmony.


Chinese Philosophy of Qi


Qi flows through certain channels forming a network within the entire body and linking all parts and functions together so that they work as one unit. There are 12 main channels, each connected to an internal organ and named after that organ.

When a person is healthy the Qi moves smoothly through the channels, but if for some reason the flow is blocked or too weak or too strong then illness occurs. The aim of the acupuncturist is to correct the flow of Qi by inserting thin needles into particular points on the channels and so affect a change in a part, or function of the body.

I came to Jonathan about one year ago with a heart condition(Atrial Fibrillation) which was debilitating, during the episodes which I suffered, on average every three weeks. I saw two top cardiologists who both told me I needed a heart operation (ablation) and that the problem would not go away without that. I ignored them and instead had acupuncture and did Journey Work with Jonathan

After about 9 months the episodes of AF ceased and at time of writing, I have not had one for over six months. Jonathan is incredibly positive and supportive and I am forever indebted for the improvements he has made to my health and Life.

This therapy is very relaxing and calming, it is energy releasing and invigorating. It also promoted me into having a good sleep. It works by improving my blood circulation and promoted the release of 'Feel Good' hormones. It makes me warm and tingly. It helps me to drift off into a lovely deep sleep. It makes me feel really refreshed. It is one of the best stress busters and I've never slept so well since the treatment.
