Many elite sports people, from a wide range of sports such as tennis, football, rowing, triathlon, skiing and swimming, have received acupuncture from Alan to enhance their sports performance.
Alan’s acupuncture treatment for stress and anxiety helps patients to restore balance to their bodies and their daily lives.
The gentle and calming effect of Japanese acupuncture has incredible restorative power that enables patients to overcome the debilitating effects of stress and anxiety such as digestion problems, insomnia, disturbed sleep or tightness in the neck, shoulders or back.
One of the great benefits of Japanese Acupuncture is its ability to strengthen a person’s immune system and speed up the natural healing processes of the body.
Alan has used this inherent power of acupuncture to treat chronic fatigue particularly in adolescents and elite athletes. His acupuncture treatments have also proven effective for immune deficiencies such as colds and flu, pneumonia, asthma and post-viral syndrome.
Japanese Acupuncture as a gentle form of treatment is very suitable for women’s health issues such as infertility and related IVF treatment, problems with pregnancy, natural birth assistance, menstrual pain and overall pre- and post-natal care.
