acupuncture - for all


The aim of acupuncture isn't, in fact, just to cure people of their ailments, but our acupuncturists aim to rebalance the body's energy systems, maximising the body's ability to heal itself and boosting its immune systems.

Acupuncture complements the other treatments offered at the London Osteopathy and Sports Injury Clinics and although it is often used in conjunction with osteopathy, physiotherapy or sports massage, it is an incredibly effective treatment in its own right.

Most people are aware that acupuncture is effective in treating the full range of muscular-skeletal problems, migraine, pre-menstrual syndrome and period pain, but acupuncture is also effective in treating addictions, depression and anxiety, sleeping problems (in adults and children) and many other complaints.

Cosmetic Acupuncture:

Cosmetic Acupuncture is a natural alternative to botox injections. The Cosmetic Acupuncture is used to rejuvenate the skin and muscles of the face. cosmetic acupuncture effectively improves crows feet, deeper wrinkles, dull complexion, dark circles and sagging facial skin.

Special equipment is used during the cosmetic acupuncture treatments, which can also be used to benefit acne, cellulite and to firm abdominal skin after weight loss.

Our Acupuncturists:

Ann Bradford, BAcC, RCHM, M.Sc, Acupuncturist:
Ann is one of the most experienced experienced acupuncture practitioners in London, who has been in practice for more than 20 years.
She uses acupuncture, Tui Na (chinese Therapeutic Massage) and Kkanpo (Japanese Massage) in her clinic.
After completing her training in the UK she travelled to China where she worked in a hospital in Nanjing. She then worked as acupuncturist in an NHS clinic in the Royal Free Hospital before going into private acupuncture practice. For the past 11 years she has been lecturing acupuncture at the University of Westminster, where she is a senior lecturer on the BSc Hons course in acupuncture.
- You will find that many established acupuncturists in London actually are former acupuncture students of Ann. She enjoys treating a wide range of problems including sports and musculo-skeletal injuries. She has special interest areas, which include treatment of women's problems (gynaecological etc) and treatment of children. She has a wide range of alternative techniques to acupuncture for those children (and adults) who are fearful of needles but still want a complete health care.
Neesha Perera, Acupuncturist and Cosmetic Acupuncture:
Neesha's areas of special interest are in the use of acupuncture for both male/female infertility and for facial revitalisation. She has completed relevant postgraduate seminars for infertility (hosted by the Royal College of Physicians).
Neesha takes an approach which works alongside orthodox medicine and whilst her treatments are based on Chinese medicine and tailored to the individual, she will where appropriate use the insights gained from acupuncture research trials to optimise the potential of treatment.
Neesha completed her training in facial revitalisation with the author of "Cosmetic Acupuncture" and now uses cosmetic acupuncture effectively to improve crows feet, deeper wrinkles, dull complexion, dark circles and sagging facial skin.
Special equipment is used during the treatments which can also be used to benefit acne, cellulite and to firm abdominal skin after weight loss. She combines acupuncture with gua sha (Japanese massage technique) which is very effective for inflammation & muscle spasm.
Neesha is a registered acupuncturist and has a background in Biomedical Sciences (King’s College London) before completing an acupuncture degree at The London College of Traditional Acupuncture. She pursued further clinical training at a busy acupuncture institution in Sri Lanka and worked at Lambeth NHS Hospital in the award winning Chinese Medicine centre. A variety of conditions were treated there including chronic pain syndromes, menstrual complaints, sports injuries, and migraines.
She now does acupuncture and cosmetic acupuncture in the Central London Osteopathy and Sports Injury Clinics.
