Acupuncture Wokingham is based in the Wokingham Therapy Clinic, Denmark St, Wokingham and is run by experienced acupuncturist Dr (TCM) Attilio D'Alberto. The clinic is one of only a handful in the UK to practise Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) acupuncture.
Most acupuncture practised in the UK is based on classic five-element acupuncture which is centred around the five elements of wood, fire, earth, metal and water. TCM acupuncture combines the traditional teachings of Chinese acupuncture, Qi (pronounced 'Chi') meaning life force, with modern western medicinal practices. This unique combination means TCM is based as much on science as it is in traditional theory. It is this combination that makes TCM acupuncture more effective at healing ailments than classic 5-element acupuncture.
TCM acupuncture can be used as a complementary medicine to treat an array of physical ailments including chronic pain, fertility, anxiety, depression and irritable bowel syndrome. All the treatments practised at Acupuncture Wokingham are carried out by Dr (TCM) D'Alberto, an experienced TCM practitioner and form part of a balanced health care system which includes dietary prescriptions and lifestyle changes to help remedy specific health problems.
Your acupuncture experience
Visiting any clinic for the first time can be a nerve-wracking experience, so at Acupuncture Wokingham we work hard to ensure you are relaxed from the moment you arrive. Once you are settled, you will be introduced to our acupuncturist will listen to your concerns and answer any questions you have about the treatment.
Our acupuncturist will then ask a few questions about your medical history and conduct a painless, non-invasive general health assessment, which involves looking at your tongue and taking your pulse. Once the assessment is complete, Dr (TCM) D'Alberto will make a detailed diagnosis and prescribe a course of treatment tailored to your specific needs.
Once you are ready to start treatment, your emotional state will be assessed. Many patients are nervous about having needles stuck in them for the first time, so we'll take care to ensure you are relaxed and ready before treatment begins. Dr (TCM) D'Alberto has many years of experience and his calming demeanour will help soothe you. Once the treatment begins, you will be pleasantly surprised how relaxing and entirely painless the procedure is.
