For Patients

















Tim Sullivan

Tim runs a busy practice in North-West London where he practices Acupuncture, Tui Na and Reflexology. Tim treats all sorts of conditions, however he specialises in three main areas
Physical Injury and Pain: Mainly using Tui Na and Acupuncture to treat the pain, Tim helps find the cause of the unresolved injury/pain. This can be from posture, habitual tension/movements or stress. He then proscribes exercises or therapeutic techniques to speed up the healing process.
Emotional Trauma: Using Tui Na to treat the physical root of the trauma and Acupuncture to treat the Qi blockages. Proscribing awareness and breathing exercises.
Personal Development: The aim of any personal development is to achieve lasting and sustainable change. At the heart of achieving this change is first understand your own habits and patterns and second is simply making different choices. Some choices are about acceptance of ourselves instead of fighting, others are about applying discipline to go down different paths. Chinese medicine has much to offer anybody wanting lasting change.
