Acupuncture in Durham

Acupuncture in Durham

Acupuncture is one of the longest established healthcare systems in the world. Acupuncturists are taught to use subtle diagnostic methods that have been developed and refined over thousands of years. Acupuncture focuses on you the individual, not on your illness, and all your symptoms are seen in relation to each other.

Treatment involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body to affect the flow of your body’s qi, or vital energy.

Lic (Acup) BSc (Hons) MBAcC

Ruth Burry has been qualified and working as an acupuncturist since 2002, helping people with a wide range of medical conditions in Surrey and West Sussex, and more recently also in Denmark, now bringing her Acupuncture to Durham. She trained at the International College of Oriental Medicine (ICOM) in East Grinstead, which is internationally renowned for its philosophical and practical application of the Stems and Branches theory, where it is taught alongside Five Elements theory and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). This enables practitioners to go into greater depth and breadth than with more conventional acupuncture approaches.

Ruth has been a member of the British Acupuncture Council since 2002.

Acupuncture is most effective when used as a course of treatment, and many people see their acupuncturist every 4, 6 or 8 weeks for a ‘top-up’ through the year.
