- Safe, effective and holistic treatment for a wide range of conditions, including infertility, pain, energy deficiency, and many more.
An invisible life force called Qi (pronounced chee) travels up and down the body in 14 meridians. Illness and pain are due to blockages and imbalances in Qi. Inserting thin needles into the body at precise points can unblock the meridians and treat everything from arthritis, asthma to anxiety, acne and infertility.
Research has shown that some herbal combinations have the same effects as chemical synthetic drugs, such as restraining viruses, stopping pain & balancing the hormones. The effectiveness, however, depends heavily on the experience and qualifications of the practitioner and on his/her understanding of the patient’s health conditions.

What Our Patients Say
- ~ Marianne – May 2017
- ~ “amazing ” – Mrs Hambley – Shrewsbury
"I began seeing a Chinese doctor, who was amazing, she worked in harmony with my medicated fertility cycles and would advise certain practices, food and habits at different points of the month, such as moxibustion, kidney warming, eating lots of sweet potato and having been vegan and then vegetarian I even followed her instructions to have plenty of bowls of chicken soup, I would also not go anywhere without my feet snuggled in a big pair of warm woolly socks, for the Chinese believe that by keeping the feet warm aids circulation, especially to the uterus and I would happily embrace the 45 minutes I did nothing except lie in a peaceful room, listening to relaxing music whilst I had acupuncture. Clinical research has found that receiving acupuncture alongside IVF treatment can increase pregnancy rates by 65%* and although this was still my goal, over the months of regular visits to Dr Zou I had also started to find that the grief that I had been carrying deep inside my stomach since the death of my brother started to lift and with it I had started to experience a new"

"6 sessions of acupuncture, my blood retest confirmed what I already knew, as I was feeling so much better. That I wouldn't need to start taking lifelong medication for my thyroid as the test showed, it was now normal. Thank you very much for your extremely professional"
- ~ Wow what a difference it has made – Ron, Shrewsbury
"Published in 'AS News - Spring 2016'. After much thought and a little research, I decided to give acupuncture a chance. Wow what a difference it has made. I'm unsure of the total effect on pain relief but it has had an immense impact on my overall sense of body relaxation and physical and mental well being. In Autumn 2015 after a little additional neck pain, my acupuncturist massaged my neck following my acupuncture session. She then explained she did also offer acupressure massage. After just three sessions I am wholly committed to this. The effect on my neck and shoulders has been amazing plus the overall whole body experience is really profound. A hour of acupressure massage, possibly alongside acupuncture, could be considered a useful contribution to AS therapeutic treatment"
