Chronicle Shropshire, May, 2007

I first met Dr. Daian Zou a few years ago when she did the business on my torn cartilage, the result of a mishap on the rugby field.

To quote one of Daian’s patients: “When I first arrived here the pain of staggering just 50 yards was almost unbearable. When I left, some 45 minutes later, I couldn’t believe the transformation.”

This is an often-heard response on introduction to a practice that dates back to before the 21st century BC.

Daian runs the St. John’s Hill Clinic for Chinese Medicine. She graduated in the Traditional Chinese Medicine University, Hunan Province, China, before practising conventional and Chinese medicine in China.

She then completed an advanced training programme in acupuncture in the attached hospital at TCM University of Hunan Province. Since she arrived in the UK, Daian has worked at clinics in London, Hampshire and Shropshire.

Dr. Daian’s approach is to integrae traditional and modern medical techniques for diagnosis, resulting in a natural treatment plan combining acupuncture, herbs and herbal medicines, nutritional therapy, exercise and lifestyle management.

Acupuncture ‘more than a placebo’

BBC News, Saturday, 30 April, 2005

Scientists say they have proof that acupuncture works in its own right.

Sceptics have said that any benefits gained from acupuncture are merely down to a person’s expectation that the treatment will work.

But researchers at University College London and Southampton University say they have separated out this placebo effect.

Their findings, based on a series of experiments and brain scan results, are published in the journal NeuroImage. Read more »

BBC Press Release 21/01/2006

An experiment conducted in the BBC Television series Alternative Medicine: The Evidence (BBC TWO, 9.00pm, Tuesday 24 January 2006) – presented by scientist Professor Kathy Sykes from Bristol University – shows acupuncture has a powerful and measurable effect on the human brain.

The effect is surprising, because scientists have previously predicted that parts of the cortex would be activated during acupuncture. Read more »

Acupuncture Boosts IVF Success

BBC News, Tuesday, 16 April, 2002

Women undergoing fertility treatment could have their chances of success boosted by acupuncture.

German researchers said they have increased success rates by almost 50% in women having in vitro fertilisation (IVF).

The theory is that acupuncture can affect the autonomic nervous system, which is involved in the control of muscles and glands, and could therefore make the lining of the uterus more receptive to receiving an embryo.

BBC News, Friday, 18 March, 2005
Acupuncture is effective at relieving pelvic pain during pregnancy, a study says.
Pelvic girdle pain is common among pregnant women with one in three affected suffering severe pain. Researchers found acupuncture was better at easing the pain than standard and specialised exercising.

From BBC

A lottery-funded scheme in Wiltshire has helped more than 600 people cope with drug addiction using acupuncture, a charity has said.

The New Highway charity has used the alternative therapy, alongside coaching, to help addicts in its 10 centres over the last two years.

It said it helped prevent relapses and combat anxiety.

But the NHS said not enough evidence existed to prove the effectiveness of acupuncture in treating drug addiction.

‘Cope with cravings’
New Highway, which was formerly known as Bath Area Drugs Advisory Service, won a £167,000 Big Lottery grant in 2010 to help people with drug and alcohol addictions through acupuncture therapy.

Kevin McAlpine, from the charity, said: “What we’ve seen is that it makes a significant difference with stress and being able to cope with cravings from withdrawal.”

Dr Max Bloomberg, a research fellow at Goldsmiths University of London, is sceptical of the benefits of the therapy.

He believes the care an addict receives when they receive acupuncture treatment is what they respond to.

“How do you tease apart other facts like care versus acupuncture?” Dr Bloomberg said.

“It often isn’t the acupuncture, it’s the lovely atmosphere, it’s the fact that someone really cares.”

Having been diagnosed with unexplained infertility I went for treatment with Daian. She made me feel at ease straight away and gave me support and advice alongside the weekly acupuncture sessions. Three months later I discovered I was pregnant (without any other interventions). We welcomed our baby into the world almost 11 months to the day after my first visit to Daian. I really believe it would not have been possible without her!I remain a regular client and I can’t recommend Daian highly enough.

Daian is an extremely talented and caring professional and I cannot say enough about how helpful and effective her treatments have been. I highly recommend a visit here if you are thinking about acupuncture. The atmosphere is peaceful and calming and Daian’s highly effective skills and treatment provides welcome relief from chronic pain in a calm in a restful environment.

It was an incredible experience and I would like to call it “magic”! I had not been able to sleep well for several months, and my whole body felt hard when I lied in bed, especially the neck and shoulders. Daian found a little lump on the back of my neck at the consultation . 30 minutes of acupuncture after, I immediately felt my neck relaxed. I did it again two days later, and the lump just disappeared! I went to sleep easily for the first time in months! Thank you, Daian! Thank you, the wonderful Chinese medical treatment!!

I have been going to Daian for treatment for many years now. She is a kind and compassionate lady who is also very accomplished in Acupuncture. I have suffered with severe Vertigo for many years, having had medication, exercises etc to no avail. Having treatment with Daian has completely changed my life - I very seldom have symptoms now, thanks to acupuncture but, if it flares up, a visit to the clinic soon settles it down again. My husband has also recently started to attend her clinic to have treatment for migraines and this, also, has been very successful. I would recommend Dr Daian Zou highly.
