Acupuncture acts on areas of the brain known to reduce sensitivity to pain and stress, as well as promoting relaxation and deactivating the ‘analytical’ brain, which is responsible for anxiety and worry.
Hi, I'm Vanessa
an acupuncturist practicing in Walthamstow. I am passionate about supporting women’s health, fertility, IVF and pregnancy and have a special interest in chronic conditions, pain, digestive issues and sleep.
Acupuncture is about so much more than just needles. Your session is a space for you to relax, to speak freely and feel supported in taking control of your health. My treatments are an opportunity to explore different approaches, gather practical information and work out all the ways I can help you to feel well. I place a great deal of importance on simple lifestyle shifts with diet, movement and self awareness so that your appointment extends far beyond our meeting.
I am a fully insured member my professional body The British Acupuncture Council.
Acupuncture is believed to stimulate the central nervous system. This, in turn, releases chemicals into the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. Biochemical changes can stimulate the body's natural healing abilities and promote physical and emotional well-being. MRI scans show that acupuncture triggers the body’s healing process by calming the central nervous system, regulating hormones and releasing endorphins.
Chinese Medicine is one of the oldest natural healthcare systems in the world, originating over 3000 years ago, and works to identify the underlying imbalances that cause the presenting symptoms. Acupuncture uses very fine needles inserted into specific locations in the body to rebalance the body’s energy and engage the body’s natural healing mechanism.

I've struggled with pain from an old knee injury for years, but Vanessa's treatments have been an absolute saviour. Without a doubt, nothing has been more effective in relieving my pain and supporting my return to 'normal life' from injury.
Vanessa has such a caring and gentle approach to her consultation, that made me open up with ease about the whole range of other potential lifestyle contributors I hadn't even considered.
