"The primary aim of acupuncture treatment is to treat the whole system, addressing the core imbalance rather than to work solely on a superficial level treating symptoms. When the body and mind are helped to function at their optimum potential energetically, an inherent healing process is revitalised, leading to an increased sense of wellbeing and balance.
In Chinese Medicine we are each recognised as unique individuals and my treatment approach reflects this. I do everything I can to work authentically with each person I see. While acupuncture often has immediate good results, a truly positive and long lasting change tends to happen as treatment progresses. My task is to keep up the treatment momentum until real change is realised."

What you need to know when visiting the clinic
Having observed Bruce many times in clinic I can assure you he genuinely cares for each and every one of his patients. You couldn’t have a more dedicated, caring or humble practitioner on your side, going the extra mile to help you on your path towards healing.
Bruce is a calm and compassionate listener, and I feel comfortable talking to him about whatever is going on. Even so, he always intuits far more than I am able to put into words, and I think it is this quality which makes Bruce so exceptionally gifted as an acupuncturist; he can tell what’s gone wrong even when I don’t know myself.
I can thoroughly recommend Bruce. Approaching 40, I had been trying for a second baby for over a year and after a first-trimester miscarriage I decided to approach Bruce for some acupuncture support. After just a few sessions my menstrual cycle changed from being rather unpredictable to text-book regular, and I conceived.
Acupuncture had a powerful effect on me from day one – I felt Bruce understood me and I appreciated his honesty and assurance. I had a sense of trust in his approach from the outset. After the third treatment, I felt calm and grounded within myself. It was subtle, but I felt different.
Having acupuncture helped to alleviate the pain of my hamstring injury and increased the elasticity of the muscle and I was very happy with the outcome. Bruce tailored the sessions so that we could also improve my general well being, helping with relaxation, sleep and energy levels. I highly recommend!
Regardless of how I feel going into an acupuncture session with Bruce, I never fail to walk out feeling better, calmer and often smiling. His calm and understanding manner is a real tonic, especially if I have been feeling anxious, worried or depressed.
