About The Acupuncturists in London

About Archna Patel
MBAcC. LicAc.

As one of the leading acupuncturists in London, Archna has been treating patients for a wide and diverse range of conditions for over 18 years.

Though she has a special interest and expertise in treating Women’s Health and Male and Female Fertility issues, she also has extensive experience treating a wide range of stress-related conditions from headaches and migraines to back and neck pain from digestive disorders to anxiety, insomnia and mood swings

Archna attributes her success to the fact she recognises that every patient she meets has unique needs based on unique symptoms and unique lifestyles – and so she has made it her business to ensure her own treatments are uniquely tailored to the patient.

Using traditional methods to determine underlying energetic imbalances, she also uses state-of-the-art technology to highlight issues that may be the root of the symptoms that present physically. Her track record of successful treatment and hundreds of happier and healthier patients owes much to her efficient diagnoses and keen professional judgement.

She has practiced in London with a range of well-regarded private clinics and started her own practice eleven years ago, assembling an enviable patient base based on personal recommendations and referrals.

She is a graduate of the internationally-acclaimed College of Integrated Chinese Medicine and practices Traditional Chinese Medicine and the Five Elements.

He has a life-long interest in Far Eastern cultures and the role that mind and body healing plays within them and a fascination for healing arts that has been an important part of family life since childhood has led him to work and train in both Japan and Thailand.

Pouyan believes in continuous personal and professional development. He completed an MA in Oriental Studies at the University of Venice and has since studied Acupuncture at the UK’s oldest acupuncture college, the International College of Oriental Medicine, where he was awarded a BSc (Hons) in Integrated Western Medicine and Classical Chinese Acupuncture.

He attends regular training courses to extend his expertise and knowledge in his specialist areas of practice, including postgraduate courses in acupuncture for infertility/IVF support, gynaecological conditions and musculoskeletal issues as well as Japanese styles of acupuncture.

He is a qualified yoga teacher and a full member of both the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) and Acupuncture Fertility Network.
