Acupuncturist in London
About Archna Patel
MBAcC, LicAc, MBFS
As one of the leading acupuncturists in London’s West End, Archna has been treating clients for a wide and diverse range of conditions for over 17 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 client she meets has unique needs based on unique symptoms and unique lifestyles – and so she has made it her business to ensure her own acupuncture 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 clients owes much to her efficient diagnoses and keen professional judgement.
She has practiced acupuncture in London with a range of well-regarded private clinics and started her own practice ten years ago, assembling an enviable client 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.
About Marina Cosmetatos
MBAcC, MSc CHM, BSc (Hons) Acupuncture
Marina is a highly qualified acupuncturist whose 15 years of practice experience in London allows her to provide effective treatment that draws on a number of different traditions from East Asian medicine.
A member of the British Acupuncture Council, she combines knowledge and practice in gentle yet powerful Japanese acupuncture, modern and integrative scalp acupuncture, ancient Yuan Qi techniques and traditional Chinese medicine to deliver highly effective and innovative healing that looks beyond simple symptom management.
The multi-dimensional diagnostic techniques intrinsic to Oriental medicine means Marina can identify and then resolve the root causes of the conditions and problems that bring patients to her.
She has a Master’s degree in Chinese herbal medicine from Westminster University and continued her studies through post-graduate learning in Osaka and internship training in hospitals in Beijing.
A lot of attention in acupuncture treatment is focused on stress-relief and rebalancing the body-mind equilibrium and the treatment of sleep disorders, anxiety, depression, grief, worry, OCD and other such conditions is essential in sorting out physical complaints.
Marina has extensive experience working with autoimmune and hormonal disorders, including allergies and food sensitivities, IBS and Crohn’s disease, asthma, thyroid gland imbalances, and other digestive and endocrine conditions.
Marina’s work includes more than a decade specialising in gynaecology, fertility and pregnancy support, helping women at all stages of life – painful periods, pre-menstrual tension, PCOS and endometriosis, preparation for labour, and peri-menopausal complaints.
Archna has treated me for menopausal symptoms, for shoulder pain and for stress. She is an excellent acupuncturist, highly professional and a warm and caring human being. Having been sceptical at the beginning, I realised quickly that Archna’s treatments result in real improvements and alleviation of symptoms. I have total confidence in Archna and recommend her unreservedly.
I came to Archna with severe pain in my right arm due to golfer’s elbow, which was having a great effect on my ability to play tennis. From one session, Archna was able to both identify the cause of the issue and provid an effective treatment. Within days I was able to play again without any pain and have not had any recurrences! This being my first acupuncture session, I had some trepidation. But Archna’s calm manner and expertise put me immediately at ease. I cannot recommend her highly enough!d
Archna Patel is a truly talented and professional acupuncturist. She has treated me successfully for physical issues (foot and back injuries), and also deeper emotional issues (stress, anxiety). The Acupuncturists clinic location near Green Park is super convenient and easy to find. I can’t recommend Archna highly enough and only wish I could give her more than 5 stars.
I’m really well looked after by Archna and feel my needs are being treated with care on a weekly basis. Would highly recommend to anyone!
“I have really enjoyed my experience going to Archna I was hesitant at first having never tried accupuncture before but have found it to be a very effective compliment to other treatments. Archna has treated my for stress, lower back pain and allergies. I was surprised how effective acupuncture can be and what a wonderful practioner Archna is. The location is very convienent I can go right after work.”
“Sitting in the office all day and working without much movement during the week, my neck and back have bothered me for months. I was recommended accupuncture with Archna and after initial skepticism of needles and acupuncture in general, I made an appointment with Archna. My experience was excellent and she has relieved my of my aches, whether in neck, head, back, hips etc. I am a regular with Archna now and very happy! Highly recommend her!”

“I went to Archna initially with a very painful bursitis which couldn’t be treated with physiotherapy apart from steroid injections. She managed to treat my shoulder in a few sessions and I started to feel so much better. What I love about Archna is that she is very professional and she explains exactly what she is doing. She has an amazingly calm energy which helps you relax into the treatment and the session. I am a regular client now as she has helped me with many other issues from digestive issues to tension and even emotional imbalance. I look forward to my sessions as I leave feeling so relaxed and very light which are a result of the acupuncture but also Archna’s magical touch and energy.”
“My experience at the Acupuncturists was wonderful, every time since I have started seeing Archna over two years ago. She is a fantastic practitioner, really knowledgeable and very focused on providing the best treatment possible. She is very professional and knows how to adjust each treatment so that when you leave you feel much better then when you arrived. She has helped me with stress, back pain, shoulder tension, digestive issues and common cold relief. I would highly recommend Archna to anyone looking to receive treatment.”
“Archna is the most professional, knowledgeable and caring acupuncturist I have seen so far. I will get treated by no one else in the future. Archna not only has over 20 years of acupuncture experience, but in addition she is the only practitioner in her field who I have met, who takes a holistic and much more thorough approach for treating her patients. Archna is efficient, to the point, and extremely skilled. I have recommended Archna to several friends, who are all as happy as I am. I cannot recommend Archna enough and wish I had found her earlier! Thank you Archna!”
I have been seeing Archna for six months, after struggling with anxiety, stress and difficulties with conception. I was very nervous about approaching acupuncture, but Archna put me at ease within 2 minutes of meeting her. Her calm and reassuring manner helped me to relax, and she went out of her way to make sure that I was always comfortable and felt secure with the treatment options. My appointments with Archna are now little oases of quiet and calm; her treatments dropped my anxiety levels significantly, and I fell pregnant after just a month of seeing her! I truly believe this was a result of Archna’s healing and nurturing treatments, as well as her warm and caring presence. Despite reaching my goal of pregnancy, I am still seeing Archna to calm, soothe and invigorate me during this time, she is the best – thank you Archna.
