Employee welfare is no longer optional
The days when businesses could simply rely on box-ticking occupational health schemes to protect employee wellbeing are long past, with more and more firms now seeing the benefit of taking proactive steps to safeguard the health and welfare of their people.
At The Acupuncturists, we treat a wide range of conditions that can be linked back to the impact the patients’ working environments have on them.
Acupuncture is a highly effective whole-body treatment that can achieve exponential benefit in tackling workplace absenteeism through sickness, and reduced productivity and morale through presenteeism.
Because it is a form of alternative medicine that focuses on whole-body treatment rather than targeting symptom-management, in treating one condition it can also have the added ‘halo effect’ of nipping other underlying issues in the bud, before they impact adversely on employee health.
The conditions we regularly see include physical and emotional problems that manifest either as stress or physical pain and discomfort, and so we offer a comprehensive package of corporate treatments that are designed to help companies demonstrate ongoing support for staff wellbeing that goes above and beyond passive interest.
We also provide free online resources to help inform business owners, leaders and managers about their legal responsibilities in the workplace.
From this page you can download our latest information pack which explains the role stress plays in the workplace, the estimated cost to business and the simple steps employers can take to mitigate the health risks associated with a condition that is now widely recognised as the biggest health issue affecting UK employees.

What are the advantages of your business working with us?
Our employee wellbeing packages have a number of clear benefits that will help you to identify and deal with problems early.
But more than that, by working in partnership with our award-winning therapists you’ll also be in a position to offer health benefits that are fully integrated into your business – meaning support can be provided to members of staff who need it in a way that doesn’t impact on how the business runs.
We can also talk to your leadership teams about best practice in assessing employee health, the suitability of workstations and the general working environment and ergonomics and how our services can reap rewards when it comes to employee retention and satisfaction.
And of course, working in partnership with a wellbeing clinic can also help to take the guesswork out of meeting your legal responsibilities for employee care.
What are the benefits to employees of your business working with us?
Quite apart from the treatment that your staff will have access to, there is a lot of evidence to show that employees who are offered wellbeing services in the workplace are generally happier, healthier and have greater job satisfaction than in businesses where there is no employee health scheme available.
That translates into better productivity, better engagement and better performance.

Your Health in Safe Hands
I feel that Marina played an important role in keeping my lovely baby and I healthy right the way through my much wanted pregnancy.
I have been seeing Archna since 2017, for injuries, shoulder, neck and back pains and overall health and maintenance. She is very caring and professional toward my treatment, it was great we found her for my acupuncture needs in London. I would recommend Archna for anyone seeking acupuncture treatment. Thank you!
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.
“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.”
“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.”
I went to see Archna after being highly recommended by my sister. I found Archna’s caring and lovely nature made me feel completely comfortable, and I was amazed with the results I got after a treatment with her. As a mum of two my back had taken a battering along with my energy, I’m writing this now feeling like a new woman! So I now join my sister in highly recommending her to everyone!
I have been consulting Archna for around 15 years. Her work never ceases to astonish me, and now I find there is no ailment that I would not ask her about. Most entrancing though, is her deep-sourced integrity and soulfulness. I have recommended her work to most of my friends and family and will continue to do so.
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 must thank Marina for what was a mind-blowing experience, on a whole different level to what I experienced through the acupuncture provided through the NHS up to that date.
Archna is an absolutely amazing and gifted acupuncturist. She has treated me for a variety of back, neck and skin conditions, and the results and healing effects on the body have been nothing short of extraordinary. I really like her energy, integrity and commitment to the work that she is doing and would strongly recommend her to anyone seeking a natural treatment to any physical or emotional issue.
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.
My daughter has been suffering from hay fever for a very long time and we’ve tried many different treatments which didn’t help but Archna has achieved amazing results with just few sessions only. She is very professional and trustworthy lady and I cannot thank her enough for everything she did for my daughter. Thank you
“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 really believe that had i not considered accupunture and had i not met Marina, i would still be on that so called infertility journey. She is one of the reasons why my my family is now complete and why our life is now full of joy and happiness. I couldn’t thank her enough.
“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 couldn’t recommend Archna highly enough! I’ve been seeing her for over a year now – for various reasons – including digestive issues and addiction. Archna is the warmest, most caring practitioner I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. She makes you feel completely at ease in the treatment and with her many years of experience, always knows just what to do. She is an integral part to my recovery and I feel blessed to have her in my life.
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.
“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.”
I can’t recommend Archna highly enough. It’s such a personal experience receiving treatment from her, every time I go I always leave feeling more balanced, calm and centred. I’m also positive that seeing her for the past two years played a part in helping me get pregnant and definitely helped me during pregnancy with my sciatica. She has recently helped me so much with upper back and neck tension and with my hayfever, it pretty much disappears after I see her. She is also one of the warmest, kindest people I’ve ever met.
I first met Marina when she helped me with an excruciating pain in my shoulder. Marina was able to heal the pain after only a couple of sessions. I then revisited Marina when I was pregnant and she supported me through the final weeks of pregnancy. She is a fantastic therapist and I have complete faith and trust in the treatment that she provides.
