Neurological Health

I am committed to providing evidence-based Acupuncture treatments that address a wide range of neurological conditions. By combining traditional techniques with modern research, I offer holistic and effective solutions for stress, anxiety, insomnia, addictions, migraines, and headaches. My goal is to support your neurological health and enhance your overall well-being through the power of Acupuncture.

Stress, Anxiety, and Insomnia

Conditions Treated:

– Chronic stress

– Generalised anxiety disorder (GAD)

– Panic attacks

– Insomnia and sleep disturbances

Treatment Approach:

Acupuncture works by stimulating the body’s natural healing processes, improving blood flow, and balancing the nervous system. For stress and anxiety, acupuncture helps regulate the autonomic nervous system, reducing the body’s stress response and promoting relaxation. For insomnia, it aids in balancing circadian rhythms and enhancing sleep quality. Studies have shown that Acupuncture can significantly reduce symptoms of anxiety and improve sleep quality, providing a non-pharmacological alternative for managing these conditions.

NADA Protocol

Conditions Treated:

– Substance abuse (alcohol, drugs)

– Smoking cessation

– Behavioral addictions (e.g., gambling, over-eating)

– Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), stress and Anxiety

Treatment Approach:

The NADA (National Acupuncture Detoxification Association) protocol is a widely used Acupuncture treatment for addiction recovery and treating people who suffer from PTSD, stress and anxiety. The protocol activates the parasympathetic nervous system that counteracts the fight and flight response. It involves the insertion of fine needles into specific points on the ear, which helps to reduce cravings, alleviate withdrawal symptoms, and promote emotional balance. The NADA protocol has been supported by research demonstrating its effectiveness in reducing addiction severity and enhancing recovery outcomes .

Migraines and Headaches

Conditions Treated:

– Migraines

– Tension headaches

– Cluster headaches

Treatment Approach:

Acupuncture is highly effective in managing migraines and headaches by reducing the frequency, intensity, and duration of episodes. It works by modulating pain pathways, decreasing inflammation, and promoting relaxation. Research has shown that Acupuncture can provide significant relief for migraine sufferers and is recommended by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) for the treatment of tension-type headaches and migraines. NICE guidelines highlight Acupuncture as a beneficial and safe treatment option for these conditions.

Tracey helped me to heal and find my strength again during a period of un-health. My main symptom was headaches and migraines. Over the course of treatment the headaches became less frequent and the migraines stopped completely allowing me to return to a more normal life. Tracey’s guidance didn’t just stop with the acupuncture. With her holistic approach she even wrote a list of triggers from foods to consider which helped achieve good results and she educated me along the way.“
