Welcome to Our Website - North London Acupuncture
Holistic Health and Healing is a long established practice providing acupuncture in north London and a wide variety of therapeutic massage therapies. In addition to a private clinic in Finchley, we offer our services from a variety of other well established clinics in the North London area. Our North London Acupuncture website provides information and guidance on how acupuncture can benefit you.
We offer a comprehensive service for those who wish to combat physical and emotional problems via an alternative route.
Western culture has become increasingly aware of the risks of chemically aided treatments; however by choosing holistic methods you are harnessing the body’s natural resources, therefore inducing the healing process naturally and at a pace that is in tune with your physical makeup.
We offer the following services from various clinics in the North London area:
- Tui Na Chinese massage
- Manual lymphatic drainage
- Myofascial release
- Sports & remedial massage
- Swedish massage
- Therapeutic massage
Each treatment is designed specifically tor the individual, and highlights the troublesome areas whilst providing an overall healing effect to leave you feeling revitalised and full of positive energy.
We all know that every person can undergo similar if not identical symptoms but our framework is always slightly different so we have to alter things to accommodate a subjective basis.
Holistic methods aim to do this non-invasively and effectively, getting to the root of the cause, not just the surface level including reviewing and providing dietary advice.
Our website, North London Acupuncture, has proved to be a valuable source of information for anyone wanting to find out about the benefits of acupuncture.
We have a weekly blog page where you can read latest trends and articles on acupuncture, and you can contact our therapist, Monica Daswani with your questions.
Visit some of our web pages to find out more about our services and how acupuncture can help you.
If you would like to find out more, why not give us a call to see how we can help.
We look forward to hearing from you.
“I suffered from severe foot pain in 2006. Having unsuccessfully tried physiotherapy, podiatry & painkilling tablets, I went to Mrs Daswani for acupuncture treatment. The pain disappeared after 2/3 treatments! The ankle was healed and I could resume playing golf and tennis soon thereafter. Since then two of my friends have visited Mrs Daswani with various (shoulder, heel etc) problems and have resumed sporting activities after only a few treatments. I would strongly commend Monica Daswani to those seeking relief from aches and pains from injuries or other conditions.” BD, Lullington Garth, London
“I have been seeing Monica for Tuina for the last 4 years on a regular basis. I find it useful to improve my circulation and help the pain in my aching heavy legs.” RZ, Hendon
I have been to regular acupuncture therapy for five years and find it very beneficial. When I first started I had been in constant facial pain for over three months, which no medicines could seem to cure, so I looked at alternative therapies. After the first acupuncture session I was free of 80% pain and following a few more, I was pain free. My health has generally improved and my energy levels are kept high. Recently I experienced a trapped nerve in my spine which caused bad pain and a numbness in one leg down to my knee. Acupuncture cured the pain and numbness over a few visits. My therapist is always kind and gentle. The room is always comfortable and warm, which with the music makes the sessions very relaxing.” FG, Barnet
“I am a solicitor and deal with litigation work. I am the principal of my practice, Proctor Moore Solicitors in Winchmore Hill, London, N21. I often face many situations that require focus and high level of concentration. Also, as I am dealing with many complicated and demanding cases which has an affect on my stress levels both physically and mentally. The last place that I would have resorted for treatment would have been acupuncture but after some research I thought this form of medicine may not be a bad idea. I commenced acupuncture treatment with Monica in June 2007 and it has had a positive affect on my life both at work and at home. My stress levels are now controlled. My blood pressure and breathing is normal and I tend to look at stressful situations in a different context. A further breakthrough in the treatment was for hayfever. My symptoms were so bad that I had to take time off work. I had 4 treatments and the symptoms dissolved. I do not even need antihistamine tablets or other medication. Should you think about commencing treatment I would recommend Monica. There are other acupuncturists but I am unable to recommend the service they provide. Monica is professional, considerate and treated my case very seriously. She always kept a note of my progress and was able to cross reference to previous weeks and monitor my condition.” XA, Winchmore Hill
“At the age of 22 I was told by a doctor at a hospital that my promising career of being a HR professional was over. I was diagnosed with a trapped ulna nerve in my right arm, which resulted in swelling to my arm, intense shooting pains and I lost all movement in my hand. Due to over reliance and strain in my left arm, over time resulted in limited use of both my arms. I had just started a new job and was obviously very distressed to have to give it up. So desperate was I to try to turn this around, I spent many months seeing a private physio. However with no avail. I then had a number of treatments on the NHS but still there was no improvement in my condition. I was told that the only option left was to have an operation that was 20% succesful and could have irreversible consequences. I then turned to alternative medicines where I was recommended Monica. Monica used a variety of techniques over 3 months and was able to advise on ways to improve my general health to prevent this problem from reoccurring. During that 3 months I saw dramatic changes. Initially the swelling started to come down and the pain began to subside. I was soon able to start using my arms and my hands. This was a great triumph emotionally and physically for me. It meant that I was able to get my life back on track from opening a bag of crisps to getting a great job! I really do have Monica to thank for this and would strongly recommend her to anyone!” Carly, Finchley
“My first session with Monica was in October 2007 after experiencing a lengthy period of stress, fatigue, and sinus pressure. Following a thorough assessment she identified the cause of my symptoms and recommended a course of treatment. I started that day and after the first session I could start to feel the pressure in my head release. Monica not only used acupuncture to help but also incorporated food changes in my diet, which helps over time if you stick to it. Monica is an excellent acupuncturist; her beaming smile and caring manner start making you feel better before you have the treatment. I recommend people who have the treatment to stick to the advised treatment plan. I do come for maintenance check-ups to help keep my body functioning at its best because it\’s much easier to keep your health than to get you healthy. I would like to give a special thanks to Monica for helping me change my health, which has lead to a better lifestyle.” Dr JM, Finchley
“Monica has been my acupuncturist for a long time. What keeps me coming back is her professionalism and her ability to connect intuitively with her clients\’ needs. Acupuncture has been a life saviour for me where orthodox and other alternative treatments have failed my constant back and shoulder pain. It has helped energised me when my energy level has been low. Coupled with Moxabustion it can promote a deeply relaxed state, release deep tension in the body and allow the body to heal in its own time. Sometimes all it takes are 2 or 3 sessions to relieve weeks of pain and discomfort.” M-Y – Healer, Finchley
