Daniel Gorvett, acupuncturist Barnstaple.


Now an important part of allied health in the UK, Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine offers a holistic approach to the management of disease and the preservation of health. One's health is dependent on various internal mechanisms of the body such as the immune system or endocrine system functioning properly.

There are many factors that can upset the body's internal regulation in these areas such as stress, poor diet, injury and infection.  By inserting and manipulating fine needles into channels at specific points acupuncture creates a stimulating effect and can help improve the function of immunity, repair and hormonal imbalances.

Client Testimonial

A few years ago I was told I had heredity glaucoma. The pressure had been building up in my eyes. So I have to be seen regularly at the hospital, but I decided to get other help. For me acupuncture was the way to go, combined with Qigong exercises. Well, I am thrilled to report that the pressures are now down to normal. I believe that keeping the natural flow of energy in the body is very important and acupuncture and Tai Chi helped me do this. Thank you Dan for helping and I recommend others to use these treatments.
