Patti O’Brien – Exeter Quayside Acupuncture
When my children became teenagers, we moved into Exeter. Unfortunately, health problems took me to my GP whose solution seemed draconian, promising horrible side-effects. By lucky chance I opted to try acupuncture as an alternative and was wonderstruck by how treatment profoundly calmed my spirit along with healing my body.
So began my journey into Chinese medicine, a degree course at the prestigious College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading, ongoing post-graduate study and a busy life of clinics in Exeter, Taunton and Hemyock.
Anxiety and Depression
Across all species, fertility is closely linked to vitality, and I am particularly interested in this field of human health and have focussed post-graduate study into fertility for both men and women, whether from a stand-alone perspective or for supporting assisted fertility treatments such as IVF.
I am committed to this ongoing study program to help couples conceive, enjoy pregnancy and bring healthy babies into the world.
Facial Enhancement Acupuncture
I trained with Paul Adkins and am a registered Facial Enhance® practitioner. For more information please visit the website »
A single treatment can have dramatic effect, but generally a course of six to ten treatments is more usual, ideally weekly, after which a six–weekly top-up is recommended to maintain the effect.
