Welcome to Nourishing Life Acupuncture

Welcome to the website of Justyna Górska.

AcupunctureI am an acupuncture practitioner with over 17 years’ experience, based in central London. I practise both Five Element and TCM acupuncture. I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council and the NHS Directory of Complementary and Alternative Practitioners.

I would like to invite you to have acupuncture treatment by exploring its remarkable and wide-ranging benefits.

Acupuncture is one of the oldest healing traditions in the world, dating back some 3000 or 4000 years. Using very fine needles inserted into specific points on the body, it aims to re-establish the smooth and harmonious flow of Qi (vital energy), thus restoring health and well-being.

AcupunctureAcupuncture stimulates the body’s self-healing ability and strengthens the natural vitality and in so doing it can help with a range of conditions. It can also alleviate stress and increase a sense of relaxation, which most people find difficult to maintain in our current way of life. Acupuncture can be used safely alongside conventional medicine and also works well as preventive treatment.

Over the years I have found that many patients, initially drawn to acupuncture for a specific ailment, continue with treatment to maintain their well-being.

As a holistic discipline, acupuncture treats the person rather than a disease, so you don’t have to have a ‘named’ condition or experience any specific symptoms to benefit from acupuncture. Many people come for treatment because they feel stressed or “out of balance” or have a vague sense of feeling unwell. Acupuncture is considered suitable for all ages including babies and children.

Because every person is unique, the diagnosis and treatment are individually tailored, taking into account not only the person’s symptoms, pulse and tongue picture as observed by the practitioner but also their dietary and lifestyle habits, social circumstances, the environment they live in, their emotional attitudes and many other relevant aspects.

My approach to acupuncture is rooted in the ancient tradition of Nourishing Life (Yang Sheng) and focuses on long lasting benefits, encouraging my patients to gain understanding of patterns and circumstances in their own lives. This, in turn, helps to create insight and confidence in what nourishes their own vitality and what depletes it. Through this insight the patient can actively participate in the healing process. This aspect of acupuncture treatment is vividly brought to life in my patients’ experiences.

It’s very important to me that every patient feels comfortable, safe and relaxed during treatment and I use a very gentle needling technique in my practice.
