Qi is considered the essence of life and flows through invisible channels in the body. It’s an acupuncturist’s belief that illness and pain occur in the body when Qi cannot flow freely, creating an imbalance. Common reasons for this could be physical or emotional stress, poor nutrition, overwork, infection or injury. Acupuncture seeks to restore balance and trigger the body’s natural healing response and improve wellbeing.

At Blue Wren Acupuncture clinic, we have a particular interest in three key areas:

  • acupuncture for women’s health including supporting those who are undergoing fertility or IVF treatments, and during pregnancy to help manage symptoms such as pregnancy-related pain and morning sickness.
  • acupuncture to assist with the management of pain, with tailored plans to manage chronic pain that may be causing fatigue or depression.
  • acupuncture for stress relief.

You can book acupuncture treatments when you need assistance with the management of pain, stress and symptoms relating to a range of health conditions. For more information, visit our acupuncture page or call our Acupuncture clinic.

Chinese Medicine

As part of the larger traditional Chinese medicine healing system, Chinese herbal medicines are used as both a stand-alone treatment method and to supplement acupuncture treatments.

The herbal formulas are made up of many herbs and are specifically prescribed for the individual, taking into account their symptoms, stage of illness and many other factors.

For more information, visit our Chinese herbal medicine page.


Cupping is an ancient physical therapy often used during an acupuncture treatment or as a stand-alone treatment for a number of conditions.

It involves applying suction to the skin using special cups to encourage the flow of Qi, blood and body fluids to the area. At Blue Wren Acupuncture we use the traditional Chinese method of fire cupping.

For more information, visit our Cupping page.

Gua Sha Massage

Blue Wren Acupuncture Brighton East also offers gua sha massage.

The technique used for a gua sha massage stimulates blood flow in the muscles and along fascia and aims to move Qi and blood that is not flowing properly and release heat from the body.

For more information, visit our gua sha massage page.

Dry Needling

Dry needling is a treatment by which a practitioner inserts sterile, single-use, fine filament needles (as used in acupuncture) into a muscle to release myofascial trigger points (muscle knots) to improve muscle function and decrease pain.
