"Tom is my favourite therapist in Bristol!! He is extremely intuitive and knowledgable which gives me utmost confidence when I'm explaining my latest physical issues. What can sometimes feel complicated on my arrival, Tom will have simplified and set the healing in motion by the time I leave."

S.H. - Bristol

"Tom's calm and professional approach is very reassuring and he is always willing to give additional suggestions that may help."

A.S. - Devon

"Tom's warm professional approach left me in no doubt that I would be in good hands, both figuratively and literally! His enthusiasm for and knowledge of Chinese medicine resulted in a comprehensive analysis of my problem and a treatment plan in which I had every confidence. I always felt able to ask any questions or note any observations along the way, and these were listened to and used to make adjustments and fine tune as necessary. I can't recommend Tom highly enough!"

K.S. - Bristol

"I would not hesitate to recommend acupuncture generally, and Tom in particular as he is a sensitive and gentle practitioner."

J.C. - London

"Tom's treatments have seen me through some very difficult times, increasing a sense of wellbeing and calm and a sense of hope. He is unfailingly sensitive, calm, positive and empathetic and I cannot imagine my life without the weekly needles. In addition he is highly intelligent, reading widely on health matters and embarking on further training."

S.T. - Bristol

"Having little prior experience of acupuncture I soon realised how skilled and knowledgable Tom was in his field. His manner alone is soothing and durring treatments I would feel comfortable and relaxed. I cannot recommend his services more highly."

S.C. - Bristol

"It's Tom's holistic approach - he is a gloriously listening person, and his needles and massage have affected me - body, mind, spirit - in a mysterious (and to several close and observant friends) clearly visible way: "centered, attentive, calm, listening - even (at times) peaceful"."

N.B. - Bristol

"...a most interesting presentation, that was delivered clearly and with humour."

Wendy Rarity - in the AACP Annual Conference Journal 2011, reviewing Tom's presentation at the conference

NEIJING STUDIES

Beginning in early 2014, Tom has been studying the techniques and principles described in the Hunagdi Neijing, the ancient text that is widely considered the foundation of Chinese medicine.  This is challenging and ongoing work, and has changed Tom's perspective on the nature and potential of his work.

The Practice Rooms

As of June 2106, The Natural Health Clinic in Cotham will be managed by The Practice Rooms.  There will no longer be a receptionist, so all bookings should be made direct with Tom from June onwards.
