Eden Clinic is a multi disciplinary clinic that has been treating patients since opening in 2004. Our range of practitioners, in addition to the acupuncturist, includes a chiropodist, osteopath, physiotherapist, nutritionist and herbalist, counsellors (specialising in treating children as well as adults) and chiropractic.
A number of our practitioners see patients with private health insurance and benefit from referrals from other specialists.
We are open 6 days a week with some late night weekday appointments available.
Acupuncture techniques have been used for over 2,000 years. Although refined and adapted over the centuries, it has retained a simplicity which is still applicable today. Acupuncture was thought by the Ancient Chinese to alter energy flow through a system of channels or meridians which course through the body. The Chinese believe that the circulation of this energy or life force (‘Chi’) influences health and well-being. Although the precise mechanism is unclear, it is probable that Acupuncture exerts an effect through the central nervous system. By the stimulation of very fine nerves which run beneath the skin it is possible to modify nerve impulses to the spinal cord and brain. This may facilitate the release of certain chemical transmitters, thereby easing many symptoms for which Acupuncture can be effective. Adam is a partner at Eden Clinic, which is a complementary health therapy centre based in Barnet, North London, that was established in 2004 by Adam and his partner/chiropodist who were passionate practitioners recognising the need for a broad based, professionally run practice available to the local and surrounding communities, at prices that were fair and affordable whatever the age group.
