A London-based acupuncture clinic that focuses on anxiety and insomnia
People have been turning to acupuncture to reduce anxiety and improve sleep for thousands of years. Today, there is a growing body of empirical evidence to support these choices. Acupuncture is also very effective in treating related issues, such as migraine headaches, chronic pain, and digestive problems. Patients report feeling much calmer immediately after each session. Most see consistent improvement in their symptoms within two months.
What Clients Say
"After falling into stress-induced insomnia I tried all of the usual tricks but nothing seemed to help. I was emotional, irritable, irrational, angry and ultimately my personal and professional life was unraveling. I found Inbal through my hours of insomnia research and decided to give it a go. I had never tried acupuncture before and was slightly skeptical, but desperate. The sessions were very professional, tailored to my needs, and very effective. I really appreciated Inbal's sincerity and genuine concern for my situation. After a few weeks I felt much more in tune with my body, more able to cope with my anxiety and stress, and slowly I began to sleep again. There is no one insomnia cure for everyone, however I feel Inbal was very instrumental in helping me work through my issues. I would highly recommend her to anyone suffering from insomnia!"
"I have had issues with insomnia, fatigue, anxiety and depression. I have been working on these issues for some time. This year, I decided to try alternative methods to help me deal with these issues. I reached out to Inbal for her help.
I have found the experience very rewarding and relaxing. Inbal takes the time to understand your history, motivation and problems. She then devises a strategy to deal with the problems. She adapts her strategy as the sessions proceed which I found very helpful.
Each session has Shiatsu and Acupuncture. By combining these practices, I found my body and mind react positively to the practices. I am more relaxed and calmer after each session.
I would recommend Inbal to anyone who wants an understanding and engaging therapist."

Each session includes both acupuncture and Shiatsu, and in some cases, Chinese herbs are prescribed in addition. However, it is possible to request only one particular service. Here's a bit more about each of these practices:
Acupuncture is one of the essential elements of Chinese medicine and the oldest, most commonly used medical procedure in the world.
Acupuncture is the stimulation of specific points on the body, by insertion of very fine, sterile, stainless steel needles to elicit a predictable physiological response.
Shiatsu is a highly relaxing form of Japanese physiotherapy. It can serve as a stand-alone treatment, or enhance the effects of acupuncture.
During a Shiatsu massage, pressure is applied with either the thumb or the palm of the hand, across the whole body, while the patient is fully clothed. The pressure is not too light and not too deep, it is just right!
Chinese herbal medicine is a safe way of getting better and faster results. It is usually applied alongside acupuncture.
The practitioner uses several diagnostic tools to achieve an accurate diagnosis and prescribe individually tailored herbal formulas. The herbs come in the form of powder, and they need to be mixed in water and consumed daily until symptoms have improved.
