Acupuncture Therapist in Northwood
About Quyen Tran – (Acupuncture Therapist)
“As a fully qualified acupuncturist, I graduated from the International College of Oriental Medicine (ICOM), where I achieved a Bachelor of Science Degree in Oriental Medicine. I have been practicing for over 5 years in the UK. I am a registered Member of British Acupuncture Council (MBAcC).
The type of acupuncture that I practice is a classic style called Stems and Branches, which considers a patient’s own constitutional strengths and weakness. By tailoring a treatment to suit the individual needs it treats the root cause of the condition rather than the symptoms,
I also practice facial acupuncture for facial rejuvenation, promoting Qi flow and improved collagen. This reduces fine lines and wrinkles to achieve a healthier looking skin.
I grew up in Southern Vietnam, in Ho Chi Minh City where I was surrounded by Traditional Chinese Medicine. I also worked alongside Doctors at a Chinese hospital, near Shanghai in China and studied Tui Na at Asante where I was awarded a diploma degree”.

For centuries, Moxibustion and acupuncture have been combined in clinical practice.

Cupping is an ancient and effective therapeutic approach, which involves attaching small glass or bamboo suction jars to the skin, which are held on by creating a vacuum. This eases local congestion, helps Qi flow and can reduce stiffness in muscles.
What is Tui Na?
Tui Na is a soothing acu-pressure massage. It uses a number of traditional hand movements to massage the soft tissue and some gentle manipulations to realign the flow of energy around the body.

Gua Sha is an ancient Chinese and Vietnamese treatment is a ‘scraping of the skin’, through repeated pressure strokes over a lubricated area using a smooth edge.
It is designed to stimulate the flow of Qi and blood and to stimulate healing.
