Traditional Chinese Medicine (Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine and Fertility acupuncture) in St. Albans, HertfordshireTraditional Chinese Medicine (Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine) is part of a complete oriental medical system that is used to diagnose, treat and prevent illnesses. Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine have been used for over 3000 years and have withstood the test of time, primarily because of its proven effectiveness. The use of needles inserted in specific points in the body and the use of natural herbs allow many patients to seek help in a natural way.

What my patients say - Recently added patient's story
My sessions with Kyoko were calming and healing - physically as well as emotionally. I could feel my energy, hormones and body being re-balanced and restored as the weeks went by. I fell pregnant after the third month and our beautiful baby girl is now coming up to 2 years old! My husband noticed the change in my physical and emotional well-being so much that he also went for some acupuncture sessions for his own relaxation and stress relief! I would certainly recommend Kyoko for anyone who is thinking of conceiving, to restore balance to their systems and create the best environment in their body to welcome a baby.
Mrs Allen, St Albans (full story)
I had been suffering with IBS for about two years before I contacted Kyoko. I had got to the stage where my life had become severely restricted. I had to cut down my work hours, and it wasn't possible for me to make any commitments away from home. Most days I had nausea, diarrhea and I felt extremely fatigued.----------It has been ten months since my first session with Kyoko and I'm now at the stage where I feel healthy most days, and I can live a normal life The acupuncture and Chinese medicine, combined with Kyoko's advice and support have made a real difference to me. Sam, Hitchin (Sam's full story)
I had been to Harley Street for investigation but I felt like a number rather than a human being going through pain and heartache as I watched everyone else have children but Kyoko always made me feel like a human being in her sessions.-------------Thanks to Kyoko's help, my husband and I were blessed with a healthy baby boy on the 21st February 2016, I am not sure would be here without Kyoko's help and I cannot recommend her enough and I would not hesitate to use her again.

I look forward to acupuncture by practitioner - Kyoko Durnall, every week (now fortnightly), as I find it such a calming, soothing and bodily informative experience.------------If you could see me (my hands and body) now in comparison to a few months ago. If you are also suffering from chronic eczema and have tried all conventional medicine and it has failed you too - don't think twice, give her a ring. Mary, Harpenden (Mary's full story)
