New Community Health Project

Last year I announced my involvement in a new community health project.

Unfortunately, Covid-19 restrictions delayed our plans to open in January. With the easing of restrictions, we are excited to able to plan a launch date for Health Tree. With all being well we intend to open our doors on 17th May to welcome the local community to access our community acupuncture clinic from 10 am - 1 pm.

The Health Tree will be offering services to the local community, creating a hub of integrated health and arts activities.

My involvement is to offer a community acupuncture clinic in collaboration with Bodywise Natural Health at St Margarets House in Bethnal Green.

What is Community Acupuncture then?  

Community Acupuncture offers gentle, ethical, and affordable solutions to pain, stress, and illness. 

The clinic will be run by myself and fellow acupuncturist Andrew Burton. We both passionately believe that high-quality, affordable healthcare should be accessible to all and free from financial, social, or geographical barriers.  

The Health Tree Community Acupuncture Clinic will be a multi-bed clinic. This allows us to treat a number of people in the same room while protecting privacy, dignity, and confidentiality. Furthermore, it will also give us the opportunity to offer treatments at an affordable rate. 

A multi-bed clinic will be able to serve the local community with access to acupuncture treatments that effectively treat a wide range of symptoms. Effective treatment for chronic pain or stress-related illness can have a profound effect on many people, this will obviously have a knock-on effect on overall wellbeing.

We're really excited about the project and the ideas we have for the future to support the health and wellbeing of the local community.

The team are looking forward to welcoming you to an oasis of calm to support your health.
