Claire Truss is an acupuncturist, naturopath and herbalist, located in her own clinic, on the edge of Epping Forest in Loughton.
Claire’s approach to health is through natural medicines, primarily acupuncture and herbs (Chinese Herbal Medicine) as part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) with the addition of naturopathy, where appropriate.
Every patient is treated as a whole person (body & mind), with the intention of bringing the person back into a state of balance, advancing your wellbeing and achieving your full health potential.
Claire sees people across a broad spectrum of symptoms.
