Claire Truss

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, and has special interests in women’s health (period, fertility, IVF and menopause) and pain.

For information about the research around what conditions acupuncture can treat, please see the British Acupuncture Council’s Fact Sheets.  For example, pain conditions supported by good research evidence are:

  • headaches & migraines
  • back pain
  • osteoarthritis of the knee
  • shoulder pain

(Please note that BAcC are currently undertaking a major review to update and broaden the information contained within the fact sheets.)

There is also growing research for the use of Chinese Herbal Medicine.  The RCHM, click here, provide details on research into:

  • IVF
  • virus
  • asthma
  • UTIs
  • general research
