Degree in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine from the College of Chinese Medicine

I am an Acupuncturist and trained in Chinese Herbal Medicine. I practise needle free acupuncture which is perfect for children and those who are not so keen on needles. This needle free approach which is done without ever needing to touch you. This came from my interest and passion for energy healing. This form of Acupuncture, without the need to penetrate or touch the skin surface, can seem to create even greater stimulation than needles themselves.

Needle free Acupuncture focuses on one area at a time and can help with releasing excesses from the body such as pressure in the head or limbs due to high blood pressure, increase flow of blood and energy to help speed up injury or post op recovery. It can also help you replenish energy to cold hands or cold feet and can open blockages in the meridian system (traditional Chinese medicine belief about a path through which the life-energy known as “qi” flows).  I also do Acupuncture with needles when it is appropriate.

I can help you with many common ailments with Acupuncture and alongside that I can incorporate Chinese herbs. If you are feeling generally under the weather and need energy boost the combination of Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs may be something new for you to experience and benefit from.

Chinese Herbal Medicine can have a vast array of effects on the body from nourishing and rejuvenating the skin or internal organs to activate and stimulate the adrenals. This can strengthen the digestive system and muscles allowing the body to function more efficiently. It can also be used to calm your mind, calm a persistent cough, clear heat from the body, head and neck.

People suffering from chronic fatigue (ME) have also benefitted greatly from my treatments. If you are struggling to do the day to day things that you need to do or are unable to do your job because of fatigue, then I can help you plan and achieve a staggered return-to-work program and prescribe herbal remedies to help you cope with daily life on going.

However, many conditions can be helped to varying degrees depending upon age, severity, and how long the condition has existed.  Here is a list of areas that Chinese medicine can help you with, however, I am more than happy to consult for conditions outside of this list:

  • Mental illnesses such as bi-polar/depression
  • Infertility, sexual dysfunction (I do not prescribe “herbal Viagra”, I provide “herbal health”
  • Cancer treatment and supporting the patient’s immune system as they go through chemotherapy or radiotherapy
  • Diabetes support
  • Insomnia
  • Amnesia and early stage Dementia
  • Muscular atrophy
  • Dizziness and fainting spells
  • Speeding up recovery from trauma or injury

If you are curious and would like to know more about a different approach to healing whatever is ailing you then give reception a call on 01462 490141 and I will be happy to call you to discuss your particular area of concern.

2 Minutes With Nick Jim

Why did you become a practitioner in Chinese Medicine?

I have always had an interest in the body and how it works.

What makes your job worthwhile?

Being able to help and make someone feel better; to help someone have that ‘light-bulb’ moment when they piece together all their symptoms and understand what I understand.

What is unique about how you work?

I want to educate my patients not just treat them. There is no black box when it comes to my approach to work. My custom-formulated herbal remedies that I administer are manufactured by Herbal Rebalancing in the form of tablets, thus making the experience of taking herbal medicine so much more pleasant and palatable that it otherwise could be.

Who has influenced you most in your career as a practitioner of Chinese Medicine?

I have credit this to The Universe, The Tao, God, Allah, Eloah – the many references to the same Source.

What’s the piece of advice do you give to your patients/clients most often?

It varies…it may be seasonal advice or lifestyle advice. It really does depend upon both the patient’s needs and it also depends upon my own personal development and understanding and discoveries that I have made.

What do you enjoy doing when you are not at work?

I like to unwind, relax and spend time with the family.
