Acupuncture & Craniosacral Therapy in York. Online Chinese herbal medicine prescribing.

Acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine and Craniosacral therapy are incredibly powerful, safe healing modalities that offer a different perspective on health and illness – one that complements conventional medicine. They have helped millions of people the world over. I can use one of these therapies or a combination of all three to help you optimise your health and wellbeing.

I offer:

  • A wealth of experience – I have over 30 years of clinical experience and have trained in the UK, Europe and Asia, in many different styles of practice and techniques.  
  • A caring approach – Mindfulness resourcing techniques play an important role in my work to help my clients let go of stress and anxiety.
  • A holistic and truly complementary perspective – I look at the whole picture, listening carefully to my client’s illness story and considering all their symptoms to build a picture of imbalances where support is needed. I work with the body not against it. Our bodies have enormous wisdom and healing capacity – far greater than any physician’s.
  • Care from a registered practitioner – I am registered with the AAC (Association of Acupuncture Clinicians), which is part of the British Acupuncture Federation and the CSTA (Craniosacral Therapy Association). I am also registered with the ATCM (Association of Traditional Chinese Medicine) and a member of the Herbal Alliance, an umbrella organisation that brings herbal medicine practitioners together.
  • Care from a health practitioner with a deep understanding of the findings of clinical research – I have a PhD in Health Sciences.

“Sylvia is a lovely, thoughtful and intuitive person who makes a very careful diagnosis and prescribes a holistic treatment. The herbs she prescribed for me arrived in the post the day after my appointment and are very gentle and actually taste good! I can feel them gradually working for me already. With Chinese herbal medicine, the prescription is individual and is adjusted as you improve, dealing with every aspect of a condition until full health is restored, with no nasty or frightening side effects. I thoroughly recommend Sylvia and her online appointment service. Talking to her on Skype was almost like being in her clinic” (Catherine T. Kirkudbright, Scotland)

“I highly highly recommend Sylvia’s services, particularly for her knowledge and understanding on Chinese herbs and how they can support health. For several years I saw an acupuncturist back in Australia who also provided Chinese herbs for me each fortnight. These herbs definitely helped me in a number of ways, however there was never any improvement on my primary concern, which was regularly suffering headaches and migraines due an extreme intolerance to sugar, where even prescription pain killers would do little to ease the pain. However within a matter of weeks of seeing Sylvia online, she was able to create a formula for me that was amazing. After almost 8 years of weekly headaches and migraines, I now have so much more freedom to go about my day and not be crippled by pain in bed all day, and I owe it to Sylvia.” (Laura, Leeds)
