Welcome to Martin Bailey Acupuncture
Treatment for body, mind and spirit
Acupuncture is safe, holistic and complimentary to conventional medical treatments. As a fully qualified practitioner and member of the British Acupuncture Council, I am trained to treat a wide spectrum of conditions, from muscles and joints right through to mental health issues.
Covid 19 update:
Open through lockdown, but only for conditions that would otherwise worsen without treatment, or where the condition is causing mental or physical distress. If you have any condition that could wait until after lockdown, please do so.
For your safety:
I will be allowing time between appointments to disinfect between patients.
I will also be wearing a mask and I ask that my customers also wear one. It is required to enter Charlton Medical Centre, unless you have medical reasons not to wear one.
Due to the nature of my work, I cannot wear gloves, but will ensure ample hand washing and alcohol sanitation.
Please don't book if you are clinically vulnerable or have any Covid 19 symptoms or recent contacts.
What is Acupuncture?
A complementary medicine, originating in China over two thousand years ago, using very fine needles, inserted at specific points to stimulate your own natural healing. Traditionally, this is related to the concept of energetic medicine and the manipulation of Qi along channels.
Research has shown that acupuncture directly affects brain function, blood flow and endorphin release and this may explain the effectiveness of acupuncture from a modern perspective.
Most importantly, Acupuncture does work and I see this every day in my clinics.
Most find treatment pain free, but at worst the needles cause a minor and fleeting discomfort. It is also rare for there to be any side effects, usually confined to tiredness on the day of your treatment or occasionally a minor and short lived exacerbation of symptoms.
Occasionally, only a single treatment is necessary, but usually more are required, but you should be noticing improvements within 4 treatments if acupuncture is going to be successful.
Conditions that I regularly treat:
Muscles and joints. Most commonly backs, necks, shoulders and knees, but any joint can be treated.
Headaches and migraines
Infertility and menstrual disorders such as painful and irregular periods
Dizziness and balance
After 20 years I've treated a huge range of conditions, so contact me to find out if I can help.
Initially qualified as a Radiographer in the NHS, I started training as a Traditional Acupuncturist in 2000 and qualified after 3 years study at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine (CICM) in Reading with the Licentiate in Acupuncture (Lic Ac). I am also a member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC), which upholds the highest standards of practice for acupuncturists in the UK.
Since 2003, I have been working at the Charlton Medical Centre in Telford. I also have a dedicated clinic room at my home in Gnosall, where I can treat out of office hours.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Have been seeing Martin for a back problem recently and as a fellow runner he appreciated my need to keep running. He is approachable and professional, he was quickly able to identify the problem and suggest a course of action. Luckily I've found the treatment has been helpful.
Cassandra, St Georges
Professional. Knowledgable. Informative. Skilled! Really helped me. Can't recommend enough.
After having a lot of upper arm pain due to a tendon snap, martin gave me 4 sessions of acupunture. The pain had just about gone. The pain I had before was really bad, had me in tears, I couldn't sleep. Now it just feels like muscle aches. I've still got limited movements but very little pain
