Many people come to acupuncture for help with specific symptoms or to relieve specific pain like osteoarthritis of the knee. Some use acupuncture because they feel generally unwell but have no obvious diagnosis. Others choose acupuncture simple to enhance their feeling of wellbeing. Acupuncture is considered suitable for all ages including babies and children. It can be used effectively alongside conventional medicine.

Alan has been practising this wonderful system of medicine in the West End of Glasgow for the past 20 years. He has successfully helped patients with arthritis, back pain, stress, infertility, gynaecological problems, menopause, asthma, anxiety/depression, allergies headaches/migraine; sports injuries and digestive problems.

Alan trained at the College of Traditional Acupuncture in Leamington Spa founded by the late Professor J.R. Worsley (1923-2003) credited with bringing Five Element Acupuncture to the West.  He was a faculty member of the College of Traditional Acupuncture (Glasgow) in 1998. He is a member of the British Acupuncture Council (MBAcC) and the Natural Fertility Network (NFN) and for 5 years was an associate of the Natural Fertility Centre Edinburgh (NFC)

Alan has now become one of Scotland’s leading experts on Traditional Five Element Acupuncture and Fertility.

Traditional Five Element Acupuncture is a very specific style of acupuncture which teaches us that every human being has an innate ability to self-heal and return to full health. What makes this ancient system of medicine so uniquely suited to modern life is that physical, emotional and mental are seen as interdependent, and reflect what most people perceive as the connection between the different aspects of their lives.


"I have attended Alan for varies physical ailments over many years mainly done through sporting injuries. His acupuncture treatments enabled me to continue my active lifestyle and, I feel quickened the healing process and reduced the pain level. The last treatment from Alan was for a groin strain which after one treatment cleared up within a few days. I have no hesitation in recommending acupuncture as a most effective treatment and Alan as an extremely skilled practitioner."
