I am passionate about Chinese Medicine and enjoy learning and developing my skills as an acupuncturist. It is important to me that all my patients feel comfortable and relaxed in a safe healing environment, and I aim to treat all my patients equally, and to the best of my skills
Darren Stoyle – Acupuncturist
Darren Stoyle (BSc (Hons), Lic Ac) – Acupuncture
I studied acupuncture to degree Level for 4 years at the internationally renowned College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading.
My initial training comprised of training in Traditional Chinese Medicine alongside Five Element acupuncture which are the most common styles practiced in the UK.
TCM, Five Element and Master-Tung style acupuncture
After graduating I discovered other styles of acupuncture that transformed the way I practised and the results I was getting with my patients. I have studied Master Tung acupuncture, (a traditional family style of acupuncture) with Philip Weeks and Susan Johnson. Because of the benefits I have witnessed using the Master Tung approach, this is now the main style I use in my clinic.
Benefits of Tung-style acupuncture
Tung acupuncture uses fewer needles, and incorporates many unique points specific to this style.
Needles are placed distally to where the problem may be, and can often result in immediate changes and pain reduction – often within seconds of needle insertion.
I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council and am bound by their strict code of Safe Practice and Professional Conduct and am fully insured.
I saw Darren as a last resort after suffering with sinusitis for years. I wish I’d thought about acupuncture as a remedy. Right from the first session I started to feel better and 3 months later I feel great and haven’t suffered with pain since!
What can I say…?
I have fibromyalg
Thank you Darren for giving me my life back! I had thought I would have to give up surfing for good. Thank you for giving the enjoyment in life back to me
Excellent service and very professional
After 4 months of suffering with tennis elbow and not being able to do my job properly, I thought I would try acupuncture to relieve the pain. After one treatment my pain disappeared and my elbow has been great ever since.
After many years of suffering with psoriasis, acupuncture has really helped me and my skin is almost clear now and I know acupuncture keeps it under control. I have more confidence and enjoy life a lot more. I also found the commonsense lifestyle advice that Darren gave me helped me to have more control over my condition.
