Rachel McGrath


Rachel McGrathThrough gentle and relaxing acupuncture and other Traditional Chinese Medicine techniques, my aim is to help you consistently move upwards towards your health goals. I am extremely passionate about the work I do, and enjoy seeing people fulfil their potential through acupuncture and Chinese medicine.

I work with only one patient per session so you get my full attention and time.

Acupuncture can help a range of conditions from pain, OOS and migraines, to asthma, digestive disorders, stress, depression and addictions.

My particular interest and experience is in supporting women and men with fertility healthcare, whether natural or by assisted reproductive technologies. Acupuncture can address specific fertility problems such as PCOS, endometriosis, recurrent miscarriage and sperm disorders.
During pregnancy I can help with problems that may arise such as nausea, pain, anxiety, high blood pressure, breech/posterior positions and preparing the mother for labour, known as pre-birth treatments. Following from this I can assist in post-natal health.

I have a young family myself, and paediatric acupuncture can be wonderful and safe for small babies and childhood issues.
I am also trained in Cosmetic Facial Acupuncture which aims to address complexion and fine lines through stimulating blood flow to the face, increasing fluid metabolism and drainage, balancing hormones and stimulating facial muscle fibres.
