Dr Sun offers both Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture at The Natural Practice medical clinics in Winchester on Mondays and Thursdays.
"I was in a car accident 2 years ago and have tried every therapy under the sun for the pain and movement restrictions it caused. Physio, massage, sports massage, exercises, strength retraining - nothing worked and I thought I would be in pain forever. However, after receiving acupuncture treatment from Dr Sun, relief was IMMEDIATE and after a full course of treatment, my full movement was restored and I now no longer feel the pain that had been constant since the accident. I can't recommend acupuncture enough! And Dr Sun is an expert. No pain from needle insertion and no pain from an accident I can now fully put behind me. Worth every penny."
