Ji-River Acupuncture offers treatments in Clifton, Redland and Cheltenham Road in Bristol with weekday, weekend and evening appointments available.

Both Lawrence and Ferne  (BSc Hons) are fully qualified in Traditional Chinese Medicine and also integrate the very important work of Japanese masters, using systematic diagnosis through palpation. This gives instant feedback to the patient and practitioner, as well as a measure as to the effectiveness of every treatment.
