Huw Griffiths Lic Ac . Graduated from the college of Traditional Acupuncture in 1991 and has been a practising Classical Five Element acupuncturist for over 20 years. Huw was the director of the Complete Health Care Clinic in the City of London and Co director of the Community Acupuncture Project in north London.
Huw currently practices acupuncture in Bath, Bristol and in Kensington, London.
Huw trained with Proffessor J.R Worsley a foremost teacher of Five Element Acupuncture which emphasises the importance of identifying and treating the underlying cause of the illness, not just the outward manifestation or symptom, in this way the body naturally heals itself.
Huw‘s acupuncture treatments have helped many people to recover their vitality and health and to make positive changes to their lifestyles. In his last practice, as director of The Complete Health Care in London’s City Road, his client base, largely made up of overworked, high achieving city executives gave him a unique insight into the impact on the body of today’s demanding lifestyles. Clients often presented some of the now common complaints of fatigue and tiredness, insomnia, anxiety, depression, digestive disorders, skin complaints and more distressingly for those trying to start families - infertility.The prevalence of these problems, led Huw to focus more specifically on the alleviation of this type of condition by looking at the root cause and helping to bring health and well being to the core of the individual.
Philosophical and spiritual subjects such as Taoism and Buddhism have been a strong inspiration in Huw’s life, and he has attended many teachings in support of his own personal meditation and mindfulness practice. Huw teaches simple meditation and mindfulness based techniques for stress reduction, and as a way for clients to further develop and improve their overall physical, mental and spiritual health.
Huw is a Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) teacher, trained to teach, at The centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice at The university of Wales, Bangor.
