Eden Herbs acupuncture clinic

We won’t be offering acupuncture treatments from the 10th of December till the 3rd of January, but deep tissue massage and hot cupping will still be available. We thank you for your understanding.

Our holistic approach

The Chinese theory of health diagnosis is very different to a Western approach and is founded on the principles of balancing Yin and Yang and establishing a smooth flow of Qi and blood around the body and organs. Illness occurs when there is an imbalance of Yin and Yang and stagnation of Qi and/or blood.

Many factors can contribute to this imbalance, including stress and emotions. Eden Herbs aims to focus on the entire mind and body, seeking a combination of treatments to address these emotional and physical ailments.

Services offered

Specialising in infertility, IVF, cancer aftercare, remedial/sports massage, severe back pain, stress, depression, skin problems, weight loss and much more!

Gentle Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a form of alternative medicine that has been practised in the Far East for thousands of years. This ancient Chinese medicine-based approach to treating a variety of conditions by triggering specific points on the skin with thin needles to stimulate the body’s own healing response and help restore its natural balance. Acupuncture is a fantastic option to treat everything from aching muscles to everyday stress and anxiety.

Traditional Chinese Medicine

TCM has been used to diagnose, treat, and prevent illnesses for more than 5,000 years. The key principles are the balance of Yin and Yang, and the flow of energy known as Chi. Any disharmony of Yin and Yang or Chi flow blockage will lead to illness or imbalances in the body. Our goal is to help you restore this imbalance so your body can again function as it should.

Hot Cupping

Cupping is an ancient therapy that uses cups placed on your back to create negative pressure, allowing blood and Qi energy to flow much more freely through your body than previously. This non-invasive treatment is great for improving the health of your vital organs and reducing inflammation. Consider it a one-stop anti-inflammatory treatment for all your aches and pains.

I visit Dr Eve and the team at Eden herbs on a regular basis now as it has worked wonders for my health. I have a very physical job and was starting to feel tired, worn out and ageing faster than usual. The treatments of massage, acupuncture and herbal remedies have balanced me physically, mentally and emotionally to the point where I’m no longer tired or feeling down. Chinese medicine is fascinating and truly wonderful. I’d highly recommend speaking to Dr Eve if you don’t feel yourself.

Dr Eve and her team at Eden Herbs are truly miracle workers. I went to Dr Eve to try and cope with my ME symptoms that were so debilitating that I was unable to work or socialise. I have been having acupuncture, Chinese massage, taking medicine and herbs for around three weeks now and I already feel so much better. I have had days where I truly felt like my old self again, which is all down to Dr Eve. I would 100000% recommend Eden Herbs to anybody looking to improve their physical or mental well-being. Thank you to Dr Eve and the team ❤️

I came across Eve and her team last year when looking at balancing my hormones and hoping to try to conceive after many many years on contraception. After a few failed months of doing so before coming to Eve I was ready to try everything. Eve explained to me how the body works and why my hormones were off and what I could do to get them balanced again. I did four weeks of Chinese herbal tea, acupuncture and reflexology and not only did I balance my hormones but successfully managed to conceive naturally. We have recently welcomed our beautiful baby boy into the world and I honestly feel this wouldn’t have been possible without Eden herbs advice and treatment. I am forever grateful for everything they did for me and my new little family. I recommend Eden herbs to everyone as they offer such a wide variety of treatments, I was still keeping up the reflexology when heavily pregnant! It is a very calming environment and you always leave feeling that bit lighter. Thank you so much for all your help and changing my mindset on how to tune into my body!

I visited the clinic to treat burn out. Dr. Eve is wonderful. It was my first acupuncture experience and I felt the improvement straight away. Through attending once a week for treatment I fully recovered and I now attend for maintenance and I look forward to visiting the clinic. Thank you Eve and to all the team at Eden Herbs.

I have been visiting Dr Eve for several months now and feel so much better. I am constantly amazed at how she can tell whether I'm tired or low on energy simply by checking my pulse and tongue.My migraine headaches have disappeared, and my energy levels are much improved. At my last session, Dr Eve untrapped my neck which had been causing me severe discomfort.I now go every week and it's guaranteed that I leave Eden Herbs feeling nourished and relaxed. Dr is highly passionate, dedicated and knowledgeable, and I could not recommend her more.

Dr.Eve is absolutely fabulous! She puts all her soul and energy into treating her patients and this is evident from the way in which she listens, responds and carries out all her treatments.My elderly aunty started going to her in 2018 and she feels better after every massage. It is as though Dr.Eve can 'see' the pain and targets those areas specifically. Unfortunately due to Covid she was unable to leave the house and she went back to Dr.Eve after about two years. The most amazing thing (apart from the massage itself!) was the fact that Eden Herbs still had our record on file and as we had paid in advance for the massages we were told that we still had one left! We truly appreciated their honesty as we had misplaced the card.Dr.Eve is incredibly caring and thoughtful and she treats all her patients with respect and kindness. Irene and David are equally polite and respectful (e.g. helping my aunty up from her chair when she has been unable to stand up with ease or getting her a footstool to access the massage bed.)We have been very lucky to find their clinic! On the days when my aunty is unwell and unable to attend her appointments, she really misses them and looks forward to her next session. Dr.Eve is always understanding and accommodating - always rearranging with a lot of empathy and kindness, even at short notice!Thank you for all your hard work and kindness!We look forward to seeing you again soon!

My colleague recommend I come to Eden herbs for a consultation for varies different reasons so I visited the clinic and met Dr Eve who immediately understood me and made me feel seen for the first time in years. Dr Eve has a heart of gold that shines through into her work and passion!! I had my first acupuncture session yesterday and already feel a million dollars. Highly recommend to anyone who needs holistic support with any of their needs! Can’t wait for my next session 🙂

I've joined Eden Herbs for months and found it great place for both clients  and staff. Doctor Eve is such a lovely lady who has great  passion for helping people. What impresses me most is, there are many clients  who  have been with this clinic for more than 10 years. A lady who received  her first treatment here 15 years ago, still comes regularly.  She says, Doctor Eve cares for every single patient  and her body tells.

After visiting Eden herbs I can highly recommend Dr Eve, Irene & David for the excellent service and the health benefits of their treatments. I strongly recommend a visit to them for health and well-being treatments. I experienced improved overall health, reduced fatigue, reduced aches and pains and improved energy and clarity of thinking! I would suggest that if possible sign up for a package of treatments (at least once a year) to maintain and improve overall health and well-being. I will be 😊

I have been with Eden Herbs for many years now and always had success with their natural and herbal treatments. Doctor Eve, Irene and David are excellent. Doctor Eve has helped me with various injuries and ailments, from problematic skin related to my hormones to muscle injuries. I have a current shoulder injury and have been seeing Dr Eve for 3 months , I have made a huge improvement and am nearly at the end of my treatment. Meanwhile, I am still waiting to hear from my current NHS.I have trust and patience in her treatments and recommendations. I will definitely be listening to her advice and treatment for when I enter the menopause years! I highly recommend her and all the team who I have received treatment from. Thank you Eden Herbs.
