Welcome to Dove Therapies, the acupuncture and massage practice of Paloma Sparrow in Stroud and Nailsworth.

Acupuncture has been used for over two thousand years to address specific health problems and improve health and well-being. Traditional acupuncture approaches the person as a whole, seeing problems within the context of that person's overall health and and tailoring treatment to the individual.

I have been practising acupuncture for 20 years, using massage where appropriate for musculo-skeletal problems. I treat a wide range of conditions and have particular experience in women’s health and treating children. As well as being effective people find acupuncture to be relaxing and restorative. Where appropriate, I provide my clients with the tools to support their own health, using for example, postural awareness and the common-sense lifestyle and nutritional advice of Chinese medicine.

I also offer massage as a treatment in its own right. If you are not sure which treatment you would prefer or would be best for you, I can work with you to find what will be most appropriate for your needs. I practice from Stroud, Nailsworth and Bristol with both daytime and evening appointments available.

I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) and as a BAcC acupuncturist am on a register accredited by the Professional Standards Authority. I am also a member of the Acupuncture Fertility Network (AFN).
