Welcome to Dove Therapies, the acupuncture 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 more than 20 years. I 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 practice from Stroud and Nailsworth with both daytime and evening appointments available. Where appropriate I can include some massage during an acupuncture treatment.

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).
