Welcome to Chinese Medicine Bristol's official blog! Here, Acupuncture and TCM pracitioner Sandra Arbelaez will share information about Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine, how they work, and the latest research and developments related to TCM. You will also find knowledge and ideas on how to enjoy a full, healthy life that she has picked up over the course of 15 years of exploring the world of natural health


The contents of this blog are based on what I have learnt about Traditional Chinese Medicine over the last 17 years first as a recipient of treatments and then as a practitioner.

Chinese Medicine was the one thing that finally turned my health in the right direction, and opened my eyes to the endless possibilities of life, during my own process of healing from the chronic renal failure I developed aged 24, which stopped me on my tracks two years later. I have also explored many other traditions of natural health and benefited enormously from nutrition, Yoga, Bach Flower Remedies, and from delving into the spiritual dimension of health and healing. I am thus sharing ideas born from a blend of inspiring and knowledgeable authors and practitioners, spiritual traditions, and from my own experience as a patient and as a practitioner.
