My name is Ian Dixon (Danapriya)and I am a dedicated, fully qualified, registered and highly experienced acupuncture practitioner, teacher and author with over 25 years experience in a busy clinic.

I studied for 3 years and graduated from the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in 1995 and have been on a Continued Professional Development programme since.     
I am a full member of the British Acupuncture Council.

I am trained in both styles of Acupuncture; Traditional Chinese Medicine and Five Element Acupuncture. Therefore I am able to comprehensively diagnose and treat whatever is going on for you, whether Emotional, Psychological or Physical. Such as Anxiety, Insomnia, Depression, Pain, Arthritis, Blood Pressure, Grief, Loneliness, or any another condition.

Do contact me and we can talk about how Acupuncture can help you at this time.

I track any sign or symptom back to the root cause and treat the root. Like a plant, if we just polish the leaves nothing much changes, but if the roots are nourished then healing takes place in Mind, Body and Spirit.

Fees for treatment.                                                             
First session; Traditional Chinese Diagnosis and treatment £75 allow 1&1/2 hours.

Each session after is £55 allow up to 1hr

An initial chat at my clinic or via Zoom could easily be arranged for which there is no fee.


“I’m really chuffed how all my symptoms that you’ve treated with acupuncture have responded- thanks SO much” Julie 

“I contacted several local acupuncturists, but after speaking to Ian I was instantly drawn to his warmth, knowledge and enthusiasm. I originally sought his help to relieve breathing difficulties following radiotherapy, which I have to say helped enormously. More recently I have attended his meditation workshops, and have maintained regular acupuncture to relieve stress and other health conditions. Ian is a great listener and offers sound, practical advice delivered in a calm, measured way, which he balances with a great sense of humour and positivity. I cannot recommend him highly enough”. Paul.
