Hello, I am Ian Dixon aka Danapriya (my Buddhist name).

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 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.

I graduated from the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in 1995 and have been on a Continued Professional Development programme since.


Free consultation

Call me for an informal chat or come and see me for a 20 minute free consultation, to see if Acupuncture is for you and that I am the practitioner for you.

I want to help you feel ‘Like Spring has come on a cold winter’s day’ (Ryokan).

My clinic is in Deal, Kent.

The first appointment is one and a half hours and costs £75, then each appointment after is for up to one hour and cost £55

PLEASE wash or hand sanitise hands on arrival and departure at the clinic. 


PLEASE wear mask on arrival and for the whole of your visit. If you forget your mask, I will give you a new disposable mask.


The clinic will be disinfected between patients. I am leaving time for this between appointments. Please do not arrive early for your appointment as I won’t be able to let you in until the clinic has been disinfected.
