25% of women and 10% of men suffer from depression

During their lifetime approximately one in four women and one in ten men will experience an episode of depression serious enough to require treatment. Western medical treatment often consists of a course of anti-depressants, or rarely a referral to a therapist. Our treatment approaches include acupuncture, herbal medicine and mindfulness techniques that teach you to manage your condition.


The 9 Signs of Depression

An epsiode of depression can include the following symptoms:

  • Depressed mood, nearly every day during most of the day
  • Marked diminished interest or pleasure in almost all activities
  • Significant weight loss (when not dieting), weight gain, or a change in appetite
  • Insomnia or hypersomnia (excess sleep)
  • Behaviour that is agitated or slowed down
  • Fatigue or loss of energy
  • Feelings of worthlessness or inappropriate guilt.
  • Impaired ability to concentrate or indecisiveness.
  • Recurrent thoughts of death, recurrent suicidal.

If you have been suffering from 5 or more of the following symptoms, at the same time, for more than 2 weeks, you may be experiencing an episode of major depression.

“I have had a brilliant Christmas and (usually for me) SAD season, whatever you did, I felt upbeat, fought off flu’s, and have had the best Christmas ever, with positive vibes and all good things, and I think I have to thank you, for what you did. Will see you late January for a booster!”

Vena Ramphal, London

I really liked how we started with the work on nutrition and my relationship with food.  This physical work acted as a safety net for the energetic emotional shifts that the breath and body work brought on. They were quite full on!

Alex Brown, London

“The best way I can describe what Stefan does is to say that there are times when I have gone to see him feeling like I'm "broken" due to stress, over work, the death of my brother and other life experiences that have been hard to deal with. And in a simple sentence I leave feeling "fixed". Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, Creative“
