Apothecary Natural Health Centre has centres in Hammersmith & Fulham, West London and Brecon, Mid Wales. We provide hands-on treatments from experienced practitioners and a teaching centre for Chinese medicine. In Hammersmith we also have a shop selling a range of natural products and a community interest company art gallery.
We have a particular specialism in tuina Chinese massage. This versatile and effective therapy, probably the precursor of acupuncture alongside which it is often used, has grown and developed over the past few thousand years. It can be used to treat a wide range of conditions including: joint pain, injuries and imbalances; migraine and tension headaches, IBS and digestive imbalances, asthma and respiratory conditions, menstrual and fertility issues, insomnia and anxiety.
The style of tuina practiced is based on the classical Chinese idea of qi which allows a quiet, deep focus on affected areas, while promoting balance within the whole. Hands-on treatment is supported by life style advice tailored to individual needs.
Founder of Apothecary and lead practitioner Rosey Grandage MCSP MBAcC is a physiotherapist who traveled to China throughout the 1990’s studying and practicing acupuncture, tuina and qi gong. She has taught tuina and Chinese medicine theory at University of Westminster for 15 years and heads a team of expert, dynamic practitioners at Apothecary.
Alexander Kamilov BSs is a graduate of the University of Westminster. He is qualified Acupuncturist and Tuina massage therapist.
Alex has a particular interest in treating digestive disorders, musculoskeletal pain and sports injuries. In addition to hands on treatments he emphasises the teaching of dietary and lifestyle advice to enhance the effects of Chinese Medicine.
