Shervin is an acupuncturist whose expertise has helped many of his patients with a wide spectrum of issues ranging from musculo-skeletal conditions to emotional and stress related disorders.
He gained his degree level qualification in Acupuncture (Dip Acu) after successfully completing a 4 year course at the renowned College of Naturopathic Medicine in London, which required the study of both western and eastern medicine concepts and treatment protocols.
The blending of eastern and western health systems is central to Shervin’s healthcare philosophy. He firmly believes that it would be in the patients’ best interests if practitioners of the two systems strive to complement rather than compete with each other.
For Shervin’s patients, treatment starts from the moment they enter the clinic and are welcomed to a calm and inviting environment. Shervin takes time to truly understand the unique set of factors and individual circumstances specific to each patient, and uses this information to form the basis of a tailor-made treatment plan. Adopting this truly holistic approach and avoiding a ‘one size fits all’ process lies at the heart of Shervin’s treatment ethos.
Shervin continues to expand his knowledge by regularly attending national classes and seminars, keeping up-to-date with developments in the field. He currently treats patients from his client base in clinics in North & East London as well as an NHS surgery in Brighton.
