About

George Monkhouse LicAc MBAcC is a specialist in instant pain relief for both acute and chronic pain, chronic stress and illness. He is an expert in strong natural medicine and shows you how to maximise health benefits of your treatment long term from your diet and lifestyle. 

He is highly respected as a leading acupuncturist with exceptional medical knowledge, and for bringing to light the use of Chinese medicine as a physical medicine, not an 'energy medicine' or 'alternative therapy'. 

An expert in pulse diagnosis, George can diagnose many biomedical conditions in minutes through the pulse, including the health of the heart and cardiovascular system, digestive and immune systems. 

George has undergone extensive 1-1 training with John Tindall and Bob Doane, two of the other foremost Chinese medicine practitioners internationally, who consider him an exceptional talent in the field of medicine.

His extensive studies and training allow him to identify the cause of many problems, advising patients how to best manage, treat and resolve any areas of imbalance through the use of ancient, tried and tested medicines. To this end, he has created the Way of Balance and Harmony, a series of principles and practices for regulating and optimising your own health day by day through your diet and lifestyle. The emphasis is on quick, simple and easy ways to get healthy, stay healthy and optimise all vital functioning.

George is dedicated to combating and beating the major modern health threats to civilised societies - cardiovascular and heart disease, cancer, obesity and diabetes. 

Passionate about clean living, health conscious food and leading an active lifestyle, in his personal time George enjoys martial arts, qigong and tai chi. When possible he immerses himself in nature through hiking, mountaineering, cycling and skiing. 

He is interested in biological toxicology, particularly the traditional use of venoms and poisons as medicine. 

His major life focus is in developing, implementing and securing a global free health service - "free medicine for all people, all of the time, everywhere". Everything he does is building towards this goal. If you can support this vision, please let him know you are interested in getting involved.

George has become one of the only people I trust with the complicated state of my body. Having had cancer over 10 years that spread throughout my skeleton and body, I have found only very few people with the sensitivity, depth of knowledge and understanding and the ability to be present of which George is certainly one.

I have been visiting George for over a year now for all my many ailments. He is more knowledgeable than all the doctors I know, calming, caring and professional. I am always refreshed and relaxed after each appointment, my ailments continue to lessen and his treatments are second to none. I have recommended George to both family and friends and will continue to insist on bringing them ......well when you find a good thing you have to share it!

I can only highly recommend George Monkhouse, him having treated me for a number of things, including really bad back pains that he completely cured. I love his intuitive style and passionate yet professional manner and find him really successful in both diagnosis and treatment.

I went to see George for regular migraines and chronic stress two year ago. Several months of treatment later, the migraines disappeared. I kept going for sessions to reduce complaints in my neck and back. Since I moved, I have had 2 other clinics and neither came close to his sessions. I often recommend George to friends in London and would highly recommend him to others.

I started receiving acupuncture after a serious leg injury to replace medication with a more holistic natural approach to pain relief … Since attending George sessions the healing process and the pain experienced improved instantly and his attitude, approach to healing and the diversity of healing practices he confidently masters have allowed me to lead an easier and more mobile life … Feeling grateful to have the chance to receive such a beneficial influence … Namaste

I couldn’t possibly recommend George Monkhouse enough. He is a true master in his field. I came to him with a complex ailment that I had suffered all my life, hindering everything I'd ever done, and impacted on my life in a profoundly negative way. George listened to me and analysed my pulse with an open heart and knew exactly what treatment I needed. After the treatment I immediately felt my symptoms improve and ever since I have been free of my ailments and lived full of joy, feeling so lucky that we met. I am forever grateful to him. I feel so much love and gratitude every day now, it is really extraordinary. Thank you from the bottom of my heart George. Wishing you all the best to you and all your patients who have yet to receive the great benefits of such a complete practitioner.

I first visited George coming from a state of total despair. Crippled by constant migraine caused by chronic, work-related stress, I was in acute pain on a daily basis, eating poorly and infrequently and unable to work. The sensitivity and quality of his treatment and his presence is second to none and he also gave me the tools to regain control of my feelings. George is without doubt an exceptionally talented acupuncturist, a first class professional and I am so relieved to have discovered him in the bleakest of times. My only advice would be, simply don’t wait until crisis point to seek treatment; you must save yourself the considerable amount of pain and anguish and act now.

So my spine has been feeling strangely amazing since I last saw you. Calm, like it is trying to forget. I felt strangely energised after the blood cupping. I know it was a drain of energy, but what it freed up in comparison has been really really good, and the area is responding brilliantly. I am attempting to manage this flow, and not get over excited with my new found glorious power and do myself an injury! I am really indulging in the increased freedom of movement. The work you have been doing has been making a real difference, in respects to pain, energy, and the emotional repercussions of this.

I just had to let you know that I am already 6 weeks pregnant! Thank you for your help and for the excellent treatment. It only took three sessions! Although it’s clearly early days hopefully all will go well. I will certainly contact you again when I or my family need treatment.

I initially visited George after the horror of a miscarriage and for endometriosis and the problems it brings. As well as helping me enormously with these issues, he was able to help me with so much more! I was amazed to find that the hay fever I have persistently suffered with throughout the summer was miraculously relieved to the point where I no longer needed to take anti-histamines and can now enjoy sneeze-free cuddles with my cat! He is also an excellent listener and has offered some wise and extraordinary advice and perspectives without ever coming across as telling you what to do. I really can’t recommend him highly enough.

George is an wonderful physician, both in terms of practical skills and his intuitive responses to patient needs. I have had a chronic condition for over 25 years which affects many aspects of my life, but the main negative contributor to this condition is stress. It is thanks to George that I have now positioned myself in a better space – while seeing George for my physical symptoms he somehow managed to influence me on a far broader scale, consequently I radically changed my job and lifestyle and my condition is now vastly improved.

I have been treated by George for over 7 years now, for many issues through the years, from insomnia to stomach problems. I have come to accept acupuncture as a powerful alternative to conventional medication generally supplied by GPs. I also receive acupuncture treatment for comprehensive well being often, which helps to keep my energy levels in balance and my body healthy through the months and seasons. I recommend acupuncture to everyone because you won’t never appreciate how good you will feel until you try it.

Your biggest success with me was putting an end to my chronic swollen ankles and kidney problems. This problem has not returned and my chest is much clearer.

George came swiftly to my house the day following my fall where I landed on the steep steps outside my home. I was sent home from hospital with crutches, barely able to walk, with many injuries all over my body. Severe bruising, terrible hip, back and shoulder pain, awful trauma to my neck. Back home I couldn't sleep for all the pain. The day after at the orthopaedic ward, I was again told nothing is broken except a toe, and given stronger pain relief, saying ‘see you in a month’. George was kind and professional, he gave me general advice about my general energy and health which really helped and was so appreciated. The day after treatment with George, with such less pain, I was able to stand up and walk! After the 3rd treatment I was mostly pain free! No drugs, slowly walking, the only issue of my broken toe. I also got back my period(!) after nearly a year with no sign of it. I have had acupuncture a few times by other skilled professionals, but I never found an effect so immediate on my physical body, and emotionally such a relief after a big trauma like that. Thank you George for your knowledgeable, professional, sensitive, respectful, trustworthy, accountable and affordable acupuncture treatment! I recommend George to everybody looking for successful natural care of your health problems. I will never forget your immediate understanding and support you gave me George! He is the first reference for my children and I in order to balance our state of health.

The A&E doc told me that because I had severed the digital nerve in my finger I would either never regain feeling in that finger or I could risk surgery which had a 50% possibility of success & a 10% risk of getting worse. I had one session of acupuncture with George & have 99% feeling back & ten very happy fingers. Thank you George. You are a wizard.

A brilliant practitioner. George has really sorted out my knees from a chronic cycle of repeated injury and pain that made life difficult. Digestive problems were sorted after the first month. As a patient I have found sessions very comforting and restorative and I have enjoyed George's breadth of knowledge

I have visited George for several treatments for pain relief of the mid-back and shoulder joints. George is professional and explains why he’s doing what he’s doing as well as offering further advice as to diet and improved posture and movement techniques. I have no hesitation in recommending George as an acupuncturist.

I was referred to George 2 years ago, suffering from Vasculitis, an autoimmune disorder. My body was overridden by steroids and other immunosuppressants, on top of that I was anaemic and the Vasculitis was still flaring up. I was thoroughly depleted. Within about 2 months of twice a week treatments, I was able to come completely off my medication; and I finally saw glimmers of my old self again, with my energy and health returning. I’m convinced that without George's acupuncture treatments, I might still be on immunosuppressants. I have no hesitation in recommending George at all — but in particular, if you suffer from autoimmune diseases, he has a great understanding and method.

George is helping me heal an Achilles injury sustained during training for an ironman triathlon due to take place in May. The acupuncture has improved the Achilles and reduced inflammation so much that I was soon able to start running again after a six week suspension.

I am writing to thank you for the acupuncture work you have been giving my Mother who recently celebrated her 89th birthday. Her diagnosis of early stage Parkinson’s disease in the summer of 2012 saw her condition deteriorate during the following 4 months. As a frequent traveller on business I was unable to offer the support I wanted and your home consultations which started in Dec 2012 have not only been hugely helpful but have also been highly successful. My Mother was very negative about her condition but in the last two months both herself and I have commented on the fact that her condition has improved so much that her walking is virtually back to normal. Her energy levels have been so well restored that on my last trip back to the UK in July we spent most of the day at a National Trust location enjoying lunch, walking in the garden and sitting enjoying the grounds. Her general outlook on life has transformed and she is very positive, even taking the opportunity to complete some light gardening work. Her shaky right hand is now steady enough to write letters and notes and use an iPad to send mails. She looks at her favourite topic, ballet and dance on the internet, books seats to attend the Royal Opera House for some afternoon performances. I am very very pleased at the results… especially at a time when the NHS specialists were keen to rely on a drug based plan which at best was there to treat the symptoms rather than tackle the underlying cause.

I have consulted George on many occasions over the last five years receiving acupuncture to help with pain relief for long term osteoarthritis. Sciatica was successfully treated after only two sessions. Although the pain relief may take effect after a few hours, there is immediate relaxation followed by a general feeling of well being that lasts for days. I would and do happily recommended George’s services.

I came to George to heal my plantar fasciitis and tight shoulders, initially to get ready for my next competition. I was amazed at how quickly the changes occurred, he has a wonderful gift for releasing my blockages and tight spots, and explains during treatment what he is doing and how I can help the treatment away from the clinic. It has also helped me relax and I have broken up my constant training and teaching schedule to incorporate qigong and yoga.

George is so committed: honest, polite and organised; a good communicator who delivers excellent customer care tailored to your condition. One of the many secrets of George’s success is his ability to listen carefully to his patients and then provide the best treatment as a result of this analysis.

When I initially consulted with George I was looking to regain full health from bowel cancer. During the period of care not only did George provide excellent advice, dietary care and acupuncture treatments, but also the pain was radically reduced and my lifestyle is much improved to maintain and improve my restored health.
