Truus Jansen

Truus Jansen

Truus trained at the college of Acupuncture in London under Paul Johnson, one of the chief point location lecturers and fertility specialists, and TuiNa (Chinese Medical Massage) with Sarah Pritchard, chief lecturer and author of two books on the subject. The combination of Acupuncture and Tui Na makes Truus able to work with all patients from infants to the elderly with any diagnosis using different techniques according to their needs and ailments. Truus is also specialised in Paediatric Chinese Medicine having studied with Rebecca Avern who is the senior lecturer, clinical supervisor and teaching clinic director at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading.

Chinese Medicine is a therapy that stimulates the body points either with the practitioner’s hands in Tui Na, or with needles in acupuncture. This stimulation helps the body to heal itself.
In any illness and pain, from new-born to the elderly, our body shows signs of being out of balance and Chinese Medicine, through using various therapies, aims to restore the natural balance of the body back to health. Truus also practises facial rejuvenation Gua Sha, cupping, moxibustion and/or auricular (ear) acupuncture.

Truus Jansen is a qualified Acupuncturist, Tui Na (Medical Massage), Reiki and Paedriatrics practitioner, licensed and insured. If you want to learn more, ask questions about your specific needs, or book an appointment please do not hesitate to contact Truus directly over the phone 07840 550 363, or email
