Acupuncturist Sandra Bufano
My name is Sandra Bufano Bsc (Hons) MBAcC and I run The Clinic London and I have been practising acupuncture, cupping and therapeutic massage since 2015. I’m a member of the British Acupuncture Council. I graduated in 2015 with a degree title from the University of East London and I also hold a diploma from the Nanjing Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine, where I undertook part of my training. I am fully insured.
I practice a range of treatments, depending on patients’ needs. These include acupuncture, electro acupuncture, Tui Na massage, moxa treatment, cupping therapy. I often use a combination of these treatments to increase their respective effectiveness. I have also developed a strong interest in myofascial release, this focuses on releasing 'trigger points' in the connective tissue which extends throughout the body to protect both bones and muscle. These tissues can become stiff - sometimes even immobile - and cause pain. Massaging these areas can help eliminate pain and improve flexibility. It is particularly effective in the treatment of musculus-skeletal conditions as arthritic pain, sciatica, tennis elbow and sport injuries.
I focus on treating many issues with both acupuncture and massage, these include:
- back pain.
- headaches and migraines.
- menstrual disorders.
- digestive conditions.
- sports injuries.
Acupuncture and massage can be combined to support and improve client’s overall physical and emotional well-being. As well as seeing private clients, I treat clients of homeless charity, St Mungo's Broadway. Collaborating with the charity allows me to support individuals who are dealing with some of the complex issues surrounding addiction and mental health.
Where I practice:
I am practicing at a family-friendly private medical practice at the Health Hub in Herne Hill - South London, the hub operates a network of ten expert practitioners in physical, talking and aesthetic therapies.
Health Hub is fully approved and accredited by the CQC.
