About Duncan McGechie

Portrait of Duncan McGechie- Acupuncturist, sports massage and Chinese medicine practitioner

Duncan has been interested in healing and eastern thought and philosophy since childhood and has been applying that to the study and practice of acupuncture, manual therapy, Chinese medicine and therapeutic exercise since 1996 when he started qigong and wing chun training.

The focus on Chinese medicine has been incredibly useful and rewarding. Integrating traditional Chinese theory and concepts with recent fascia and biomechanical research leads to continuing innovation and provides new solutions for our clients. Email Duncan

Our Approach

Our approach to treatment is person centred and can therefore be called holistic. We listen to a persons experience of their condition and respond to their needs. We look at their body and health as a whole, in the context of their life and circumstances.

Emotional factors can cause physical issues just as physical issues can lead to emotional responses. We look at health in an integrated way considering the person as an embodied mind. You can read more about our philosophy here.
