By and large, in West Edinburgh acupuncture is otherwise poorly represented. So bear in mind that we have:

  • Free parking in the hotel's car-park
  • No stairs - we're on the same level as the car-park
  • Plenty of friendly staff
  • Many buses (12, 26, 31, 48, Airlink 100 and others)
  • If you come with someone, there are several places he or she can wait for you, with refreshments available all day, or (for a small fee) use the gym, swimming pool or sauna!
  • Newspapers to read
  • Wi-fi available (there may be a charge for this)
  • 35 years of experience

What can you expect when you see Jonathan?

You will receive his undivided attention. You will need to talk about, and show him if necessary, what hurts or troubles you. He will take careful notes (which are entirely confidential) and ask you questions.

He will probably look at your tongue and take your 'pulses'.

If there's time, you would like it and it's appropriate, he can start treatment immediately. Before doing so you will be asked to sign a permission form, because that's what Jonathan is legally required to obtain before starting treatment.

You can read more about what happens during acupuncture if you click on one of the following links:

What happens during a treatment?

It depends. Everyone is different and so is every treatment. The treatment you receive depends on what has happened since the last treatment, and on how you are. 

Very often, after you've talked about changes you've noticed since the last treatment, Jonathan will decide what to do, do the treatment, which might involve acupuncture, or cupping or a range of other ways of treating you, and then leave you to rest for a while. 

During the treatment, it's absolutely fine to have a doze! 

After perhaps twenty minutes he will return, remove any needles, help you get up or leave you to get ready. Then you'll make another appointment, if you need one, and off you go!

By the way, Jonathan has written several books on Chinese medicine, and has lectured on it and subjects associated with it for 30 years. See details of some of his books below.

Jonathan Clogstoun-Willmott Books

All the books in the 'Chinese Medicine in English' series should be fully accessible on Kindles and Kindle apps. (Or you can buy the softback print editions, of course.)

('Western Astrology and Chinese Medicine' published 1986, was never available in a Kindle version.)

Request! Please!

If, having read one of my books you can write a review - preferably positive - that would help others decide whether to read it.

You can put your review on Amazon or, on this site, here.

And if you think it was terrible?

Well, let me know so I can improve it for the next person. (Ideally let me know before cursing it in public!)

Here are some of the books I (Jonathan) have written.

Subscribers to Kindle Unlimited can borrow the first four for 'free'.

Qi Stagnation - Signs of Stress

Yin Deficiency - Burnout and Exhaustion

Yang Deficiency - Get Your Fire Burning Again!

Yuck! Phlegm! How to Clear Your Phlegm ...

Western Astrology and Chinese Medicine

Published 1986 and, amazingly, still selling. Western Astrology and Chinese Medicine was apparently used back then by at least one acupuncture college to help students understand Chinese medicine! See Reviews.

Seven Reviews so far for Yuck Phlegm. (Despite the lurid cover, it explains the five main types of phlegm and what works best for each type. I hope it's easy to read and will be much more useful than all the websites on the subject.)

3000 years of Chinese being stressed, and at last, here's a book showing how all that experience can help you!

By the author of this website, it explains in simple English how to use stress to improve and enhance your life.
