Back, neck and shoulder pain

I have been very pleased with my treatment by Jason for a condition I’ve had on and off for over a year. I had intense pain and disturbed sleep resulting from my hip and knee problems and physiotherapy had failed to improve the situation. After the first treatment with Jason (out of two so far), I was already getting dramatic and immediate relief for the intense pain. I was originally somewhat sceptical that anything would come of acupuncture but felt I had nothing to lose, so was flabbergasted and delighted by the result.

When acupuncture treatment comes in mind, look for Jason Unwin!! I had 4 sessions with him, for my lower back/shoulder blade, and now I am feeling so much better for the first time since a year ago! He is professional, friendly and knowledgeable. Will definitely look for him again, should I need more treatment in different areas. Adhe Sulistya


An absolute saviour to my (neck and shoulder) pain and relaxation! Being coming to the practice for a good part of 10 years and always a wonderful experience. Everyone there is so kind and considerate. Highly recommend Jason and the whole clinic to anyone who is experienced or a novice to Acupuncture. Curtis.


I’ve been going to Jason since 2021 for acupuncture to support stress management & related musculoskeletal symptoms. Jason is a very experienced & compassionate practitioner. I always benefit from his treatments & his practice is located in a convenient & ambient setting. Highly recommended. Lucy


Jason is a great clinician, he is my go to for general well being and back pain. Thank you for all the great treatments Jason. Lora

Migraines and headaches

I’ve been going to Jason Unwin for acupuncture to treat my migraine and related pain for over four years now and would basically go wherever he is practicing. Having occasionally tried other practitioners when I first went to university, I subsequently returned to Jason and really appreciate that he is a highly skilled professional whom I know I can rely upon, and his experience and knowledge has helped me cope with my chronic pain enormously. I really like this new location at the Light Centre, it’s great for transport links and is a nice, modern, purpose-built space. I also appreciate that it is accessible for wheelchair users, which, although I am not a wheelchair user, as disabled person I appreciate that the space is welcoming to my community. It’s also great to have so many other therapy services in the same place and I would consider using some of the other therapies here. Poppy


I have been seeing Jason in London since summer 2018 for my migraines and problems with my lower back. The results were immediate and, most importantly, long lasting. I have not had any major issues anymore since I started acupuncture. I particularly appreciate the holistic approach that Jason has been taking on my issues. Great experience and highly recommended - thank you for your help! Barbara.


After just a few sessions with Jason my migraines are much weaker :) I am so happy! I used to have severe migraines which lasted at least a day (sometimes 2-3 days). Sometimes the pain was so bad that I had nausea and vomited. Now the pain is A LOT weaker. It's more like the pre-migraine pain than an actual migraine. When I feel it's starting I take paracetamol, lie down in a dark, quiet room, try to relax and it stops after an hour or two. Amazing. I will continue the acupuncture sessions with Jason for sure. UPDATE - 13 Nov 2019 I rarely have migraines now :) There are months when I don't have any at all! (I used to have at least 2 a month; sometimes lasted 2-3 days). If I have any at all now they are very weak. Usually lying down in a dark room helps or a small dose of paracetamol. It stops after 1-2h. I come to see Jason every 1-2 weeks. Sometimes every 3 weeks. It really works! :) Anon.


I have been blighted by debilitating headaches as long as I remember. The last stretch was continuous pain for weeks, even in my sleep. I finally decided to give acupuncture a try and it has been a lifesaver. I have no hesitation in recommending. Ali May


I came across this clinic about 2 years ago, as I was suffering with severe migraines, anxiety and lower back pain. I was desperate for some one to treat me so that I no longer had to take pain killers. After researching practitioners I decided to see Jason Unwin, as I felt he would be able to help me. Taking a read through his profile, put me at ease, because he had such extensive knowledge and experience I knew I had made the right decision. Having seen Jason for nearly 2 years on and off being treated with acupuncture, I can gratefully say I’m no longer a suffer of the above. He is the best at what he does, and you instantly feel at ease when you meet him. I have happily recommended him to friends and family, who always are so appreciative, and it gives me great pleasure in doing so. Sophia.


I have been seeing Jason for treatment of TMJ, migraines, and hormonal imbalances, and I couldn't be happier with the results. Not only is he highly knowledgeable and experienced in his field, but he is also incredibly kind and compassionate. He takes a holistic approach to treatment, incorporating Chinese herbs as well as acupuncture, and I have seen significant improvements in my symptoms since beginning treatment with him. I am so grateful to have found such an excellent practitioner and would recommend him to anyone needing acupuncture care. Mette

I was new to Acupuncture when I visited Jason. Jason made me feel at ease and comfortable. Jason is very professional and has a quiet and attentive manner. Jason has treated me for TMJ (with awesome results), migraines, allergies, anxiety, insomnia and alopecia. I have felt much better after the sessions. Deena


Having suffered with sciatica pain for at least 3 months I tried various different treatments all of which cost a lot of money and didn't work. Luckily I came across Jason Unwin. Jason was absolutely fantastic! I noticed an improvement after the first session. So my advice is if you have sciatica pain go and see Jason Unwin. He is easily the best Acupuncture and Chinese medicine practitioner! I am stating this because I tried another practitioner as Jason was fully booked at that time and again that was a waste of money. Nordin.


Jason has really helped me over the last six months initially with sciatica and also regulating my menstrual cycle I have found acupuncture has really helped relax me and has helped with both. I would highly recommend Jason. Sarah


I have been seeing Jason weekly for several months now to help with Rheumatoid Arthritis. I am enjoying a more herbal approach to treating my condition. I would highly recommend Jason if you want a more herbal treatment or approach. Katie


I have been seeing Jason for the last 6 weeks for treatment of painful arthritis in my hands. The results have been immediate and my hands are now almost pain free and the joints are much more mobile. A great result and avoided taking any pain relief or anti inflammatory medication which is a real bonus. Anon.


I went to see Jason a couple of months ago due to suffering from very bad arthritic knees which after a few sessions has become less painful enabling me to walk long distances again with more ease. It is incredible how much improvement I have achieved through acupuncture and I fully recommend anyone suffering from pain or inflammation problems to seek Jason out and give it a go! Steph

A must try

I was recommended to try acupuncture to treat a shoulder impingement. I had previously sought the traditional remedy of a doctor; steroid injections and surgery was the next step. Even though I have a fear of needles I thought I would give it a go as I didn't want to undergo surgery and be laid up for months on end. Jason made me feel at ease and after just a few treatments my pain was a lot better. I am 100% convinced that acupuncture has alleviated my condition and made me feel better in myself generally, by carrying much less tension. I plan to continue seeing Jason, on a less frequent basis, because I know I will come out feeling very relaxed. Mark

Balancing female hormones; menstrual cycle

I came to Jason with a host of hormonal symptoms that were causing me to feel terrible. He focussed on these issues for the last few months and, in conjunction with Chinese herbs, I am feeling much better now. It's rare to find someone who hones in and focuses on the issue at hand. Most practitioners try to do too much too fast. I appreciate his dedicated to detail and staying the course. Amy


I reached out to Jason in November 2022 as my menstrual cycle was a bit all over the place and so were my hormones. Jason in 2/3 months has got my menstrual cycle back on point! My periods are now regular, and my hormones are much calmer and less erratic. I have a clearer more positive mindset and feel like I’m back to my old happy upbeat self. Anon.


With the support of Chinese medicine and regular acupuncture sessions with Jason we have regulated my menstrual cycle, removed the stress out my body. More importantly we are now working on acupuncture for fertility to support and stimulate blood flow to my ovaries. Anon.

Supporting natural fertility

Having had the standard fertility tests, I had been told that my chances of conceiving naturally were low and should look at IVF and other options. I started acupuncture with Jason at the clinic as soon as I was told this and within three months I fell pregnant naturally with my beautiful baby girl. I cannot recommend the clinic and Jason highly enough. Thank you. Kirsty


Having done the fertility tests last September I was told I have low chances to conceive naturally or through IVF due to low ovarian reserve and age factor (I was 39). By recommendation of a very good friend I came to the Acupuncture clinic to see Jason with low expectations… he was very attentive, patient and positive. I fell pregnant within 2 months! Now 18 weeks+. Thanks Jason and the team! Nargiz.


Jason & Katie are wonderful. I came to both in such a mess - all systems in my body giving me trouble & no hopes of ever gaining my fertility back. I’m now sitting here 4 months pregnant & feel healthier than I ever have. I really do believe that their expertise has largely contributed to this amazing blessing. Thank you with all my heart. Holly.


Update: The only word that I feel sums up Jason is magical. His kindness and expertise has guided me through the most difficult of times and I find myself happy and healthier than I have ever been. His belief means I am sitting here writing this with a beautiful little girl and for that I am eternally grateful. There is no other acupuncturist like him. Holly


I’ve previously had acupuncture for fertility and conceived our first child at the age of 40yrs all naturally and within a couple of months of trying together with acupuncture. Now with the support of a healthy balanced lifestyle, healthy diet, yoga, pilates, and regular acupuncture we are now prepping my body to hopefully conceive our 2nd child naturally in the future :)' Martina

Acupuncture during pregnancy; morning sickness

I started having sessions when I was 8 weeks pregnant. My morning (all day!) sickness was so debilitating that I was struggling to get out of bed, eat or even just function in every day life. After three sessions, I felt much better and I worked with Jason twice a week until the second trimester, when the symptoms eased off. Jason is extremely knowledgeable and I felt in safe hands for my first pregnancy. I can't thank him enough. Olivia.


I have continued having acupuncture with Jason every week during my pregnancy, which has been invaluable for maintaining a relaxed and positive outlook. Jason has also periodically treated my neck and shoulder tension as needed, and, most recently, has almost entirely relieved the symptoms of my pregnancy-related carpal tunnel syndrome. Apart from the acupuncture itself, one of the most valuable aspects of my weekly treatments with Jason has been the opportunity to discuss how I am feeling, both physically and mentally. He has been a constant source of expert advice and reassurance and manages to create an atmosphere of quiet sympathy, support and encouragement during his consultations. I would wholeheartedly recommend his services, whether for fertility issues or support during pregnancy. Emma

Acupuncture helped me with IVF

I started acupuncture with Jason after a failed round of IVF. I was then 40 and was being treated for immune problems by my IVF clinic, but I also had a low ovarian reserve and irregular periods and was feeling pretty downbeat about my chances of getting pregnant. For the next 3 months I had an acupuncture treatment every week, during which Jason concentrated on improving my fertility, but at the same time was able to treat my long-standing neck and shoulder stiffness. Encouraged by Jason, I also worked hard on my nutrition and relaxation techniques during this time. By the time my next round of IVF started, my periods had become almost entirely regular and also less painful, with many fewer clots. I felt positive and relaxed, experienced much less discomfort from the IVF medication, and produced almost twice as many eggs as before, leading to a healthy pregnancy. Kate

Bell's Palsy

I was diagnosed with Bell's palsy and put on extreme high dose corticosteroids yet after three weeks there had been no improvement. Several people had told me to try acupuncture and I wanted to go to a reputable place because it was my face that needed treatment and after much research I decided to come and see Jason Unwin at this centre. I am so glad I did take the plunge because after weeks of no change on heavy medication and me getting worried that my face may not return to normal 100%, I am now 80-85% recovered in just 6 sessions over 3 weeks with him! Jason is an expert acupuncturist and brings years of experience from his practice in China and I can see the expertise in how he has treated my palsy with extreme precision and care. I only wish I had started sooner! thanks Jason! Swarna Khare


I am so grateful to Jason for healing my long term dermatitis on my eyelids only with three sessions, his treatment with recommended herbal medicine worked real magic and I am recommending everyone to go see him with chronic skin issues and for overall stress related conditions. Ayshat

Jason brought me back to health

In both diagnosis and treatment with acupuncture and herbal medicine Jason provided effective core solutions to a condition where conventional medicine only helplessly recognised the symptoms. Jason brought me back to health. Simon

A crucial component in my recovery

I saw Jason in March 2015 to seek his help with an autoimmune condition that I had just been diagnosed with a couple of months prior. I was suffering from a number of physical symptoms including body pains, numbness in my limbs and dizziness. I was still coming to terms with the diagnosis at that point, and Jason played a huge part in helping me to get relief from the symptoms I was facing at that time, and also getting a clearer picture of what lay ahead in terms of living with the condition and strategies to cope with it. This helped me to regain a lot of confidence in my health. The acupuncture treatments that Jason gave me have helped to reduce, if not eliminate, most of the issues that I saw him for and I can't thank him enough. A great TCM physician and a friend that I will cherish! Howey

A life changing experience

I began seeing Jason when I really felt nobody could help. I was underweight, my periods had stopped and the only thing being offered to me was HRT. As someone in her mid-thirties, this was not an attractive option so I looked at alternatives. Within six months, to the astonishment of my NHS team, Jason restored my menstrual cycle to a regular pattern and completely changed my body shape. I have continued to see Jason for a range of complicated health problems with treatment providing relief if not full recovery. His approach is non-intimidating and non-judgmental. He listens and works with you to provide the best outcome through a mix of acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. He is excellent value for money too. Pandora 

A turning point for long Covid

I have been very fortunate to find Dr.Jason Unwin, -his treatments were a turning point in my year long condition, I suffered greatly as a side effect after covid. The treatments itself in combination with Chinese medicine made a profound difference in my quality of life. I have had many other experiences with acupuncture before but none worked as effective and swiftly as Dr.Unwin methods. I can not recommend him enough. Eugenia


I have been seeing Jason for weekly treatments since October. He has been helping me to successfully manage my Long Covid, including peripheral neuropathy symptoms. I have more energy, sleep better and feel more relaxed after treatments. As experienced herbalist he has advised and helped me to obtain Chinese herbs which reduce joint pain and boost my immune system. I highly recommend him. Martina

Late onset asthma

Having been diagnosed with "late onset asthma" I booked acupuncture sessions with Jason Unwin. It took two sessions before my breathing started to normalise and eventually I no longer needed an inhaler. I still see Jason for top ups if I feel my respiratory system is compromised. His empathy and knowledge of Chinese medicine is so impressive. Jo.

General wellbeing

I’m currently having regular acupuncture treatment by the wonderful Dr Jason Unwin at Bath Soul spa. I couldn’t recommend him enough! It's such a beautiful calming session. Jason is very attentive, calming, he really understands the body and more importantly unblocking your chi in your body to help stimulate blood flow to those areas. Anon.


Jason Unwin is a thorough and thoughtful practitioner. He is a great listener and because of such able to ascertain the best treatment for any given situation. He is also generous with his time and with the wisdom he has garnered from many years of hard work, research and practice. Recommend him highly. Pamela.


Since beginning treatment with Jason I have very much felt the benefits of acupuncture and Chinese medicine. He has helped to restore my energy levels following illness. He listens carefully and adapts the treatment every session according to my needs. He is always caring and helpful. Diana

Anxiety relief

I had the privilege of visiting Acupuncture Clinic - Dr. Jason Unwin TCM MSs for anxiety relief, and it proved to be an absolute sanctuary of healing. Dr. Unwin's extensive knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine, coupled with his remarkable skill in acupuncture, provided an amazing experience. From the serene environment to the compassionate care, every aspect of the clinic exuded warmth and professionalism. Through tailored acupuncture treatments and herbal remedies, Dr. Unwin guided me towards a significant reduction in anxiety levels. I am forever grateful. Agata

Highly recommended!

Jason is an excellent practitioner of acupuncture. He takes a calm, no-fuss, no-nonsense approach that works wonders. Highly recommended. Giles


My husband and I have started booking with Jason weekly and we can’t get enough. Amazing treatment in a relaxing atmosphere. Highly recommended for many health improvements desired. Hamida


Jason has been treating me for the past year and has made an incredible difference to my health. I went through 5 senior Western trained consultants to no avail before realizing that Chinese medicine can effectively treat many conditions that our own system hasn’t figured out how to deal with yet. Jason is a natural healer, highly recommend. Francis


I was looking for a local acupuncturist after my usual go-to retired and I came across Jason at the Light Centre, who I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anybody. He was able to get to the heart of my concern quickly and I felt better after one session, and treated after a few. Nick


Jason has been treating me for years and I can't recommend him highly enough. He has a wonderful, kind manner and his treatments are always spot on. I've seen him for a number of different issues and he has always listened attentively and known exactly the right treatment for me. Alexander


Jason is an expert, and certainly capable to help with whatever problem you may be facing. Can only recommend! Martin
