Background and Experience 

For several years in the 1980s and 90s, Dr Malcolm ran the only NHS Acupuncture Clinic in Glasgow. He was a lecturer for the British Medical Acupuncture Society (BMAS) between 1992 and 1996 and chaired their Academic Committee for a year in 1997. Dr Malcolm will shortly provide weekly complementary pain clinics at the Craig Road Clinic in Tayport, Fife.


The Main Techniques Provided

The main treatment methods employed here are based on western models, and include Segmental and Dermatomal treatments, TNS and other related techniques.

In addition, some classical points originating from Tradtional Chinese Medicine (TCM) may be selectively used when they are indicated.

The Starting Point 



The initial treatment process involves a detailed consultation to establish the nature of the problem and identify whether the symptoms are arising mainly from local problems, or whether they are manifestations of a wider disturbance.  Examination and Dry Needling


Western Acupuncture and other biophysical treatments are often effective where there are clear localising signs and symptoms. When there are wider systems-disturbances, patients are usually guided towards other system-specific treatments.
