Dr Hubert van Griensven
Hubert completed a three-year diploma course in Chinese acupuncture in 1996. He has also received training in western medical acupuncture. Before this, he graduated as a physiotherapist in the Netherlands in 1988 and has worked in the UK since 1990.
Hubert's clinical work starts with a thorough assessment to find out what will work for the individual person. He looks at every patient holistically and treats his patients accordingly. He combines traditional and modern science-based approaches to acupuncture, which provides the most effective treatment for each person.
All acupuncture treatments are carried out in a safe and hygienic manner. Only pre-sterilised needles are used. They are discarded safely following treatment and never re-used.
Hubert lectures at the University of Hertfordshire where he leads MSc modules in pain, psychological approaches for pain management and research methods. He has published two textbooks and a number of book chapters about pain.
Hubert enjoys daily Chinese exercise and working on soundscapes. He lives in London with his wife and two cats.
