I´m here to help

Rachel Cohen (MBAcC)

I have been practicing acupuncture in Marbella and Mijas since 1996. I graduated from the London School of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, which has since become the TCM department at the University of Westminster (London, UK), in 1996. During the summer of 1996 , I had the pleasure of doing postgraduate clinical training at the Kunming Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine, in Kunming, Yunnan, China.

In 1996, I completed a course with the organization NADA, specializing in the use of auricular acupuncture for detox treatment of drug addiction. The training included work at the Gateway Clinic, Southwestern Hospital in Brixton, London. In Spain I worked as a volunteer at the Horizonte in Marbella, to add acupuncture to the detox program for interested participants.

I became pregnant for the first time in 1998, and since the birth of my eldest daughter in 1999, I have had 3 other children, including a set of twins. This experience, and the experiences shared with other mothers relating to pregnancy, fertility and different childbirth experiences sparked a specific interest in reproductive health and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Over the years I have done a variety of postgraduate courses in the use of acupuncture for reproductive health, IVF support and pregnancy.

In 2005 I began working at CERAM (Centro de Reproducción Asistida de Marbella) to include acupuncture pre and post egg transfer. In 2010 I also began working at Clinica Fertia in Fuengirola to offer the same treatment to women undergoing assisted reproduction. I work closely with doctors and staff at both clinics for women either living locally or travelling from abroad. Acupuncture treatments can be arranged at either clinic for pre and post egg transfer acupuncture. Other acupuncture treatments for reproductive health and gynaecology can be treated at private clinics in Marbella and Mijas.

I am an overseas member of The British Acupuncture Council and a member of The Acupuncture Fertility Network. Members of the British Acupuncture Council have completed a minimum of a three year course in traditional acupuncture, and are therefore entitled to use the letters MBAcC after their name. UK members are covered by a professional indemnity and public liability insurance and bound by the council’s Code of Ethics and Practice.

Acupuncture in Marbella & Mijas

Malaga Acupuncture offers the Oriental approach to health care in Marbella & Mijas. Many have choosen acupuncture who do not feel that they are getting relief for their conditions with Western Medicine alone. Oriental medicine is a time tested medical system that has been practiced for thousands of years and provides a holistic approach to health in the prevention and treatment of disease. The key to health is balance. Illness, injury, poor lifestyle habits, and the stresses of everyday life disrupt the delicate balance that is key to good health and vitality.

Traditional Chinese Medicine relies on the body’s natural healing ability to maintain health and protect against disease. Both Western and Oriental Medicines have the same goal of helping a person stay healthy. A combination of both systems creates an ideal environment of health and healing.

Malaga acupuncture offers an integrative approach to healthcare on the Costa del Sol. Clinics in Mijas and Elviria easily serve the Benalmadena to Marbella areas. Treatments are also available at Clinica Fertia in Fuengriola and CERAM in Marbella for acupuncture treatments during assisted reproduction procedures.

Testimonials

  • I started going to Rachel for some physical ailments that I wanted to solve holistically. She was able to help me manage those and when she started offering the acupuncture facelift, I made an appointment right away. She did the initial set of treatments and I noticed a significant improvement in my skin. The elasticity of my skin seemed better and the lines on my forehead and around my mouth decreased. I now continue to see Rachel for touch up treatments. I am very happy with the results I get from the treatments.

  • The healing starts when Rachel enters the room. She is totally focused on her patient, carefully listens to her history, and is fully engaged in the healing. She poses thoughtful questions to clarify all facets of the medical problem. Rachel truly understands the two thousand year old, Chinese medicine. She has several years of advanced training as well as many years of practical experience. Rachel has been a blessing to me.

    Margaret Brown
  • Both my wife and I have been using Rachel’s services for a couple of years now. Acupuncture has been the only thing that gives either of us any long term relief from on going back pain. In one session she is able to accomplish what would take weeks of physical therapy and medication. I highly recommend that anyone with back pain give her a call. You won’t be disappointed.
