Bartosz is a medical doctor and a specialist in Internal Medicine. He has been practising medicine for over 15 years in hospitals in Poland and the UK, both in private and NHS settings, including the cardiology ward in Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.
Whilst appreciating the benefits of Western medicine, he felt it lacked a holistic approach. Eager to explore other medical systems, he discovered acupuncture.
He learnt that the body does not always need medication as it has the capacity to heal itself. It simply needs a push in the right direction to return to natural healthy balance – and that push could be achieved by needling acupuncture points.
After a 4-year foundation course in Chinese medicine in 2011 he set out to explore different acupuncture styles. With time and experience he has found that Japanese acupuncture achieves the best results for his patients. This unique system uses abdominal palpation to refine the clinical diagnosis. It also uses a gentle needling technique such that the acupuncture treatment is relatively painless.
Sessions are dynamic and patients frequently notice improvements in symptoms during the treatment.
Although acupuncture in the West is frequently prescribed for pain relief, Bartosz does not limit its ability to alleviate many internal diseases. His specialty lies in regulating hormonal imbalance, which may cause gynaecological problems such as irregular or painful menstruation and infertility. He also uses acupuncture to regulate the immune system where dysfunction gives rise to allergies, skin problems and autoimmune diseases such as Hashimoto’s, Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis.
Backed by his medical knowledge, he is able to complement western medical treatments to achieve his patients’ recovery from such diseases using acupuncture, as well as recommending additional tests to support the treatment process.
