Sachiko Hatakeyama


 I am the clinic co-manager as well as a fully licensed acupuncturist, having graduated with a 1st class BSc (Hons) in Acupuncture from the International College of Oriental Medicine (ICOM) (University of Greenwich).   I am also a member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) the UK’s main regulatory body for the practice of traditional acupuncture.

I am trained in Classical Chinese medicine, covering Five elements and TCM [8 principles] methods of practice, as well as stem and branches constitutional treatments which take into account the individual constitution and congenital factors of the patient to treat the root cause as well as addressing the presenting symptoms. 

I treat all conditions but my special areas of interest include:

1- Obesity support 

This is following from my dissertation topic; “Appetite Control through Auricular Acupuncture”. I also address the psycho-emotional aspects of obesity and its treatment with acupuncture, as well as dietary advice from the Japanese Macrobiotic tradition.

2 – Cosmetic acupuncture

I have also trained extensively in Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture and Facial Lift massage.  I have a practice Mayfair in London specifically for Facial Rejuvenation acupuncture though offer it also at Kika.
