Xing-Hui Liang (she is currently on sabbatical)


Xing-Hui Liang trained as a traditional Chinese medical doctor at the Zhejiang Traditional Chinese Medical University in China for five years and qualified with a Bachelor of Medicine (MB) degree from the university in 1983.

She worked as a traditional Chinese medical doctor in Chinese Medical Hospitals in China before working as an acupuncturist and Chinese herbal medicine doctor in Edinburgh from 1991. She has been practising at Napiers Clinic since 1993 and is a member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC).

Xing-Hui Liang has established her reputation in helping patients with the management of a wide range of complaints with acupuncture and traditional Chinese herbal medicine.

These include:

  • Conditions associated with women’s health such as menopausal symptoms and endometriosis, period pain and irregular periods, assisting IVF and fertility
  • Chronic pain including migraines, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis, and sciatica
  • Skin ailments such as eczema, acne, psoriasis
  • Problems associated with allergy, stress related illness, irritable bowel syndrome and general well-being

If you have not had acupuncture before then it is natural to feel slightly apprehensive but many people say that they find the sensation quite pleasant. Some say that they experience a dullness or tingling around the site of the needle but soon this settles down and a state of deep relaxation can be achieved. 

Xing-Hui Liang's in-depth knowledge of traditional Chinese medicine and her extensive experience have allowed her to successfully help manage and relieve patients’ suffering.
