Mr Sydenham, who runs sessions at the Tree of Life Clinic in Hove, still practises as a community nurse in Brighton.

Acupuncture can also help to control inflammatory responses in the body by balancing blood cortisol levels.

This may help with a wide range of problems such as long-term conditions like arthritis.

Mr Sydenham has been taught to help emotions and treating grief is an area of special interest which he has lectured on at university level.

He said: “Too much stress affects many of us adversely, causing sleep disorders, bowel and eating issues, fatigue and relationship issues – anger is a real issue in today’s society – as well as loss of libido.”
