Do you suffer from any of the following ailments? :

  • Back Pain

    Back Pain

    Back Pain is one of the most common ailments I see from people attending the clinic and it’s hardly surprising since, according to stats, 90% of all people in the UK will suffer from back pain at some point in their lives. I simple love treating back pain because I understand the mechanism and the muscles involved which are at the root of most problems and because feedback from patients is usually so profound.

The Acupuncture Works in Lewes

Esaias Hobbs of The Acupuncture Works in LewesMy name is Matthew Esaias Hobbs, I am the Practice Director and Senior Practitioner at The Acupuncture Works and I’d like to welcome you to The Acupuncture Works website.

At The Acupuncture Works we’ve been practising Chinese Acupuncture and Massage for more than ten years. We integrate Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) with Five Element Chinese Acupuncture and engage in regular CPD (Continual Professional Development), which hones our treating ability and allows us to offer our patients the most comprehensive Personal Treatment Plan (PTP) available.  More recently, I have engaged in post-graduate studies in Classical Chinese Medicine, which takes the understanding of Chinese medicine back to ‘The Classics’ and provides a deeper understanding and treatment ability than I have found available through TCM and Five Element alone.

We specialise in the treatment of Pain; Back pain, IBS, Depression, Insomnia, Frozen Shoulder, Headache, Stress, Anxiety and Fertility issues.

Our ethos is to eradicate unnecessary suffering and you will notice, within our shop, that we are running several Special Offers, so if you would like to take advantage of any of them, please give me us a call or book an appointment online.

Testimonials about The Acupuncture Works in Lewes

“Having had a sports injury to my shoulder brought about by playing tennis, I noticed an immediate improvement and the course of 2 weeks of massage and acupuncture helped fix the injury and get me back to playing the sport I enjoy the most rather than having to take endless pain killers.”


“Having tried and failed to quit smoking more than a hundred times, using various methods, I came to Esaias, as I had received some excellent treatments from him for other things, and we planned that he would assist me to quit on a given date.
To cut a long story short, with thanks to Esaias and his needles, I have now been a non smoker for either 9 or 10 years (I forget) and what’s more it was painless, and Esaias was always there to invigorate my chi and keep me in good form.
I find it great to check in with Esaias and get a ‘lift’ every now and again. I can’t recommend his skills and devotion to his patients highly enough. The best acupuncturist I have ever been to, hands down!”
