I am passionate about acupuncture and Chinese medicine, the awareness it gives me and how I can use that to show people how to improve their health. I blend ancient theories of Chinese medicine with modern medicine to give a deep insight into illness and disharmony. I then use several treatment strategies to tackle the problem allowing for a quicker recovery.
I believe it's important to explain to people what's going on with them and the disharmony they have, as it empowers them. This allows us to work consciously together to improve health.
I graduated in 2004 from the world famous Beijing University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in China with a Bachelor of Medicine and from Middlesex University in London with a BSc (Hons) in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
This full time, 5 year degree included extensive study of western medicine, 3 years clinical experience at Asante Academy and Whittington hospital in London as well as 6 months internship at two of the largest hospitals in Beijing, China; Zhong Ri hospital and Xi Yuan hospital. It is considered to be the most comprehensive Chinese medicine degree program in the UK and Europe.
Over the last 13 year, I gave gained extensive experience in treating people for a wide range of complaints ranging from infertility, miscarriage, pain, anxiety, trauma, depression, digestive problems, skin complaints, stress, etc. In my treatments I use a mix of acupuncture, lifestyle and emotional coaching, dietary therapy, herbal medicine, cupping and moxibustion.
I first visited Attilio for back pain, which he sorted out, then a year later to enhance my fertility. He really helped me and i would recommend him to anyone.

I went to see Dr (TCM) Attilio D'Alberto with regards to my back problems, I had a prolapsed disc at the base of my spine trapping my nerves and causing pain down my leg and causing numbness in my toes. After having some intensive treatments with Dr (TCM) D'Alberto and changing my diet (as per his advice to help aid the healing process) I have since fully recovered, this was confirmed by my spinal consultant after having an MRI scan. My consultant confirmed my disc had almost full retracted back releasing the pressure off my nerve endings as a result I no longer have the constant pain or symptoms as described above. In my opinion he has prevented me from having spinal surgery which was the only other option I had when advised by a spinal consultant. My spinal consultant was supportive of me trying acupuncture rather than opting for surgery (surgery should always be the last resort is his opinion) and in my case acupuncture worked. I would recommend anyone with a similar problem or bulging discs or back pain to try acupuncture it's brilliant pain relief as well as helping the body prioritise the area where healing is required (ie the back and specifically the area where the distress is originating from). Thank you Dr (TCM) Attilio D'Alberto for your great advice and help in fixing me!
"I cannot recommend Dr (TCM) D’Alberto enough. I came to him following multiple IVF cycles at the ARGC due to unexplained infertility, including 3 miscarriages. I had a low AMH and had been told my chances of conceiving were minimal at best. I went to Dr D’Alberto immediately after the 3rd miscarriage feeling very low and willing to try anything, with the intention of having treatment for 6 months, then having him support us through another round of IVF. My body was completely shattered having been put through so much in a relatively short period of time. I asked Dr (TCM) D’Alberto how long it generally took people’s bodies to get to the stage where they could consider IVF. He advised me the average time was 6 months, however it would probably take longer for me due to the fact my body had gone through so much. We had previously tried a number of different therapies recommended for infertility, including reflexology, so felt we had nothing to lose. Six months following my first consultation I found out I was pregnant naturally with our much longed for baby. With our history we hadn’t expected to conceive naturally, and certainly not in such a short period of time! Due to my previous miscarriages I continued seeing Dr (TCM) D’Alberto throughout my pregnancy. I sailed through the pregnancy, and am now an extremely happy mummy to a 4 month old! I genuinely believe I wouldn’t have had my son if it wasn’t for Dr (TCM) D’Alberto’s work with me. Throughout he was extremely professional, empathetic, but with a wicked sense of humour. For anyone unsure, ignore the naysayers and get in touch with Dr (TCM) D’Alberto. It may well be the best thing you do!."
