My Acupuncture Work

I have been practising acupuncture since 2006 following a 4-year university course in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading, United Kingdom. My current practice integrates traditional Five Element (constitutional), TCM (symptom-oriented) and the Balance Method (rapid response) acupuncture styles, allowing for gentle and efficient treatments.

I have worked as an acupuncturist in a wide variety of settings, including an international school in England, private clinics in the UK & Switzerland, busy wellness centres and hotels. I also have over four years of experience in the treatment of complex conditions at the Gateway Clinic, Lambeth Hospital in London, a busy Traditional Chinese Medicine centre on the British National Health Service (NHS).

I started working in Geneva in the spring 2012 and keep my main practice here. I am ASCA accredited, so your treatment costs in Switzerland can be reimbursed by your complementary health insurance. I am a former member of the British Acupuncture Council that guarantees that practitioners have achieved an approved standard of training in both Chinese and Western medicine.

I am happy to talk about any aspects of your health and treatment, so contact me if you would like to learn more about acupuncture and how it can help you.

I sought help from Slava for digestion and stress related issues. After a series of treatments and Slava’s practical holistic advice, I feel much better and am symptom-free. The treatments are gentle and effective and Slava is a kind and caring practitioner. I now go for a top-up balancing treatment once a month and feel much more balanced and centred.


Going to see Slava for acupuncture is a very healing experience. I was completely at ease from the moment I walked through the door and felt like I was in his competent care throughout all my sessions with him. I took various ailments to Slava throughout the months that I saw him, both physical and emotional, and was really surprised by the speed of the results and that the things that he predicted would happen actually did! I did not leave one session without feeling like my energy had been balanced in some way and was always infinitely more relaxed than when I’d come in! I am now a complete supporter of acupuncture and have a treatment whenever I can. For me it has relieved minor complaints, balanced my energy and provided me with some well needed relaxation in my busy week. Slava is a really gentle and warm, yet highly professional practitioner and I can’t recommend him highly enough!

J’ai reçu plusieurs traitements d’acupuncture par Slava Sviridovs entre septembre 2006 et mai 2007. Les affections couvertes par ces traitements étaient des douleurs de type rhumatismales aux deux épaules, une douleur intestinale aiguë et plusieurs affections des sinus. Les traitements ont dans tous les cas conduit a une amélioration significative de ma condition et dans le cas de la douleur intestinale a une guérison. La pratique de Slava est basée sur une approche très respectueuse du patient, prenant le temps d’expliquer le traitement envisage et assurant un état de relaxation du patient avant et pendant le traitement. Les soins donnés par Slava sont caractérises par la douceur, aussi bien dans la façon de s’exprimer que le contact physique avec le corps de ses patients.

I am a 70 years old woman who came for cosmetic acupuncture treatment a month ago. I did not expect to get such visible and efficient results from facial acupuncture, but I have to say that I am delighted and very pleased by the way my face glows after each treatment. The wrinkles on my forehead and around my mouth have considerably reduced. Having used Botox in the past, I much prefer the natural and less invasive method offered by Slava and will continue to use facial acupuncture.

I have never had any serious health problems and wanted to try acupuncture mainly out of curiosity. I must say that treatment with Slava was a pleasurable experience from the beginning till the end.

Slava has a very gentle and sensitive disposition, which is reflected in a way he treats his clients. He sees everybody as a unique individual with unique needs and tailors his treatment to suit these needs.

The opening interview was very easy-going. I trusted Slava straight away and didn’t have any difficulties to share my medical history with him. The actual acupuncture session went as smoothly as everything before – there was nothing to worry about. I could observe improvement in the areas we worked on only after a couple of short sessions.

All in all, I would highly recommend Slava to anybody considering alternative approach to traditional allopathic medicine. Very nice… Keep up the good work, Slava!


Fumeur depuis près de 10 ans (près de 15 cigarettes par jour), j’ai pris la décision d’arrêter il y a environ 3 mois. En dépit d’une forte volonté et d’une réelle motivation, je redoutais avant tout le sevrage. Une amie m’a donc conseillé l’acuponcture et de contacter Slava. Après 5 séances, 3 au cours de la première semaine et 2 autres espacées de près de 3 semaines chacune, les résultats sont étonnants: aujourd’hui grâce à Slava je ne fume plus !
