FAQs

Acupuncture is just one modality within Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), which also includes herbal treatment, dietary and lifestyle guidance.
One of the oldest known forms of medicine, dating back thousands of years, acupuncture has gained widespread global acceptance in the last century. It’s now sometimes practiced in more conventional settings such as allopathic clinics and hospitals. Occasionally it’s even offered through the NHS here in the UK.
Treatment can be focused on alleviating pain, healing a physical injury, addressing more complex internal disease conditions, and/or supporting mental-emotional health.
Not only is acupuncture virtually painless, it’s also a calming, safe and effective way to restore your health and well-being.

Not usually though sometimes you might feel a strong sensation when the needles are inserted. We use extremely thin (the thickness of a human hair), filiform (solid rather than hollow) needles. They feel very different (and far less painful!) than the larger, hollow, hypodermic needles you might have experienced if you’ve ever had a blood test or an injection.
There are a wide range of conditions that we treat and techniques that we can use. A skilled acupuncturist treating certain conditions may choose a more intense technique - with your consent - if that will produce the desired therapeutic outcomes.
We can also needle so that you barely feel it at all. I am right there with you throughout every treatment so if any needle is painful or uncomfortable after insertion, I can easily remove or adjust it for you. You are in control at all times!

As acupuncture becomes more popular, it’s especially important to find a practitioner who is well trained.
I personally have completed a 3 year, full time Acupuncture programme which included 2490 hours of teaching and 678 hours of clinical training. I graduated in 2011 and have had a successful private practice ever since.
I’m a member of the Association of Acupuncture Clinicians (AAC) which sits under the umbrella of the British Acupuncture Federation (BAF).
In November 2021 the British Acupuncture Federation managed to upgrade Acupuncturists 100 places on the Office of National Statistics into the same category as other Healthcare professionals such as Osteopaths and Physiotherapists.

Owing to my membership of the AAC, some clients will be able to reclaim some partial or full cost of treatments through their health insurance. Please ask me for more details.

I have continued to further my training over the last 12 years and most recently have completed qualifications in Hand, Leg, Foot and Facial Lift massage.
I also taught the fertility module for the College of Living Nutrition in 2021.
Since you may want to research and try a few practitioners to find your perfect fit, I offer a free, no obligation 10-15 minute chat so that we can discuss your situation and decide together if you’d like to give acupuncture a go.
I’d like to assure you when you work with me, you are in a safe, confidential space where I will use all my skills to help you heal and feel your best.

As an acupuncturist, I can address symptoms of acute and chronic conditions affecting your physical and emotional health.

Examples include: acne and skin conditions, alcohol abuse disorder and other addictions, allergies, autoimmune conditions, chronic fatigue syndrome, constipation, diabetes, endocrine and thyroid imbalances, high blood pressure, IBS, immune system support, insomnia, metabolic disorders, parasitic infections, peri-menopausal and menopausal syndrome, physical pain and injury, PMS and menstrual irregularities, fertility, stress and anxiety.
In addition I am trained to deliver Facial Enhancement Acupuncture which is a form of natural skin rejuvenation.
