My name is Catriona Jennings. I am interested in helping people achieve good health through the use of Traditional Chinese acupuncture.
I enjoy studying and attending courses to update my knowledge and clinical skills. I have especially enjoyed studying auricular acupuncture with Jim Chalmers as auricular acupuncture can be useful in treating a wide range of conditions.

I have an interest in meditation and stress reduction using visualisation and relaxation techniques.
I enjoy Qi gong, yoga and walking in the countryside.

My degree in Veterinary Medicine and Surgery and work in this field has given me a strong foundation in disease pathology and pharmacology. I always enjoy meeting new people and over the years have developed skills in communication although I don't have formal counselling qualifications.

My Specialisms

Much of my work focuses on pain management as many patients seek acupuncture for chronic pain. This can cover many conditions such as headaches
musical-skeletal problems, digestive issues and many more. I am also interested in neurological conditions, women's health, stress and anxiety reduction and insomnia.

Approach to Therapy & How I Work

I like to use a very traditional Chinese approach to acupuncture, taking time to choose an appropriate treatment plan based on holistic principles. I also often suggest dietary and exercise advice based again on Traditional Chinese principles which can help compliment acupuncture and speed up recovery. I always enjoy meeting new people and working with them to improve both physical and emotional health.
