I studied Traditional Chinese Acupuncture at Manchester Metropolitan University and achieved a first class honours degree.
I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council. The British Acupuncture Council guarantees excellence in training, in addition to adherence to the Council's Codes of Safe Practice and Professional Conduct.
Courses attended include- Advanced auricular acupuncture taught by Jim Chalmers, Master Tung acupuncture, meridian wave acupuncture and channel palpation theory. Regular attendance at British Acupuncture Council Conferences and regional group meetings keeps me up to date with current research.
BSc (Hons) Acupuncture, Bachelor of Veterinary medicine and Surgery ( BVMS) Certificate in tertiary Education (CETE)
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.
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.
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.
Please note the rates detailed below are there to give you an idea of the therapists standard rates, we strongly advise you contact the therapist for more detailed rates and any offers they may have.
|Acupuncture||In Person||£40 per 50 minutes|
Initially it is suggested that you may wish to come in for a free 15 minute chat, or phone for a chat, to see if acupuncture is suitable for you and your condition and this gives you the chance to ask any questions before you commit to treatment. The first visit is usually longer than subsequent sessions. This allows time for an in-depth consultation, assessment of your condition and overall health and also to have treatment. The cost is £40 per treatment session
