I am a qualified acupuncturist and studied for 3 years at Leeds Metropolitan University where I graduated in 2010 and obtained my BSc (Hons) in Acupuncture. I gained experience working in a busy clinic and treating a number of diverse conditions. I use Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) diagnosis and treatment principles. I have been practicing in Chester, Cheshire where I have had some amazing results working with patients treating a number of diverse conditions such as back pain, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, headaches and fertility just to mention a few! In April 2015 I joined the acupuncture team at the Reproductive Health Group (Daresbury, Warrington) where I carried out acupuncture before and after for ladies having their embryo transfer during IVF.
I have recently relocated to Morpeth in Northumberland where I will be rebuilding my practice, this is a new chapter of my life and am looking forward to very exciting times ahead!
Before beginning my acupuncture training I completed one years nursing training and have worked as a senior care assistant in a nursing and residential home as well as a dementia unit for a number of years. I have a good background in Western Medicine. I am originally from Alnwick in Northumberland.
Please feel free to browse the website and I look forward to hearing from you soon!
I am a full member of the British Acupuncture Council
Why is this important?
- The BAcC is the UK‟s largest regulatory body for practitioners of traditional acupuncture with around 3,000 members
- To achieve BAcC membership, practitioners must first undertake extensive training in traditional acupuncture and western biomedical sciences (min. 3 years full-time or parttime equivalent) which includes physiology, anatomy, differential diagnosis and the actions and side effects of commonly prescribed medication.
