I am a TCM acupuncturist, having trained at the renowned Northern College of Acupuncture in York. I am accredited and insured with the British Acupuncture Council. I am Professional Development Lead on behalf of the British Acupuncture Council which involves ensuring standards of practice and education are maintained to the highest level by members.
To become a member of the British Acupuncture Council my acupuncture training comprised of of a minimum of 3600 hours of which 1200 was clinic hours. The World Health Organisation (WHO) minimum requirement is 2500 hours with 1000 clinic hours.
I have clinics in Halifax, Huddersfield and Elland, near Halifax and I also provide mobile acupuncture services to patients in their own homes. This service is ideal for people who have mobility problems or suffering from conditions that cause them problems getting about e.g. sciatica, back problems, etc. or who have disability.
As well as acupuncture I also deliver acupressure massage, cupping, gua sha, cosmetic acupuncture/facial rejuvenation and ear acupuncture including Battlefield Acupuncture which is specific to pain management. .
I treat a range of conditions and have developed an interest and expertise in fertility including ART/IVF and recurrent miscarriages, morning sickness and nausea, menstrual problems, insomnia and sleeping problems, anxiety and depression, stress management, headaches and migraines, sciatica and low back pain and osteoarthritis. I am a pain specialist with advanced training in ear acupuncture which I combine with bodywork or not.
I provide late afternoon and evening appointments, ending at 9pm during week days except Friday and work Saturdays to accommodate patients who are unable to attend week day appointments. This applies to home visits as well as those in the clinics.
I own the acUtreat brand and have developed a set of simple self care ear seed kits suitable for anyone to use by themselves at home. These are completely brand new products not available from any other acupuncturist in the UK or EU and provide no needle acupuncuture using the principles to ear acupuncture.
