Hi, I’m Caroline Somp. I’m Swedish so my name is pronounced Caroleen, but I usually call myself Carolyn, for simplicity. I’ve lived in the UK since 2004 and am very happy here.
I’m a firm believer in the intelligence of the body and of working together, so I offer my patients self-help resources as well as individualised care plans.
I treat at the Centre of Complementary Medicine in Petersfield on Tuesdays (2pm-8pm) and Thursdays (9am-1pm) and at the Healthway Centre in Alresford on Mondays (3pm-6pm), Wednesdays (9am-1pm) and Sundays (3pm-7pm).
Feel free to contact me if you're wondering whether acupuncture could help you, I'm happy to discuss and quick to get back to you over the phone or email.
Training, qualifications & experience
I studied Acupuncture at the renowned College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading for nearly four years, becoming a licensed acupuncturist and gaining a BSc degree. I also keep adding to my skills and knowledge by attending courses and reading up on ways to help my patients.
I’m a member of the British Acupuncture Council, the main regulatory body for the safe practice of acupuncture in the UK that set high standards of education, ethics, discipline and practice.
Treatments are £56 for the first session at an hour and £48 for follow ups that take 45 minutes.
Whether you are suffering from long-standing symptoms, just don’t feel quite right or want to invest in your future vitality, acupuncture can help you find out what is causing your imbalances and support your body in addressing them. This is done by inserting fine needles into specific points on the body. Each of these points have individual effects on the body’s equilibrium.
What patients say:
"I have had treatments with Caroline over a period of 10 months and in that time have found her to be very professional, efficient and more importantly, caring. She is very gentle and kind, and takes the time to listen to my problems and really hear what I say." FB, Hampshire
"After an acupuncture session with Caroline I felt well balanced, both bodily and mentally. Caroline has a gentle nature and is a very caring person. She is extremely professional and makes you feel you’re in safe hands with someone who knows what they’re doing and who cares for your well being." VC, Hampshire
If you have been diagnosed with or suspect you may have a pre-existing medical condition you should consult your GP for advice, diagnosis and treatment and always inform your health professional before starting any alternative or additional therapies, treatments or making any major changes in your diet or exercise programme.
