About me

Linda Knight is highly qualified, insured and licensed in Acupuncture.  Additionally, she is also highly qualified and insured in Kinesiology and Nutritional Therapy.

Training, qualifications & experience

My original qualifications were in Accountancy (BScA) and Finance (MBA).  Ten years into my career my eldest child became acutely unwell and, after spending several nights with her in the Intensive Care Unit, I decided to change the focus of my work and retrain in the field of Nutrition.  I spent three years at the College of Naturopathic Medicine (CNM) in London and qualified as a Nutritional Therapist in February 2006.

I continued to expand my areas of expertise by qualifying in Systematic Kinesiology (2015).  Additionally, I attained a BSc (Hons) in Acupuncture from the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine (CICM) in Reading (2017).  CICM graduates are trained in both Five Elements and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

(1)  ACUPUNCTURE is a healthcare practice that has been used effectively for over two thousand years in the Far East.  It involves the gentle insertion of very fine needles into specific places on the body in order to stimulate the body's own healing processes.  It may be employed in the treatment of many distressing conditions including the following:

Pain:  Back pain, Knee pain, Frozen shoulder, Sports injuries, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Sciatica, Migraines/Headache, Arthritis, Menstrual pain, Bell's Palsy

Reproductive Health:  Menopausal symptoms, PMS, Morning sickness, Endometriosis, Irregular menstruation, Infertility, Other OB/GYN issues

Digestive Disorders:  Constipation, Diarrhoea, Heartburn, IBS, Gas/Bloating/Cramping

Respiratory Conditions: Asthma, Allergies, Chronic sinusitis, Cold/Flu

Mental/Emotional: Anxiety, Depression, Stress

General: Low Immunity, Insomnia, Fatigue

Addictions: Smoking and other

(2) SYSTEMATIC KINESIOLOGY uses muscle testing as a form of body language to assist the practitioner in understanding the client's current condition.  It is broadly based on acupuncture, but does not involve the use of needles, which many clients prefer.  It may be employed in the treatment of many conditions such as pain, stress, fears and phobias, food intolerance testing and supporting the emotions.

(3) NUTRITIONAL THERAPY is helpful in most situations as an inadequate or inappropriate diet is at the root of many health disturbances, regardless of how they present themselves.  Proper nutrition is the cornerstone of our health and it is as individual as we are.  Nutritional requirements may vary according to age, stress levels, medical history, pregnancy and many other considerations.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a therapist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the therapist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
