Training, qualifications & experience
Our Experienced Practitioner - Background
Toni has previously worked within NHS hospitals across the South-East and beyond for over twenty years. Her professional health career began as a Radiotherapy Radiographer, specialising in Oncology and Cancer Care. Toni has BSc (Hons) degree in Radiography & Oncology and Post Graduate qualifications in Health and Social Care.
For many years Toni worked closely with patients of all ages and has a deep understanding of the physical and also emotional needs of individuals. Toni has always had a clear focus on health and well-being. Especially how different medical practices and teachings can help us understand our mental, physical and emotional health.
Consequently, over eighteen years ago Toni trained as an acupuncturist, achieving degree level qualification, after becoming fascinated in the philosophies and teachings of Traditional Medicine. Recognising the long history of this practise, in the East, and its impact on patients and their illnesses, Toni graduated from the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine. Recognising the need of incorporating complementary treatments into healthcare, after graduating, Toni established an acupuncture clinic within an NHS Cancer Centre, whilst also running her clinic in Crowthorne. Toni was able to demonstrate the effects and set a precedent for combining complementary treatments and conventional medicine.
Today Toni maintains her work in oncology and works as the support acupuncturist for Penny Brohn UK at the Genesis Care facility in Windsor.
Her Clinic in Crowthorne is where many patients see Toni for a variety of health conditions from Tennis Elbow to Irritable Bowel, Depression and Anxiety, Headaches and Migraines, Womens Health and many other conditions. For more information please call for an initial consultation.

Testimonials Here are a few comments from people I have treated
"After suffering with endometriosis for years, taking various medication and surgery I decided to try acupuncture. Toni made me feel at ease straight away and was able to talk me through how treatments would work and the effect on my symptoms.
After 2 or 3 treatments I saw a huge improvement on the regularity of my cycle and even more so in the reduction of pain. I reduced treatments to monthly and am so grateful to finally be able to live a normal life again."
"I can thoroughly recommend Toni Hennings for acupuncture treatment. She provides a warm, comfortable and calming environment and treats with a very caring, intuitive and professional nature."
