Acupuncture is a system of healing which has been practised in China and other eastern countries for over 3000 years. Although often associated with a treatment for pain relief, acupuncture can be used to treat many common health complaints.

Acupuncture is recognised by the World Health Organisation in treating a wide range of health conditions, relieving pain and promoting good health. Acupuncture helps the body release endorphins (the body's natural painkillers), relaxing muscle spasms, re-balancing hormones, reducing inflammation and stimulating the body's healing response.

The National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) recommends Acupuncture as an effective treatment for lower back, osteoarthritis of the knee, to enhance fertility and for the relief of headaches.

Acupuncture is an effective and safe treatment to help treat both chronic and acute conditions. It can help relieve the symptoms of:

  • Acute & longstanding back & neck pain
  • Sciatica, frozen shoulder, knee or ankle pain
  • Headaches & migraine
  • Bowel complaints such as IBS, Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn's
  • Sinusitis
  • Period pain, PMT, fertility issues, Polycystic ovary syndrome
  • Morning sickness, back pain during pregnancy, breech position
  • Hormonal imbalances such as Menopausal symptoms, PMT or Polycystic ovary syndrome.

The principal aim of acupuncture is to treat the whole person, creating a sense of equilibrium between the physical, emotional and the mind of the individual.

Acupuncture is a safe and effective non-pharmacological based treatment that is suitable for all ages. For those who have a fear of needles, Acupressure can be used as an alternative treatment. I have experience of treating all ages from four years to those in their nineties who have a number of different conditions, from pain management to fertility.

All needles are individually packaged and sterile and are clinically disposed of after use.

I did my initial training in TCM Acupuncture at the Northern College of Acupuncture in York and then went on to do further study at Middlesex University in the Chinese Classics and Acupuncture. I have also completed further study in Cosmetic Acupuncture, Fire cupping, Tongue Diagnosis for Digestive problems and other subjects.

I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council and registered with Harrogate Borough Council as an approved Acupuncturist.
