Acupuncture is an ancient practice dating back 2,000-3,000 years. Acupuncture uses very fine single-use sterilised needles which are finer than a hair. There are a number of different styles of acupuncture and I practice Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). TCM can be used to treat a variety of health conditions. Please contact me to find out how it can help you.
A consultation will assess all areas of your health to build up an overall understanding of your health. Acupuncture and other techniques such as cupping, moxibustion and gua sha will be used to treat your pattern of disharmony and work towards achieving optimal health.
My main interests are women’s health related, including regulating the menstrual cycle, fertility, pregnancy, postnatal recovery and menopause. I have done significant research into the treatment of dysmenorrhoea (period pain) as part of my training as well as case studies on amenorrhoea (absence of periods) and eczema.

Important information for choosing your Acupuncturist
Please be aware that in the UK, Acupuncture is not legally regulated, which means that anyone can practice Acupuncture. In Bristol you have to have a licence from Bristol City Council to confirm that your premises are suitable and the practitioner understands how to ensure adequate cleanliness. This is because Acupuncture pierces the skin so it is very important that you see someone who has been well trained.
A lot of Acupuncturists will choose to be members of self regulating professional bodies. I am a member of The British Acupuncture Council. I am able to join this professional body due to my high quality training consisting of 3,600 hours over 4 years and 400 hours of clinical experience.
When seeking an Acupuncturist, I would urge you to ask the following important questions:
1. What training have you had and how many hours did the course cover?
2. To which professional body are you a member and are you insured?
3. Are you registered with your Local Authority?
If your Acupuncturist can answer these three questions well, you should be in safe hands.
