Developed and refined for thousands of years
I am a nurse and midwife with current registration with the NMC. I also have a BSc in traditional acupuncture from the Northern College of Acupuncture (Middlesex University) and have trained in medical acupuncture with the British Medical Acupuncture Society.
Acupuncture has benefits for a wide range of conditions with numerous approaches.
I predominantly (but not exclusively) see clients for conditions relating to fertility, pregnancy and women’s health. This includes, optimising natural fertility, support during assisted conception, IUI, IVF and ICSI. Throughout pregnancy I can help with threatened miscarriage, nausea and vomiting, anxiety and depression, pelvic girdle pain, restless legs, reflux, birth preparation, breech presentation and an unstable lie. Acupuncture can help to reduce the chance of post dates pregnancies and may be suitable for clients facing a planned induction of labour.
Acupuncture is effective to support women and relieve menopausal symptoms including hot flashes, irregular cycles and menstrual irregularities. It is also helpful for headaches and migraines.

My private clinic is held at 7 Embleton Drive, York YO30 5FA (U.K).I always take a detailed medical history and plan your treatment. Our initial meeting will take up to an hour and will cost £60. Subsequent sessions cost £45. If you would like to purchase a block of 5 sessions in advance for £225, a 6th session will be added to your account free of charge. Payment can be made by card, bank transfer of cash.
Needles are in place for around 20 minutes and you will have the chance to relax while they work.
Relief & healing
Acupuncture treatment affects your whole being as well as your symptoms. So, as the condition being treated improves you may notice other health problems resolving too and an increased feeling of well-being everywhere.
Acupuncture results in the body producing natural substances (such as pain-relieving endorphins). It’s likely that these naturally released substances are responsible for the beneficial effects experienced with acupuncture. It has been found that numerous conditions can be successfully treated with Acupuncture, including Chronic Back Pain, Sciatica, Frozen Shoulder, Knee Pain, IBS, Sinusitis, Sports Injuries, Menstrual Problems, Migraine and Anxiety, and the studies into Acupuncture continue.
