My name is Sally Crowther and I’m a fully qualified, traditional acupuncturist working from a quiet and relaxing clinic in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire. I graduated from The Acupuncture Academy in 2015 and was awarded a Professional Licentiate in Acupuncture. My training was extensive and covered all aspects of Chinese medical and acupuncture theory, with a focus on the five element approach. This means I will consider your main health problem when designing your treatment plan, as well as taking a more holistic approach to you as an individual rather than simply focusing on your symptoms. As well as offering acupuncture, I also use moxibustion, which involves the burning of the herb mugwort, to help promote healing. I also use cupping, gua sha and tui na, which are different types of deep tissue massage, chosen depending on the type of ailment being treated. I have a foundation certificate in Kiiko Matsumo style Japanese acupuncture and in auricular (ear) acupuncture and Korean Hand Therapy.
I have experience helping people with a variety of conditions, from complaints such as shoulder injuries to help turning breech babies and supporting women undergoing IVF. I have a special interest in working with the emotions and helping those with anxiety and depression. On Mondays, I volunteer for Birmingham charity Freshwinds where I see people with a wide range of complaints from spinal stenosis to leukaemia, breast cancer and other debilitating illnesses.
I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council, for which I also sit as a volunteer on the editorial committee of its member magazine, Acu. I adhere to the Council’s Codes of Safe Practice and Professional conduct. British Acupuncture Council members are also registered with the Professional Standards Authority, which is a government body set up to regulate health and social care providers, and is accountable to Parliament.
My clinic is licensed by Warwick District Council and I hold full medical malpractice and public/products liability insurance cover.
