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 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 and 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.
