Hi, I’m Sally, a classically trained Five Element acupuncturist. I’m passionate about Oriental medicine and its philosophies and I invest a lot of time deepening my skills and adding to my acupuncture toolkit.
I originally accessed Oriental medicine to help me with grief after my father died and the anxiety and depression that followed. As such, I have an affinity for helping those who are struggling with these conditions and usually find most complaints are rooted in the emotions – I love solving the riddle of where an illness originated.
Acupuncture is a wonderful system of medicine and it can help a wide range of conditions as it focuses on getting to the root cause of the problem rather than chasing symptoms. I have had great results for complaints ranging from sciatica to frozen shoulders, insomnia, migraines, help stopping smoking, weight loss and even helping to turn breech babies with the medicinal herb moxa.
I work from my home clinic in Leamington Spa and also from The Cottage Therapy Centre in Kenilworth and carry out home visits for those who are not able to travel for therapy.
In my spare time, I’m training to be a yoga teacher with the British Wheel of Yoga and I find the two disciplines of acupuncture and yoga complement each other excellently for strengthening mind, body and spirit.
As a member of the British Acupuncture Council I adhere to the its Codes of Safe Practice and Professional conduct. British Acupuncture Council members are registered with the Professional Standards Authority, which is a government body set up to regulate health and social care providers. I’m also an editorial team member of the BAcC’s membership magazine Acu., and this helps me to keep my finger on the pulse of the acupuncture community and its regulations.
My clinics are licensed by Warwick District Council and I hold full medical malpractice and public/products liability insurance cover.
