I am an acupuncturist and maternity complementary therapist in North Staffordshire
...who specialises in acupuncture and natural therapies aimed at promoting and maintaining good health and well-being in relation to pregnancy and fertility, including women’s health and gynaecological issues. I am an experienced research midwife, researcher of complementary medicine and have been actively involved in many contemporary midwifery and gynaecological clinical trials. I lecture and teach acupuncture and massage in pregnancy to midwives with Expectancy, the leading provider of accredited complementary therapy courses for midwives.
Since qualifying in massage and aromatherapy in the late 1990’s, my professional development for the last 20 years has focused around pregnancy and childbirth, reproductive health and complementary medicine. I have acquired university qualifications, accredited education and training with principal providers of professional education within this specialist area. I completed the BSc (Hons) degree in Complementary Therapies at the University of Staffordshire some years ago and have never looked back. I maintain my own continued professional development portfolio and my passion for acupuncture has lead me to pursue further study in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
My philosophy is to ensure the safe use of complementary medicine in this specialist area and I am committed to facilitating natural birth through natural therapies and providing satisfying experiences for women. I have seen the impact of stress, anxiety, pregnancy and infertility symptoms on women in my private practice and I am keen to develop services accessible to all.
My aim is to offer professional, individualised care which supports women through their fertility and pregnancy journeys, through providing acupuncture and natural therapies which I am passionate about and research has shown to have the ability to promote a greater sense of health and well-being, this I consider to be a rewarding experience and draws on so many of my skills.
