What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a tried and tested system of complementary medicine. The Chinese and other eastern cultures have been using acupuncture for over two thousand years to restore, promote and maintain good health.
According to traditional Chinese philosophy, our physical and emotional well-being is dependent on the balanced flow of energy, otherwise known as ‘qi’ through the body. When the flow of ‘qi’ becomes stuck or unbalanced it can lead to ill health.
Through the insertion of ultra fine needles into specific points along these channels of energy, acupuncture can stimulate the body’s own healing response by removing any blockages and helping to restore its natural balance.
Nowadays more and more people are turning to acupuncture as a safe, natural medicine to treat long standing conditions or where conventional treatments have not helped.
Acupuncture is now widely used and accepted all over the world. In the UK there are over 3000 qualified acupuncturists registered with the British Acupuncture Council.

Becky trained at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading for 4 years obtaining an honours degree in Acupuncture. The college is considered one of the best Acupuncture training institutes in Europe. The acupuncture degree course is validated by Kingston University and accredited by the British Acupuncture Accreditation Board (BAAB). During her clinical training Becky was very fortunate to be supervised by John Hicks, joint principal of the college, who has over 30 years of practical experience in the fields of acupuncture and Chinese medicine.
Becky is a member of the British Acupuncture Council and abides by a code of ethics which maintains high standards of education, discipline and practice. Becky is covered by full public indemnity and liability insurance.
Becky practices a style of acupuncture which integrates two complementary forms:
• Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) which initially concentrates on physical signs and symptoms.
• Five Element Acupuncture, which approaches healing from an emotional and spiritual perspective.
Alongside acupuncture Becky also uses Tui Na (Chinese Medical Massage), Cosmetic Acupuncture (Facial Revitalisation) and Chinese Dietary Therapy in order to help patients regain good health. Becky has extensive training in Hypnotherapy.
Tui Na (Chinese Medical Massage)
Tui Na (pronounced Twee Na) is a massage therapy and, like acupuncture, has been used in China for over 2500 years. Tui Na is extremely effective at treating acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain and is an effective intervention for disc problems, frozen shoulder, sciatica, whiplash, back pain and joint pain. It is also useful in balancing the overall energy of the body and can treat a similar range of conditions as acupuncture. Tui Na massage is very relaxing and can be particularly useful to relieve stress and anxiety. Tui Na is a valid alternative for conditions that might otherwise be treated with prescription drugs or by osteopaths, chiropractors and physiotherapists. Treatment is usually administered through light clothing.
Facial acupuncture, otherwise known as ‘Facial Revitalisation Acupuncture’ is a new introduction in the West. It is a natural alternative to surgery offering a painless method of reducing the signs of the ageing process. Very fine needles are inserted into particular areas of the face and body according to the individual’s needs. Acupressure (gentle massage around the face) is incorporated into the treatment to further enhance the circulation and muscle tone.

Becky is committed to on-going professional development and continues to update her knowledge and skills by attending various postgraduate courses – recently in fertility and IVF.
In November 2008 Becky travelled to Guangzhou in China with 15 acupuncture practitioners to observe Chinese Medicine being practiced in one of China’s most modern hospitals. This was an invaluable experience and provided Becky with additional experience which she has incorporated into her working practice. This was a trip of a lifetime and was a great way of experiencing the Chinese culture.
