The New Season of Spring - A time of surging growth
The arrival of Spring,delayed this year by the snow and cold winds, brings us longer daylight and in due course, warmth. Maybe due to the greyness of last summer you are not feeling as you would like to and expect to feel. There are certain body points that can help to lift one's mood and allow you to feel more harmonious with your self and surroundings in this very changeable season.Hayfever
With the arrival of Spring, comes other changes that may be not so welcome in the form of hayfever. Itchy eyes, a runny nose and frequent sneezing are just a few of the miseries that will afflict hay fever sufferers over the summer months. The UK has one of highest prevalence rates for hay fever in the world. As pollen levels soar, the number of UK sufferers could reach over 15 million: that’s 20-25% of the UK population, making the spring and summer seasons a miserable time for many. Sessions of treatment
Weekly treatments are applied for over a 3-4 week period although this does vary for each person depending on the severity of their allergy. A course of 4-6 sessions before the hay fever season starts however can greatly reduce the severity and onset of symptoms and if repeated the following year the effect can be enhanced dramatically I am a registered acupuncturist in Shropshire and licensed by The British Acupuncture Council who regulate the Codes of Practice.

At the beginning of the sessions, there will be an assessment of which points to use and then an application of local anaesthetic cream. The points can be used without cream but it is more relaxing to use it. To complete the health session, you will benefit from having well-being points, to maintain good health, which is usually done while the anaesthetic cream takes effect.
As the session is non-surgical, you can carry on with the rest of your day as normal after the one hour appointment.

I became an acupuncturist after receiving treatment for a severe muscle spasm. The local hospital was unable to help but I was recommended an acupuncturist and she treated me. So began my interest in complementary therapy.
My previous career was in dental hygiene, which I had been doing since 1976, mainly in London.
My new career since 1993, as an acupuncturist in Shropshire, is much more rounded as it encompasses everything in one's life. My previous career did give me a sound knowledge of physiology and anatomy which I have found to be really invaluable for medical and musculo-skeletal problems although the art of acupuncture is always present.Clinics and Contact details
