"Lucy helped me massively with managing my symptoms of PTSD. She is super knowledgeable in TCM, has a kind, caring demeanour and took the time to go through the underlining factors to enable me to get the most out of my treatments. I always left a treatment feeling significantly better than I did when I went in" - James H (2024)

"I started to see Lucy with lower back problems. I struggled with stairs, now I don't. Those issues are now totally resolved. I continue to see Lucy as her sessions have provided so much more, such as helping me with my anxiety. I don't know how it works but it does! I'm so glad I saw her advert and made contact." - E.C, Hulme (2024)

Acupuncture for babies, children and teenagers:

Information for parents

Lucy has trained at Post Graduate level with Rebecca Avern, Paediatric specialist and has extensive knowledge of treating babies, children and teenagers:

  • Sleep issues
  • Digestive issues (diarrhoea, constipation, vomiting)
  • Food allergies
  • Cough
  • Asthma
  • Eczema
  • Ear infections and glue ear
  • Bed-wetting
  • Acute conditions
  • Mental-emotional issues such as anxiety and depression
  • Problems associated with Autistic Spectrum disorders
  • Behavioural conditions such as Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Supporting children pre and post vaccination

As with adults, acupuncture is a safe, effective and gentle way of helping babies and children grow and develop with ease.

  • I welcome each child in their own unique way, taking into account their nature and creating a unique treatment plan especially for them.
  • Unsure whether your child will tolerate needles? No problem! I use a variety of non-needle techniques - and can teach parents to use these at home too. Unlike with adults, up to the age of 7 needles are inserted and withdrawn straight away. So no need to worry about whether your child will sit still!
  • I use very fine, gentle needles; and no more than three are inserted per treatment until adolescence.
  • I want your child to feel at ease, and enjoy coming for treatment, so I will spend some time chatting to them about their life and getting to know them. The treatment will go entirely at their pace, will be interactive and playful.
  • I have books, toys and stickers, and children are welcome to bring in their own comforting item if they feel they need it.
  • I am a mother, and treat my own children (one needle lover, one not so much!). It is a joy to be able to involve little people in the wonders of TCM, and allow them to interpret it through their own eyes and play.

About Me

Having graduated from the Northern College of Acupuncture, York (industry leaders awarding acupuncture degrees for 33 years) with a BSC Hons in Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncture, I continue to be amazed by the wonders of TCM throughout my working life in clinic.

I am a member of our professional body the British Acupuncture Council and am fully insured by them. I maintain their strict codes of professional practise.

I truly believe everyone deserves the chance to be heard, rested and in the best health they can be; and acupuncture allows us to do all three at once. I am fortunate to have many friends and family in the profession, and enjoy regular treatments myself.

I am passionate about acupuncture, and the many different ways in which one can practise; and I am committed to growing my knowledge and continuing my learning with regular and continued professional development for as long as I am practising.

"What happens during treatment (adults)?"

  1. We'll start with a chat, asking about current symptoms, any new ones, or any medical updates. It's helpful to bring medical updates as you receive them (i.e. blood test or scan results). I will give lifestyle advice - food in Chinese Medicine plays a big role in nourishing our qi and blood, and making simple changes are beneficial alongside having acupuncture .
  2. You'll then have a moment to get yourself comfortable on the treatment couch, and I'll then have a look at your tongue and check your pulse. Here we can pick up disharmonies amongst the organs and confirm your treatment plan.
  3. I'll then insert 10-15 very fine needles; these can be on your arms, legs, abdomen, head and feet if supine, or if prone along your back. It isn't painful, but we can go at your own pace. I am trained in the NADA protocol and sometimes practise ear needling. I wear a mask during treatment following British Acupuncture Council guidelines.
  4. You are then free to relax with music or without for the remainder of the hour (usually 20-30 minutes). I often use a heat lamp on cold patients, and/or moxa, which is the gentle and nourishing burning of Chinese Mugwart used to warm channels and expel cold.
  5. Patients find they deeply relax during this time, or fall asleep, until it is the end of the treatment. I will email any advice discussed during the session.
