About Me

A passion for medicine and the wellbeing of my patients

My name is Nicola and I qualified in Five Element Acupuncture with Distinction at The Acupuncture Academy in Leamington Spa.


I have a passion for medicine and the wellbeing of my patients. Five Element Acupuncture is said to be one of the oldest practices. Treating the constitution of the person focusing on their mind and body rather than just symptoms. I have a passion for treating pain, fibromyalgia, anxiety, insomnia, migraines and fertility.

I first found the benefits of acupuncture for pain then it helped me with anxiety and bereavement, it’s something I found really healed and decided that I needed to understand more how this worked.
