Cara is a fully qualified traditional acupuncturist having completed three years of degree-level study in 2015, at The Acupuncture Academy. She was awarded a Professional Licentiate in Acupuncture gaining a distinction and commendation for her clinical work.
She is both a member of the British Acupuncture Council and has full insurance. Her training was extensive and covered all aspects of Chinese medical and acupuncture theory with the focus on Five Element Theory. She also studied units on Western bio-medicine. A symptom, (whether that is: headache, skin condition, infertility, anxiety, exhaustion, back pain, frozen shoulder, insomnia, digestive issues etc) is the body trying to communicate that it is out of balance and needs some assistance in functioning at its best.
Often patients resolve their original symptoms and receive the benefit of being able to perform at higher levels e.g. improved energy, better sleep, elevated mood or in the case of chronic disease – the ability to maintain the condition with more ease. The beauty of Five Element is that she works with people as individuals, everyone’s system and personal experience is unique and she factors this into the diagnosis and treatment. In her experience, this holistic approach can provide some excellent results.
Five Element Acupuncture
Five Element acupuncture treats the root element of the disease, which allows your body to restore an optimum level of health naturally. She tailors treatment to an individual based on the theory of nature. By selecting points relevant to their imbalance, the body’s natural ability to heal is activated.
