Acupuncture for Pain & Holistic Wellbeing 



My name is Ana and I have over 15 years of experience in the field of healing. I hold a BSc Hons in Acupuncture by the Northern College of Acupuncture (York) and I practice both traditional Chinese and Western/medical acupuncture.

What makes my practice different is that I have always been aware of the relationship between the mind, emotions, body, social factors, religion/spirituality. All these dimensions of the human experience have a crucial influence in our experience of pain (emotional and/or physical), ailments, how they appear in our lives, how we sustain them, how we perceive them and how we can shift them into healing. Such holistic awareness is present in all my therapies and brings quantifiable results.

COVID-19 Guidelines for your Appointments

  • On arrival, please ring the bell and wait outside the hairdresser. I will take your temperature with a no-touch digital thermometer. If your temperature is above 37.5 Celsius, you will have to leave and call your doctor as you may have to isolate for 10 days.

  • PPE will not be provided; you are to bring your own mask.

  • Bring your bottled water as we are not allowed to use water dispensers yet.

  • On entering the studio, you will be prompted to wash your hands or use hand sanitising gel.

  • It is now mandatory for businesses like mine to comply with the Track and Trace scheme. The QR code is displayed at the door of the studio. Please scan. However, it is not mandatory for you to do so. For more information and to download the app, click here.

  • Payments: I take cash, bank transfers and card.

  • Before treatment you will be asked to sign a disclaimer confirming that neither you nor anyone you have been in touch with, have had any symptoms within the previous 14 days. The symptoms are:

    • fever

    • loss of sense of smell

    • difficulty breathing

    • fatigue

    • persistent dry cough

  • Cleaning and disinfection of the premises is always thorough.

Expert doctors in England have identified specific medical conditions that, based on what we know about the virus so far, place some people at greatest risk of severe illness from coronavirus. Disease severity, history or treatment levels will also affect who is in this group. REFRAIN FROM BOOKING A MASSAGE IF YOU FALL INTO ANY OF THESE GROUPS.

Thank you very much for your collaboration!

Does your insurance cover acupuncture?

It is always worth checking beforehand if my services are covered by your health insurance. Some people are covered by their employer's insurance too.
