I have received further guidelines from my professional body, The British Acupuncture Council who have stated that as of the 4th July 2020 for Acupuncture I can return to careful practice. This is great news, however I have now been left in a rather frustrating situation of having no clinic to practice from!
I no longer have my room at Heworth and my other clinic on 61 Micklegate, York is still closed and have no date yet as to when that will reopen.
I am sorry I still have no date but hopefully it won t be too long before I can get back to doing what I love and thank you all for your patience. ... See MoreSee Less

UPDATE..... Following government guidelines and my professional body The British Acupuncture council I am still unable to give you all a confirmed date of when I can reopen my clinic. However I am making preparations for my return in order to ensure my business is Covid-19 secure. I will provide further updates once I know when I can reopen. In the meantime stay safe and stay well. ... See MoreSee Less
Yay!! Hope it’s soon xx
Fingers crossed it’s not too long
Thank you AcuPro Academy for sharing this. After trying this myself it made a huge difference to my hormonal health. It did seem an effort at the beginning and you have to really stick at it but after about 3 months I started to reap the benefits of seed cycling. I would highly recommend trying it. A few months ago I wrote a blog on my website about this very topic! Go to www.sbacupuncture.co.uk to check it out.Do you recommend Seed Cycling to your female patients?
🌰 In my practice, I treat a lot of women with hormonal imbalances, and many come in especially for fertility support. With each patient, I form a TCM diagnosis and an individualized treatment plan, which always includes nutrition.
🌰 Enter: Seeds and Seed Cycling!
Are you familiar with this western nutritional support to help balance women’s hormones?
🌰 Usually, 4 kind of seeds are added to the diet daily, and rotated based on the follicular and luteal phases.
- From Day 1 to Day 14 (or until ovulation): it is recommended to take 1 tablespoon each of flax seeds and pumpkin seeds daily.
- And from Day 15 (or after ovulation) to Day 28, or until menstruation starts: it’s recommended to take 1 tablespoon each sunflower and sesame seeds daily.
🌰 Lots of studies show pumpkin seeds are high in zinc which supports progesterone release and flax seeds contain lignans which block excess estrogen. Sesame seeds, also contain lignans, while sunflower seeds provide the body with selenium, assisting the liver in detoxification.
How does TCM fit into this equation?
🌰 In Chinese medicine, seeds are said to help tonify TCM Kidneys and nourish Essence, which in turn can help the reproductive system. Seeds are great for fertility. Because we need a seed to create a seed (a fetus)!
🌰 I really love that both western and eastern nutrition recommend seeds for fertility!
Below, I created a quick chart with the properties and functions of seeds and nuts according to TCM. My favourites are sunflowers seeds, almonds and pistachios. May be because all 3 lubricate the Large Intestine 😀
And if you haven’t checked out my “Complete Fertility & TCM treatments” course yet!

There are so many benefits to walking, it is not only totally free but also has many physical and mental health positives too. Whilst currently we may not be able to go as far on our walks as we would like it is still possible to get some walking in local to where you live. I am lucky in that I have some incredibly beautiful walks on my doorstep but for those of you who live in urban areas just getting out can boost your mental mood as it stops you feeling quite so isolated.
Just 10 minutes of brisk walking, more if you can, will help strengthen your heart, lower blood sugar levels, help boost your immune system and actually increase your energy levels. When you feel low in mood it can make you feel you have no energy and can sometimes feel a huge effort to get out but once you do you will feel better both physically and mentally.
I love this little quote from Hippocrates 5th/4th Centuries BCE “walking is man’s best medicine”.

I get to look at this wonderful cherry blossom tree at the bottom of my garden each year as it comes into blossom. Each year the blossom blooms it is always amazing and totally stunning but none so much as this year. Despite all that is happening in the world right now, nature goes on bringing beauty into every day. #feelinggrateful🙏 #acupuncturist#spring#acupunctureworks#onedayatatime #lookingforward#traditionalchinesemedicine#acupunturerules#liveyourbestlife#acupuncturelife#cherryblossoms#lifewillgetbetter#sbacuounctureclinic ...

When we feel under stress we can almost forget to breathe. Really feel the air you breathe in through your nose and into your lungs then feel the air leave through your mouth. Try the 4x4 breathing breath in for a count of 4 then exhale for a count of 4. See how much better you feel after this simple exercise. ... See MoreSee Less
It is with a very heavy heart that I have decided to close for now. This has not been an easy decision and I have really struggled with it over the past few days. I need to think about you and myself and not put either of us at any kind of risk, even with stringent cleaning regimes neither of us can guarantee that we are virus free and as we know my treatments are all hands on. Despite this being a heartbreaking decision I feel it is the right one for us all.
My business is very new and in its fledging stage and I want to thank each and everyone of you who have supported me in being able to do something that I love. I will be back and will be constantly reviewing the situation. I will still be posting and I am still available to offer advice online or via phone. Stay in touch and I will with you all. Love and light to you all. Susannah ... See MoreSee Less
Sorry to hear but you’ll do amazing when your business bounces back as you care so much about your patients. Stay well lovely 💜🌏😘xx
Stay safe and hope your business bounces back after this madness. Sending love and strength. X
Well done Susannah. Your business will recover. I'm doing the same. Sending love xx
For the time being I am still open for appointments, however as we are all aware this is a rapidly changing and ever evolving situation which can change hour by hour and day by day.
For the patients I have already got booked in, I will be contacting you individually to discuss your current health, if you have been in contact with anyone with Covid-19 symptoms or if you have travelled abroad in the last 14 days. For more information on Covid -19 symptoms please go to www.gov.uk/government/topical-events/coronavirus-covid-19-uk-government-response.
I can assure you that I abide by strict hygiene regulations as standard but this has been intensified. I am buffering patients so that I have 30 mins between patients so that I can fully wash down and sanitise the couch and sides. I also ask that upon your arrival you wash your hands and use the hand gel provided. My goal is to keep you, myself and the clinic space safe.
If you wish to cancel your appointment, even at the last minute I completely understand and can as an alternative provide online advice such as lifestyle and acupressure that you can do at home.
I want to thank you all for your continued support In these incredibly difficult times. Susannah ... See MoreSee Less
