It’s been a very long 2 months of getting my clinic ready and at times I never thought I would get there but finally today I opened my doors to my patients once more and felt so incredibly proud of what I have created.
It’s coming together, had a flat pack kinda day. So looking forward to doing what I love and that is treating patients ❤️#flatpackfurniture#scratchingmyhead#willallbeworthitintheend#acupuncturroom#acupuncturebusiness#acupuncturelife# acupuncture rocks #sbacupunctureclinic... See MoreSee Less
Love this little analogy between Eastern and western medicineTrying to fit Chinese medicine into the framework of modern biomedicine doesn't work. It's like asking a poet to write a technical manual. #acupuncturerocks #acupuncture #acupunctureworks #acupuncturestudent #chinesemedicine #tcm #traditionalchinesemedicine #yinyang #traditionalchinesemedicine ...

Finally we are making progress! So all the painting is complete and today my flooring has been completed. Massive thanks to Dave Hartas carpet and vinyl fitter for such a fabulous and efficient service. Things should move quite swiftly now. The next step is licensing which should not be too long. Hope you like the photos. It’s situated at the Eco Business centre in Clifton Moor. Where we are all small businesses in a very quiet and tranquil environment. ... See MoreSee Less

So I am now officially a Mental Health First Aider. I did this course to really be in a position to offer help to anyone suffering a mental health issue that comes to my clinic and friends and most of all for myself. This should be seen in the workplace and educational establishments as important as physical first aid. 1 in 4 of us will over the course of a year suffer from a mental health issue. (MHFA England, 2016).
I only now feel able to talk openly about my own struggles with my own mental health over the course of my life. I ended up reaching a very dark place towards the end of 2018 in the middle of my degree. What I want you all to know is that up until I did this course I just did not know there was so much help out there. My biggest fear was going to the GP but you can actually self refer to the IAPT www.iapt.nhs.uk if you feel you cannot see your GP and lastly please please talk to someone if you feel in distress and please give yourself some self care and love.
Let’s all work together to make positive changes around this so that mental health can be accepted a a normal part of life not hidden away. ... See MoreSee Less
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
Acupressure self-care: a kind approach for mental ill health by Mark Bovey, Head of Research Mental ill health is one of the foremost reasons for people in the UK to consult traditional acupuncturists...
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 😀
