Sharon practices acupuncture using an integrated approach that combines Traditional Chinese Medicine with Five Element Acupuncture. Combining these she aims to get to the constitutional root of the condition to achieve long term health improvements. Treatments may also include the use of Tuina (a form of massage), Cupping, Moxibustion (a Chinese herb) and dietary advice – all of which will support the acupuncture treatment. Her experience as a therapist and broad knowledge of western medicine enables her to treat a wide range of conditions to restore and preserve health and wellbeing on both a physical and emotional level.
She has a particular interest in supporting patients who suffer from long term physical and emotional health problems in order for them to maintain health and prevent further illness. She also specialises in treating couples through their fertility journey and women through pregnancy, the post-natal period and menopause.
