About Sharon

Sharon Waltho

I have been working as a complementary therapist since 2003 and as an acupuncturist since 2015.  I trained for four years at the internationally renowned College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading, where I attained a first class BSc (Hons) degree and Licentiate (LicAc) in Acupuncture.  More recently I completed a diploma to specialise in gynaecology, fertility and obstetrics.

I practice acupuncture using an integrated approach that combines Traditional Chinese Medicine with Five Element Acupuncture. Combining these I aim to find the root of the condition to help you achieve long term health improvements for a wide range of physical and emotional issues.  This is done through the use of acupuncture and the following may also be used to help support the treatment

  • Tuina (a form of massage)
  • Cupping (suction cups are placed on the skin that may help with pain, blood flow or inflammation)
  • Moxibustion (a Chinese herb)
  • Dietary advice

Special interests include supporting patients with long term physical and emotional problems to improve health and prevent further illness. I am also passionate about treating gynaecological issues and supporting couples through their fertility journey.  This includes helping  women through their pregnancy, the post-natal period and menopause.

I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC), which is the largest regulatory body for practitioners of traditional acupuncture. It maintains high standards of training, safe practice and professional conduct and also compiles and provides the latest evidence based research on acupuncture. Currently it lists over 30 health conditions where fact sheets about the latest research can be found by visiting www.acupuncture.org.uk
