Heather works at the Oxford Natural Health Centre, Oxford. It is a long established multi-disciplinary Natural Health Centre. It is a short distance from the Oxford city centre on the corner of Iffley Road and Church Cowley Road.
Heather has a passion for helping people solve both the effects and the causes of illness. In her work outside of acupuncture she has trained in meditation and mindfulness for over 20 years and completed courses in meditation philosophy. The emphasis on compassion training allows her to create a safe therapeutic environment for her patients. She has developed particular interest in the areas of fertility; pain; chronic conditions; and emotional health: depression, anxiety and PTSD; supporting people to get their life on track to prevent further illness. Her approach enables the body to truly repair and re-balance.
She studied at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine gaining a licence to practice acupuncture (LicAc), along with a BSc (Hons) degree. Her training also included biomedical sciences, five-element acupuncture, tui na, gua-sha and qi gong. She continues to develop her clinical skills with ongoing postgraduate training and has a particular interest in the areas of emotional health, treating stress, long term and chronic health complaints and acute pain.
She is a fully insured member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) and is bound by strict codes of ethics and practice. She is committed to continuing professional development and is committed to the highest standards of professional care as well as to their professional guidelines and strict clinical hygiene standards.
Heather practices acupuncture using an integrated approach that combines Traditional Chinese Medicine with Five Element Acupuncture. She treats a wide range of conditions to restore and preserve physical and emotional health and wellbeing. She specialises in acupuncture, electro-acupuncture, tui-na, cupping, gua-sha and moxibustion. She treats both men and women and aims to get to the constitutional root of the condition to achieve long term health improvements.
