Hi, I’m Rachel, the owner of Faringdon Acupuncture. I have almost of decade of experience studying and practicing as a therapist. I have the right pieces of paper to make you feel safe and secure with my training, experience and insurance.
I adore my practice. I love to see people change. I’d love to hear your story. I am dedicated to my practice and serving my clients to reach their goals.
I have two distinct areas of expertise: women’s health and pain relief.
I specialise in treating women and I adore this work. I help women through their fertility journey, offer support during pregnancy, birth and in the months after childbirth.
It is working with women through these emotional and life changing times that brings depth to my practice. I work with women at other stages of life. I help girls get comfortable with their periods and wise women feel at ease with menopause.
The other area of my practice is offering pain relief for musculoskeletal problems. This aspect of my practice brings instant gratification when a client comes into my clinic in a lot of pain and walks out a different person.
Following my full time three-year acupuncture degree course, I have focussed postgraduate study on fertility, pregnancy and pain relief. I have a solid foundation of both western and chinese medical knowledge. I bring compassion, empathy and understanding to my work. I have helped hundreds of people improve their health and reach their goals.
I believe that complimentary health is just that. It works really well in conjunction with western medicine. Western medicine is incredible at testing and scanning to diagnose a condition. Sometimes medication is appropriate, and at others complimentary medicine can be more effective. For example, using moxa to turn a breech baby.
There are plenty of changes we can make to our lifestyle to improve health and wellbeing. I teach my clients how to do this to empower them to take control and give them the tools they need to have a healthy life and feel fantastic.
