Valley Acupuncture

Specific conditions

There are many general health conditions for which acupuncture may be beneficial. If you need any advice as to whether treatment may help your individual condition or state of health please contact me.

Smoking Cessation

If you are keen to stop smoking and have tried other methods, acupuncture may help. Known as 5 point protocol, the ear is needled at five specific points, to induce relaxation, detoxification and hopefully suppress the need to smoke.

Mental Wellbeing

Known for being a very relaxing treatment, acupuncture may be effective for anxiety, recovery from trauma and sleep disorders.

Supporting your health in your 20`s and 30`s

Acupuncture can be an effective therapy in helping to alleviate symptoms associated with a female health condition and in clinical practice, I have seen many cases that have responded well to acupuncture.

Perimenopause to post menopause

This time in a woman's life can be a big transition emotionally and physically. Some symptoms are mild and don’t really affect your day to day functioning that much. Others may be more debilitating leaving you feeling tired, depressed and generally withdrawn. Whatever your age, acupuncture aims to restore your body's natural balance, helping you to feel more in control and function better. This is achieved by assessing all your symptoms to get a detailed picture of what is `your menopause` and therefore individual to you.

I’m a 24 year old female and have suffered with an Overactive Bladder for around 10 years. Over these years I have tried numerous tablets and tests to find out what can be done to help, eventually resulting in having to have an operation every 6 months where Botox is injected into the Bladder (6 lots of treatment). This proved to be successful at first but coming to the end of the last treatment things only got worse. I was starting to lose hope in ever being able to manage this problem. It was effecting my work life, personal life and social life. I have had acupuncture before for a different health issue and luckily a friend at work mentioned to me about having it done to help with my bladder. I researched and found Louise and I am so lucky to have found her and so grateful for what we have achieved so far. I started treatment with her in September and the change is just unbelievable. During this short period of time, has helped so much in comparison to the last 10 years of trial and error with tablets/operations! Our quote is “this little issue with my bladder is not a problem nor is it a bad thing, it’s who I am as a person and it’s just like a wound/scar - it might not go away completely but all we need to do is take care of it and manage it”. I can’t recommend Louise enough! Very professional, but also a great person inside and out and I feel very at ease when talking with her in each session. I`m looking forward to what the future will bring!
I started seeing Louise in 2018 for depression and anxiety after 5 years of failed fertility treatment and a recent miscarriage. I had never experienced anything so debilitating in my life. As a result, I lost confidence, my reason for living and most importantly, I had lost Me. The healing starts when Louise enters the room. She is totally focused on you and carefully listens to your medical history and worries, and is fully engaged in the healing process. She poses thoughtful questions to clarify all facets of the problem at each session. After just one session, I knew I was in the right place. My anxiety began to lesson and slowly life began to take on some normality. I think Louise is truly a professional in her field and I do not know where I would be today without her helping me through this terrible time in my life. Louise has been a blessing to me because she helped me be me again.
I considered acupuncture after recurrent miscarriage and I was extremely anxious and stressed. I felt at ease with Louise immediately and my first session resulted in a huge weight being lifted from me and the anxiety was completely gone. My sessions calmed me and assisted me greatly in dealing with all the stress and pressure I had been under. Louise is a warm, friendly, knowledgeable, professional, an amazing listener and has her clients’ best interests are at the forefront of her practices.
Before acupuncture I was suffering from migraines, hot flushes, mood swings and night sweats. My sleep pattern was quite erratic, making every day functioning quite difficult. After my first treatment with Louise, I stopped experiencing migraines and the hot flushes considerably reduced. The night sweats were more bearable because they were less frequent. My sleeping pattern improved as did the mood swings and I continued to have acupuncture to help me with menopause symptoms.
For women out there, who feel completely out of control during menopause, try acupuncture, you will be amazed how much better you feel because it is powerful yet gentle at the same time. Before treatment, I was angry on a regular basis as well as sad, high, low and tired. With acupuncture I felt more energized and relaxed. Hot flushes were fewer and my emotions felt calmer. Louise is a superb therapist!
I started the menopause and didn’t want HRT. I had night sweats which disturbed my sleep, leaving me irritable the day after. I was suffering from low mood, low energy and a feeling of confusion. I felt old, and wondered where my zest for life had gone!. After the treatment I had no sweats and the morning after my zest for life was back. Louise was caring and the ultimate professional. If you are wondering if acupuncture will work for you, stop wondering and give it a go I cannot recommend this lady enough!
