March 3-10 Is Acupuncture Awareness Week in the UK. Another health week? I hear you ask… The aim is to get people talking acupuncture – what it does, how to find a reputable practitioner, etc, etc.

Why do I get involved? Because I love what I do!  There is no better job satisfaction than seeing people happier and healthier, so it’s a great opportunity to let as many people in East Sussex know that I exist, where I practice from (a fabulous treatment room in the countryside between Lewes and Eastbourne) and what acupuncture can do for them.  Though I’d love to tell you more, the ASA restrict us to “back ache, nausea, and tension headache”.  Luckily, if you come along to my clinic Open Day on 7 March 10-12pm, you’ll be able to listen to me talk, when I’ll be able to tell you more about how acupuncture can help your health. I’m also giving free 15 minute consultations on the day, from 12.30 – 3pm, which gives you an ideal chance to have a private chat and to find out if acupuncture could help you to better health.

What else will I be up to that week? All the usual social media stuff – Blogging, Facebooking, Tweeting and the like. Oh, and baking cakes for the open day. when I’m not treating my usual patients.

I’ll also be running a competition whereby 4 lucky people will get a session of acupuncture absolutely free!  So whether you’ve never tried it and would like to – or have used it in the past and wouldn’t mind a top up, all you have to do is (a) turn up at the Open Day and put your name in the drawer or (b) post a comment on my Facebook page about acupuncture during the week.

I really hope that Acupuncture Awareness Week brings acupuncture to the forefront of peoples minds when they think of health.  If you’d like to know more, take a look at my website, or get in touch directly – my contact details are at

In the meantime – back to the recipe books….
