About Me

I fell in love with Acupuncture after some health problems I had forced me to seek out complimentary medicine.

In 2020 I completed and obtained a BSc (Hons) in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine from the country’s leading teaching provider in TCM and Acupuncture - the prestigious Northern College of Acupuncture, in York.


Continually furthering my education & research to be as up to date and informed as possible, completing various CPD courses and I am also fully qualified in Facial Enhancement Acupuncture.

Within life & work, I pride myself on being kind, thoughtful, efficient and being able to deal with most situations we may face working together with good humour and a sense of ease.

Please do have a look at the website for further information and feel free to message me if you have any questions at all.

"Why do they call it 'Alternative Medicine'. when it is the Original Medicine that people have been using for Thousands of Years?"


My Specilisations


Mental Health

Modern life takes its toll on all of us, no matter how 'good' your life is or the quality of your support circle.  We often plod on, feeling not quite right, sweeping it off as feeling a bit low and it'll just pass.  Headaches, body aches & stomach pains come along and we don't link it to our mental state, but very often, that's exactly what it is.

Take the time to come along and get some help.  Together, with the use of Acupuncture & various TCM methods, we can help ease that pressure.  Even if you are currently taking medication for Anxiety/Depression, Acupuncture can compliment this and help you find balance.

Fertility Help

Whether you are just beginning to try for a Baby, have been trying for a while, or are beginning a course of IVF - Acupuncture is proven to assist.

Work with me and we will have a close look at your cycle, looking to repair any any issues that may be affecting your progress.

This could be Amenorrhea (No periods), long cycle and/or issues with either Luteal or Follicular phase, problems with Womb lining, Anovulation (Not Ovulating), Stress - never underestimate stress, hormonal imbalance or any other variety of issues that can impair fertility.

If you are undergoing IVF, it's always a good thing to come for Acupuncture a few months before you begin, to give yourself the best possible chance of success, I will support you through the whole process.


Pain can be inflicted upon us in various guises.  We have acute pain, which can be a pulled a muscle, an injury  or a sudden twinge in the back.  

We have chronic pain, which can be a whole host of different forms such as:


Rheumatoid & Osteo Arthritis

Cancer Recovery


Nerve damage 

Scar Tissue

Back/Neck Pain

Plantar Faciitis

Basically anything that causes you discomfort on an on-going basis. Acupuncture is a proven method of helping to reduce pain and helping you to manage it better.  It is a part of the NICE guidelines for treatment for chronic pain


General Wellbeing

Acupuncture is the perfect remedy for keeping us in good general health and can help with:

Managing stress levels

Supporting good sleep


Whirling Thoughts

Supporting Talking Therapy


Immune System Support

General Aches & Pains

Brain Fog

Digestion Issues

High Blood Pressure

Supporting Diabetes Control

Gut Health

Gut Health is a key feature in TCM & Acupuncture.  Poor gut health is a stepping stone into disease and illness.  Not only this, but it can affect our over all wellbeing - from headaches, poor skin, poor sleep, fatigue, to brain fog and inability to concentrate.

It can also affect our immune systems, so we become more susceptible to illness and disease, along with a slower recovery time.

If you feel that any of these are causing issues in your life, get in touch and we'll work together to help get this resolved.

Facial Enhancement Acupuncture

I have trained personally with Paul Adkins of the world renowned leading cosmetic treatment - Facial Enhance.


Cosmetic Acupuncture is a natural alternative to Botox, Fillers & Facelifts.  It can help to repair damage and prevent further signs of ageing.


It does this as it helps the body to produce collagen ( a protein that is used by the body for skin production - it is what fills in those fine lines and keeps the skin looking plump) and to stimulate the facial muscles.

The treatment includes a facial and facial acupressure massage upon removal of needles

Please contact me if you require further information

Gynaecological Health

From our younger to our older years, we suffer from many complaints as we move through life, simply due to our reproductive system.

It doesn't always have to be this way, we don't need to simply accept something as 'part of life' or as a consequence of ageing.

Acupuncture may help with the following:

 Menopause - including hot flashes


 PMT - Low mood, Sore Breasts, Irritability etc

Heavy & Painful Periods

Irregular Periods

Hormonal Imbalance

Amenorrhea - No Periods

 Coping with Endometriosis


Kelly is a star, had my first appointment in June. Suffering with a trapped nerve in my neck for months before getting in touch with her. Started with the acupuncture then added cupping. I’m now pain free and so grateful to Kelly for her care. She’s a lovely girl with a big personality. Made me feel at ease immediately. Still going to attend her clinic for now but not as often, just to keep my body in perfect condition and pain free. Thanks again x

I've been for a few sessions with Kelly for Acupuncture to help treat my anxiety.  I was really appreciative of the kindness and understanding I was shown during my sessions.  I was unsure about acupuncture but it was has really helped me cope better and control my anxiety.  Thank you so much!

Chris Matthews

I came to Kelly for help with my periods.  I was suffering with them being heavy and painful.  It took some time, but eventually we got my cycle regular and normal flow, without the horrible pain and mood swings I was having.  Aside the periods, I found coming for Acupuncture really helped my migraines and my mood in general, I definitely felt calmer for a few days after treatment.
