Lucinda graduated from the University of Westminster with a BSc (Hons) in Traditional Chinese Medicine: Acupuncture in 2008. After graduating she went to further her studies at Nanjing’s University of Chinese Medicine in China. Here she worked in a variety of hospitals, and was fortunate enough to observe and assist Doctor Tao Kun, a greatly respected and renowned acupuncturist throughout China.
Returning from China, Lucinda lived in London and practiced her acupuncuture in private holistic clinics as well as working for the NHS at Hoxton Health Group at St.Leonards hospital and the NHS Gateway Clinic. She also ran an award winning multi-bed clinic, London Community Acupuncture Project, that was set up with a colleague to make acupuncture affordable for all.
Since moving to Sheffield in 2012, Lucinda has continued to practice
acupuncture privately whilst
Qualified in Swedish, Thai and Tuina massage, Lucinda likes to incorporate massage into her treatments as a method of physical and mental relaxation prior to the acupuncture. She will also use cupping, moxabustion and electro-acupuncture if appropriate for the patient’s condition.
Lucinda not only focuses on diagnosing and treating the patient’s presenting problem, but also likes to look closely at diet, lifestyle and emotional well-being to ensure her treatment and advice is aimed at restoring the body’s equilibrium and promoting self-healing.
Acupuncture is a form of ancient Chinese medicine that has been used and developed for over 3000 years. It is now widely used throughout the world to treat all types of health conditions ranging from fertility to anxiety, asthma to insomnia. It is also now recognised by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) as a form of treatment for chronic lower back pain, headaches and migraines.
Acupuncture treatment involves the insertion of extremely fine needles into specific points all over the body. This gentle, safe and effective form of treatment encourages the body to self heal and works on its own or alongside western medicine.
I qualified as an acupuncturist in 2008 after completing a BSc in Traditional Chinese Medicine: Acupuncture. Since then I have worked in hospitals in China, for the NHS and privately in London and Sheffield, specialising in Paediatric and Oncology acupuncture.
I provide safe, effective holistic acupuncture for all. I like to focus each treatment on improving the overall health of my patients, rather than just the presenting condition, offering unique treatments tailored to the individual.
