Cara Beckinsale

I  am a fully qualified traditional acupuncturist having completed three years of degree level study, at The Acupuncture Academy. I was awarded a Professional Licentiate in Acupuncture gaining a distinction and commendation for my clinical work.

I am fully trained in FEA ( Facial Enhancement Acupuncture).I am both a member of the British Acupuncture Council and the Professional Standards Authority and have full medical malpractice and public/products liability insurance cover. My training was extensive and covered all aspects of Chinese medical and acupuncture theory with the focus on Five Element Theory. We also studied units on Western bio -medicine.

A symptom, (whether that is: headache, skin condition, infertility, anxiety, exhaustion, back pain, frozen shoulder, insomnia etc) is the body trying to communicate that it is out of balance and needs some assistance in functioning at its best.

Five Element theory treats the cause of the disease, which allows your body to restore an optimum level of health naturally. We tailor treatment to an individual based on the theory of nature. By selecting points relevant to their imbalance , the body’s natural ability to heal is activated. Often patients resolve their original symptoms and receive the benefit of being able to perform at higher levels e.g. improved energy, better sleep, elevated mood or in the case of chronic disease the ability to maintain the condition with more ease.

The beauty of Five Element is that I work with people as individuals, everyone’s system and personal experience are unique and I factor this into the diagnosis and treatment. In my experience this holistic approach can provide some excellent results. It is genuinely rewarding to work with patients closely and see them overcome symptoms and return to an enhanced quality of life.
