Bubbling Spring Acupuncture Clinic is a modern, well established clinic. Our main clinic is in Stanground, Peterborough just off the A1139 ring road, with appointments at Oundle Osteopaths on Saturday mornings. We are open by appointment only and offer an online appointment booking facility.
Helen first encountered Acupuncture and Shiatsu through the practice of Taijiquan and Qigong. Her practice of these internal martial arts not only helped her with her chronic back pain, but also created an understanding of the foundations of Chinese Medicine. After working in respiratory product development for 6 years, Helen decided to re-train and over several years obtained professional diplomas in Zen Shiatsu and Traditional Chinese Medical (TCM) Acupuncture. Helen followed up her UK training with further training at a leading TCM hospital in Hangzhou, China. Helen is also qualified to use Sports Massage, Cupping Therapy and Electro-Acupuncture and regularly incorporates these into her treatments if appropriate.
Helen has full membership with the Acupuncture Association and the British Acupuncture Federation. She is a committed practitioner who is always developing herself professionally so that she can provide the best possible care for her patients.
Helen is happy to treat any condition for which Acupuncture has demonstrable benefit including:
– Stress, insomnia, and mood regulation
– Menopausal syndrome, painful or irregular periods
– Musculoskeletal pain e.g. neck, shoulder, back, knee, elbow pain
Acupuncture is now also recommended by NICE for the management of many chronic primary pain conditions, including:
– Migraines and other headache disorders
– Fibromyalgia, endometriosis, irritable bowel syndrome
– Musculoskeletal pain including low back pain and sciatica, neuropathic pain and arthritis
Helen is experienced at helping patients manage these painful conditions. Many of her patients seek her help with a number of issues that are not responding well to medication alone.
Continuous Professional Development
The name of the clinic comes from the Chinese acupuncture point Yong Quan, which translates as bubbling spring or gushing spring. This is the first acupuncture point on the kidney channel in our bodies, located on the sole of the foot. The kidneys are the most important organ in Chinese medicine. If you have abundant kidney Qi, you are strong physically and sound mentally and emotionally.
Here at Bubbling Spring we work with you to revive, restore and rebalance so that you can return to a state of adundant wellbeing.
