Alison Wood is a fully certified member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC). She studied for 5 years at the renowned International College of Oriental Medicine gaining a BA (Hons) in Acupuncture. Her training included both classical and contemporary acupuncture including Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), 5 Elements and Stems and Branches. All disciplines are integrated within her practice with the principal aim to restore balance and health by harmonising the circulation of Qi. Each treatment is tailored to the individual based on the signs, symptoms and constitution of the patient.
Alison is particularly interested in treating the individual as a whole rather than isolated symptoms reinforcing the Chinese Medicine approach of viewing the physical, emotional and mental aspects of life as being interdependent.
Alison also practices Facial Enhancement Acupuncture which works on improving the elasticity of skin and overall appearance in combination with harmonising health and well-being with the use of both facial and body acupuncture points. Alison is a member and registered practitioner of Cosmetic Acupuncture UK (CAUK) and Facial Enhance.
