Helen Riddington

Acupuncturist, BSc Hons Acupuncture, LicAc, MBAcC, BWY Dip

Helen is often asked how she came to be an acupuncturist.  There are probably two main reasons: she is also a Yoga teacher and both acupuncture and yoga have their basis in energy movement.  She felt that she wanted to go further to be able to assist people more with this and decided that acupuncture was the most thorough system of energy medicine with research to back it up.  The second reason is that her Mum swore by it, so the theory and practice were proven!

A Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Acupuncturist has to complete at least a three year degree in Acupuncture – she qualified in 2009 and have been practising ever since.  She is a member of and insured by the British Acupuncture Council, the largest professional body of acupuncturists in the UK.

She has also spent time in Harbin, China attached to two different hospitals where she observed the work of the Chinese acupuncture doctors there.  Besides keeping her skills and knowledge up to date throughout her career, she has found that her patients are often the best source of learning and reinforcement of the effectiveness of acupuncture.

Having recently moved to Suffolk, she also has a clinic in Essex, and previously provided acupuncture cover at a local fertility clinic there.  Whilst she regularly treats a range of conditions, her specialisms tend to be fertility, women’s health and emotional health generally.

She is also a menopause yoga teacher, life coach and has a background in people skills development.  As a yoga teacher, she has also been able to support treatment with appropriate exercises/practices.

In her spare time, she enjoys walking, cycling and spending time in nature.  She also loves to travel, read and sing in no particular order!

She looks forward to sharing acupuncture with you soon.
