Rebecca carried out extensive training with the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine gaining a licence to practice acupuncture (LicAc), along with a BSc (Hons) degree. Her training covered 5 element acupuncture, biomedical sciences, traditional Chinese medicine, tui na and qi gong. Rebecca continues to develop her clinical skills with ongoing postgraduate training and has developed particular interest in the areas of gynaecology, promoting male and female fertility, treating stress, emotional wellbeing, long term health complaints and acute pain.
Rebecca is a member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC), the leading self-regulatory body for the practice of traditional acupuncture in the UK, whose voluntary register is approved by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care. Until recently Rebecca was also part of the Acupuncture for Childbirth Team (ACT Oxford), an established group of acupuncturists with an interest in fertility, pregnancy, labour and post-natal care. She has since gone on to establish a weekly low cost Women’s clinic called LifeCycles at Oxford Community Health Hub.
Rebecca is passionate about building therapeutic relationships that maintain professional standards while providing an excellent level of care in an open, friendly environment. Rebecca has a life long interest in mindfulness and compassion, and her work background outside of acupuncture has included successfully mentoring and building therapeutic relationships with disengaged and vulnerable young people and adults. This valuable experience in combination with acupuncture training leads her to generate a safe and nurturing environment whilst people recover their health.
People from all different backgrounds and walks of life come for treatment with Rebecca. She continues to be amazed at how acupuncture can be supportive to people in so many ways and is deeply moved by being able to support people through different stages of life. Her passion for people and nature has also seen her work with many community groups, on organic farms and in workers co-operatives. She welcomes people to get in touch if they are considering whether acupuncture would be a good choice for them and would like some advice.
