Alison originally graduated as a physiotherapist, working at Leeds Teaching Hospital’s Trust. After many years treating neurological patients she moved to The University of Huddersfield as a Senior Physiotherapy Lecturer. During this time, she gained her Master’s Degree in Physiotherapy.
Alison used dry-needling (a western form of acupuncture) in her physio practice and having seen the effects it could have on pain, she decided to study it in more depth. She enrolled on an Honours Degree course at the Northern College of Acupuncture and after the first year knew this was what she wanted to do full time. She left teaching and after graduating with a First Class BSc (Hons) Degree in Acupuncture she set up her practice.
The acupuncture approach Alison uses is suited to treating a wide range of conditions from hayfever, digestive issues to fertility. Alison is a member of the Association of Acupuncture Clinicians, which requires her to maintain and develop her knowledge through Continued Professional Development, ensuring Alison stays up to date with the latest acupuncture developments.
Alison maintains links with the Northern College of Acupuncture where she gets to indulge her love of teaching by being part of the faculty. When not working Alison loves being out in the open, walking or working on the never-ending project that is her garden.
