I’m Katy Bradshaw. I’m a highly regarded acupuncturist with over ten years of clinical experience. I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council and a graduate of the renowned College of Integrated Chinese Medicine.
I became an acupuncturist after receiving treatment myself; firstly as a child and then later in life. The treatment I received had a hugely positive impact on my life. As a result of my personal and professional experience I truly believe acupuncture can transform a person’s health – both physically and mentally.
I already had a degree in Social Anthropology from Sussex University so took a great interest in people. After several years working in the public sector I began looking for a way to make a real change to people’s lives and decided to train as an acupuncturist.
Since then I have also undertaken further study in fertility and specialised pain relief techniques. I am also a member of ACT – the Brighton Acupuncture Childbirth Team.
As a result of my training I draw on both Traditional Chinese Medicine and Five Elements theory and use a combination of styles and techniques. These include full body acupuncture, moxibustion, cupping and auricular acupuncture.
My integrated approach means that I can treat a range of emotional and physical complaints and any underlying constitutional imbalance patients may have. I strongly believe that our emotional well-being plays an important role in our physical health and vice versa.
I also blend my treatments with ongoing lifestyle and dietary advice which enhances the benefits.
