Self-employed acupuncturist at NIHP Durham
Hi! I’m Amanda and my business is called ‘Gentle Touch Healing & Acupuncture’.
Previous to becoming an acupuncturist, I was a paediatric nurse of almost 10 years based predominantly at the Royal Victoria Infirmary. Although I loved this role, there were a number of personal circumstances that lead me to a change in direction, and in 2016 I graduated from the Northern College of Acupuncture with my degree!
My work and life experience, along with my varied education, has equipped me with a broad spectrum of skills and understanding from both western and eastern practices. This allows me to provide knowledgeable, individualised, holistic care.
I consider myself an acupuncturist who treats a wide variety of mental, emotional and physical conditions, but do have a particular interest in the mind; those suffering from stress, anxiety, low mood and depression.
My Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) acupuncture degree has equipped me with additional skills and techniques such as bodywork/ acupressure massage, Chinese cupping therapy, Moxibustion and infrared heat therapy. In addition to these, I have also undertaken studies in Reiki, Indian Head Massage and Crystal Healing.
These therapies can be booked as individual treatments but also as a Combination Treatment option whereby I regularly combine one or two of such therapies (often alongside acupuncture) as the therapies complement one another, often enhancing the treatment outcome. Therapies would be discussed prior to booking or during the consultation process.
Gentle Touch Healing & Acupuncture’s ethos is that each individual is unique, so your session is designed entirely around you to ensure a truly holistic treatment to aid healing, relaxation, and re-balance of the body and mind.
