I am so pleased to be part of the fantastic Breast Cancer Haven team, where I will be joining other therapists and bringing Traditional Acupuncture to Maggie’s in Cheltenham.


Maggie’s is a  drop-in centre, one of 20 centres across the United Kingdom and abroad. Its aim is to help anyone who has been affected by cancer. There is free practical, emotional and social support which is provided by trained staff  to people with any type of cancer, and their families. It is such a fantastic centre; warm and welcoming to everyone walking through its doors. Furthermore, there is a packed schedule of events, classes and workshops which includes vaious arts, tai chi and expressive writing to name a few.

How can acupuncture help?

There is a growing body of research that supports the use of acupuncture to help people through their conventional cancer treatment. Acupuncture can be used alongside conventional treatment and can help to ease the side effects such as:

  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • fatigue
  • insomnia
  • hot flushes
  • dry mouth
  • pain
  • anxiety

Cancer treatment is developing and improving all of the time and can be extremely effective. But sometimes treatment overlooks the human being. Through acupuncture I look at you as a whole person, and take into account your unique experience and support you through this.
