I am an acupuncturist practicing Classical Five Element Acupuncture. My interest in acupuncture began after I received treatment from a Five Element practitioner to support my recovery from a surgery to treat endometriosis. I had never had any alternative therapies, but I turned to acupuncture seeking a solution that western medicine couldn't offer. The impact on my overall health and well-being was so dramatic that I continued to have regular treatment and now would never go back to a life without acupuncture!
I turned to acupuncture again when I discovered that I would need help to get pregnant and found it really supported me during IVF treatment. It gave me the resilience to cope with the emotional strain of infertility as well as offering physical benefits to aid conception.
My experience as a patient inspired me to learn about the practice and study to become a Five-Element practitioner myself. I was trained by the respected acupuncture Master and fertility expert, Gerad Kite - founder of the Kite Clinic and was awarded my Licentiate in Acupuncture (Lic.Ac) by the London Institute of Five Element Acupuncture (LIFEA). After qualifying I worked alongside Gerad as one of the team of Kite Clinic practitioners on Harley Street before opening my own practice in Hertfordshire.
I have a particular interest in women's health and I am passionate about helping others facing infertility. I have seen first hand that acupuncture can work alongside western medicine for conditions such as PCOS, endometriosis and as a support for the physical and emotional strain of IVF.
I currently practice Five-Element acupuncture in Hertfordshire, including in my wonderful home town of Hitchin.
I am proud to be a member of AFEA and the CThA. I am fully insured.

"I cannot recommend Emma highly enough. She creates a very relaxed atmosphere and at every session I feel completely at ease. She’s also very informative and it’s been fascinating to learn about the reasons for each treatment. Emma - you have been great and really helped me. Thank you!’
"After my most recent treatment with Emma I felt like I had a warm inner glow. There is something wonderful about having the focus and care of somebody for an hour - add in the magic of the needles and it is a strong recipe for profound change. I cannot recommend Emma more highly.”
