Nicola Fielding BSc (Hons) Lic Ac, MBAcC, ITEC,Dip (AIT).
Nicola discovered the many benefits of acupuncture when she began having treatment herself some years ago. Her GP was unable to offer solutions for some uncomfortable symptoms she had at the time and so she turned to acupuncture for help. She was so enthused by treatment, that she decided to train as an acupuncturist herself. She now provides treatment to others in the Thorpe Bay/Southend/Leigh area.
Nicola's background is in the NHS, where she worked as a medical secretary and later as a complaint's coordinator for many years. She has great respect for the work of the medical profession but felt that, all too often, there were gaps where conventional medicine could not help. This was another deciding factor in Nicola's choice to train as an acupuncturist.
For three and a half years, Nicola trained on a degree course at The College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading. She is a member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) which means that she is fully insured and is obliged to work to the strict standards laid down by BAcC and to undertake Continuous Professional Development.
Nicola is also a qualified massage therapist, and may combine acupuncture with massage. She offers a range of massage treatments and food intolerance testing.
Nicola cares very much about helping people to feel better. Please call her for a chat if you would like to know more about acupuncture, massage or other therapies.
