About Paige

My Credentials

 

 I am a Licensed Acupuncturist in the USA, licensed by the NCCAOM (National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine).  In the UK, unfortunately, there is no regulatory body to award licenses to acupuncturists, but I am a member of The British Acupuncture Council.  

I hold a BSc in Acupuncture from the University of Lincoln which is a three year course of study complete with many clinical hours.  While there I was awarded a research grant to study the effects of tai chi and qigong on Cancer survivorship.  I wrote a paper on the benefits of these practices and have been teaching tai chi and qigong for over 10 years now. 

I completed advanced post-graduate training with a variety of teachers and systems: Dr. Tan's Balance Method, NatureChild Postgraduate certificate (fertility acupuncture), Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture and most recently trained extensively with John Tindle in Microsystems Acupuncture.  

I also have a Level 5 BTEC in Complementary Therapies which includes training and qualifications in Reflexology, Aromatherapy, Counselling, and Massage.

My style of treatment is mainly TCM-based as I was taught by professors from Bejing, but I also have studied Five Element Acupuncture, which I also use in clinic.  I also use elements of all my complementary therapies to create the optimal healing experience and environment for my patients.  I also create bespoke lotions and aromatherapy blends for my private clientele.  

My Experience

I have practiced since 2005 when I opened The White Clinic in Lincoln, UK doing complementary therapies.  Later after I finished my BSc in Acupuncture, I turned to using acupuncture almost exclusively as I felt and still feel it gives the best results for most patients.  

I have taught tai chi and qigong since 2009 in a variety of classes and workshop venues across the world.  The picture above is me in the Sahara desert teaching a class to a holiday group!  

I am a volunteer for World Medicine and have been involved in supporting the Grenfell Towers community in the aftermath of the tragedy there.  

I serve as a board member of ACMAC (Association of Community and Multibed Acupuncture clinics) and am a huge fan and proponent of community acupuncture which I feel is truer to the roots of acupuncture practice. 

How I work

Life throws us endless challenges, with many highs and lows.  We all face illness and discomfort at some point, so best to find intelligent ways to deal calmly and work with our body's natural capacity for healing rather than suppress symptoms with drugs.  No need for a hammer when a small tap will do the job.  I'm here to activate your body's innate healing wisdom. 

 

I particularly love working with women struggling with infertility or hormone related health issues as I know the misery of not being heard or having your concerns dismissed as normal.  So many women suffer needlessly when there are real solutions to many common women's health issues. 

I have many tools to help you get more flow and clarity as you journey onwards, and I also am happy to refer patients for whom my skills are not the best fit.  I specialise in musculoskeletal pain (back, shoulder, knees mainly) and women's health issues (hormonal regulation, infertility and period pain) and facial rejuvenation acupuncture.

I have seen acupuncture help so many people profoundly, I have become an enthusiastic campaigner to help acupuncture integrate more fully into our healthcare options.    

I like to think of my role as a partner in helping you find an intelligent way to your navigate your life's path with more ease and comfort.  

My Background 

I began my career as a technical editor for The Boeing Company in my home town of Seattle where I grew up as the eldest of five children. I was a devout Mormon girl who interrupted my B.A. degree to go on a mission to Ecuador where I learned Spanish, but lost my faith.  

 

I later gained a B.A. in English which led a job as an editor (which bored me to death involving as it did carefully reading spare parts manuals for errors) so that career was mercifully cut short by the birth of my first child and a subsequent move abroad.  Phew. 

 

Two more children quickly followed as well as a series of international moves which kept me busy as a wife and mother tending to the needs of my family.   Once my youngest started school, I returned to study as well.  I had been reading and studying around alternative healthcare for years and so was fortunate to first study for my Complementary Healthcare (BTEC Level 5) and later my BSc in Acupuncture. 

 

I was always trying to find natural remedies for my own health issues and those of my young, growing family.  From homeopathy to shiatsu, I have collected many qualifications and certificates over the years, but my passion continues to be practicing and studying the fascinating and profound arts of traditional Chinese medicine.  

I look forward to meeting you and helping you as you find a path to greater vitality and health.  

 

Warm wishes,
