I originally worked in various branches of the National Westminster Bank Plc, my last position being at the Insolvency and Debt Recovery Department in Telford, Shropshire. Like many working mothers I was under a considerable amount of stress which eventually led to unpleasant and frightening panic attacks. My next door neighbour suggested I try acupuncture as she had found it very beneficial for her health problems. At the time I was very sceptical and didn’t believe it would work for me but I thought I would give it a try regardless. To my amazement, not only did the panic attacks disappear, never to return, but I felt so much healthier in myself. My energy levels improved, I slept better, my concentration and memory were sharper and my general stress levels reduced drastically. Not only that, my confidence and self esteem grew.
Once I had realised the benefits I was on a mission to undertake a course in acupuncture so that I could help others the way I had been helped and spread the word of its efficacy.
Over the past eleven years or so my business has continued to grow, mostly through word of mouth. I absolutely love my line of work and consider myself very fortunate being able to do a job that I thoroughly enjoy.
