One of our acupuncturists, Maureen McCann.

This year our nutritionist, Julie Deeks, is dedicating herself to her health – by vowing to visit each of her fellow practitioners at the Forge! She previously discussed massage treatment with Nicky McCleanosteopathy with Phil McNulty and physiotherapy with David Silver.

Today she describes her treatment with Maureen McCann, one of our acupuncturists. Maureen specialises in Five Element Acupuncture and has been treating for over ten years. Maureen trained as an acupuncturist after experiencing the benefits of acupuncture for herself. She now specialises in infertility, but has treated everything from back pain to anxiety.

Julie says…

“I had a little of bit of acupuncture a few years ago, however Maureen’s approach is quite different. She uses the Chinese Five elements, and doesn’t leave the needles in the same place for long periods of time.

Maureen has lots of experience and this certainly shows during the treatment,;she will explain everything she is doing and you definitely feel like you are in good hands!

I always feel quite amazing after a treatment with Maureen, and I have had quite a few and will have more too in the future.

Maureen often works on my spleen and digestive areas, where I have a weakness, and she sometimes gives my immune system a boost if she feels I need it. If I am feeling stressed, she helps with that too, using the acupuncture meridians, unblocking energy to allow it flow better. However acupuncture works on the body, it makes a difference to me. I recommend you give it a go, Maureen has lots of empathy and will make you feel at ease throughout.”

If you would like to have a treatment with Maureen, initial consultations are 90 minutes. She is available on Mondays and Thursdays and you can call, email or book online. To see Julie, please give us a call so we can let you know when she’s available.
