About me...

Sue Harrington PhD, Lic. AC., MBAaC, CPsychol.

 

I discovered acupuncture when I went for my own treatment and I was so amazed by this form of medicine that I decided to train as a practitioner. I studied on a 3-year degree-level course at The Acupuncture Academy in Leamington Spa, graduating with distinction in 2015. I'm also an occupational psychologist, part-time, focusing on health and wellbeing at work.

I am fully trained in Five Element, Facial Cosmetic and Auricular Acupuncture, and my continuing professional development has included acupuncture for menopause, gynaecological problems, pregnancy and supporting IVF.

I have also completed further courses on oncology acupuncture and I volunteer at Together Against Cancer, a cancer charity in Leicester, where I run a weekly multibed acupuncture clinic for people at all stages of cancer, from diagnosis, through treatment and into rehabilitation. 

Acupuncture is often thought about in relation to pain, but I also love applying it to other health issues, such as emotional and mental health, menopause, fibromyalgia, IBS, and to support people going through cancer. 

I am also on the teaching team at The Acupuncture Academy, lecturing on acupuncture for cancer and palliative care to the third year students.

I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council (MBAcC), the professional body for practitioners who have completed an accredited course in acupuncture. The BAcC maintains standards of education, ethics, and safe practice to ensure the health and safety of people accessing acupuncture from its members. I am also a member of the Association of Community and Multi-bed Acupuncture Clinics.

The clinics are licensed by Rugby and Leicester City Councils and I hold full medical and public/products liability insurance cover.
