Acupuncture – Eleanor HendersonEleanor Henderson is a fully qualified, licensed acupuncturist with a BSc Hons degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and is a member of The British Acupuncture Council (BAcC). She began her training at the London College of Traditional Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and completed the degree at the University of East London with a First Class degree. She also holds a Diploma in Clinical Practice of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine from the Nanjing International Acupuncture Training Centre, China after working in two hospitals there.
Alongside her work in acupuncture, Eleanor is also a qualified massage therapist, specialising in sports massage, pregnancy massage and lymphatic drainage massage. She has therefore an extensive knowledge of anatomy, physiology and western medicine and therefore understands how conventional treatments can be complemented by acupuncture.
Eleanor has a general interest in women’s health and treats from pre- conception right through to post-natal care and beyond. Acupuncture has been shown to reduce stress response and anxiety and this in turn may lead to a better hormone balance. Whatever stage you may be at, please don’t hesitate to contact Eleanor to see how acupuncture may be able to help. Whether this is to aid natural fertility, offer support during IUI or IVF, musculo-skeletal pain or nausea during pregnancy, or helping with hypertension, insomnia, breech babies or induction, acupuncture may be able to help.
Although the ideal treatment plan is to start working with acupuncture and lifestyle during the three months before conceiving as this is the optimum time period affecting both egg and sperm quality, whatever stage you are at, Eleanor would be more than happy to discuss how she can help you.
