We’re thrilled to announce that, although it seems like only yesterday we set up our first Northwich clinic, Acupuncture That Works is in fact eight years old!
Back in November 2011, ATW opened its doors following Emma Guy’s retraining as a licensed Acupuncturist. She had suffered from Ulcerative Colitis and had found Acupuncture to be of great benefit. Consequently, Emma switched career paths so that she could bring the same relief to as many people as possible through Acupuncture.
Fast forward eight years and ATW boasts a staff of seven and has expanded far beyond the realm of Acupuncture. Our holistic therapies now include reflexology and reiki, physiotherapy, massage, tuina and Hopi ear candling.
Most people wouldn’t think of Acupuncture in terms of Eastern and Western, but they are in fact very different. Acupuncture is thousands of years old and derives from Traditional Chinese Medicine which is what is also referred to as ‘Eastern’ Acupuncture. It has only been in the last 50 years that Acupuncture has become more widely recognised as a treatment for a variety of ailments in the West. Here we will be exploring the distinct differences between Eastern and Western Acupuncture to help you understand their uses, benefits and how they work.
Acupuncture is a deeply historic practice and one that has been used for centuries to manage symptoms of a variety of pains and illnesses of both body and mind.
While acupuncture’s techniques are commonly used by those looking to relieve pain and it’s often employed to provide a remedy or relief for joints, headaches and a wide range of other ailments, the practice can also be effective when it comes to less tangible problems, such as depression.
This less well-known use of acupuncture can have startling effects on the mind. If you are suffering from depression, Acupuncture That Works recommends trying a course of acupuncture to discover the benefits it can exert on your state of being.

We have had close links with an organisation called Something To Look Forward To for many years now, who are a charity who have been affected by cancer and so decided to try to help others. STLFT helps by providing gifts and experiences to to families and cancer patients which have been donated by gifts and businesses.
They succeeded, and since 2015, Something to Look Forward To has been a registered charity which has helped to improve the lives of thousands of families of cancer patients across the UK.

ATW would like to welcome Nadine Tallis, our new Acupuncturist and Chinese Medicine Practioner, specialising in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Nadine has a 1st Class Honours BSc Degree in Acupuncture with over 400 hours in clinic. Nadine comes to us from The Cheshire Tao.
Additionally, Nadine has a Level 3 Diploma in Complementary Therapies, including Aromatherapy, Reflexology, and Massage & Facial Massage, as well as being a Reiki Practioner and also being an accredited member of the FHT.
Nadine comes from a strong marketing and legal background, but she left her career in 2013 in order to care for her mother who had unfortunately just received a lung cancer diagnosis.
Due to this, Nadine decided to retrain in Acupuncture so as to be able to help other people who are suffering with the symptoms of cancer.
Nadine used a multi-therapeutic approach to help her clients. She combines the seven principles and the five elements, microsystems, Korean, electric acupuncture and moxibustion.
Nadine specialises in chronic pain and illness management, depression, anxiety and mental wellbeing, stress management and issues with addiction.
