Here at ATW, we’re passionate about helping people, whether that be people who come to see us regularly or just on a one off basis.
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.
A Massive Success
Something To Look Forward To has achieved massive success, and also massive recognition, as they were the winner of the Special Achievement Award at the 2018 National Lottery Winner Awards.
The founder, Fiona, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007, just like the founder of ATW, Emma, which is why helping others is so important to Emma. This is why Emma and Acupuncture That Works have donated acupuncture sessions, in order to offer holistic therapies to cancer sufferers.
Under the Guy Protocol, details of which can be found here, it was found that regular acupuncture sessions have been found to be effective on patients using Tamoxifen in helping to reduce the side effects of hot flushes.
Acupuncture That Works is proud to be linked with a charity such as Something To Look Forward To, and we hope to be able to support them for many years to come.
Acupuncture That Works are delighted to announce a new clinic in Chester which is run by resident Acupuncturist Emma Mango.
Emma came to Acupuncture after an Acupuncturist helped her by successfully treating her Meniere’s Disease with acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. From this, Emma was inspired to help others who may be looking for alternative remedies for acute and chronic illnesses.
Her path to becoming a qualified Acupuncturist saw Emma graduating in 2012 from the University of Lincoln with a first class BSc Honours degree in Acupuncture. This course is accredited by the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) and the Association of Traditional Chinese Medicine UK (ATCM).
Her training also included courses in Chinese massage, moxibustion, cupping therapy and auricular acupuncture. As part of her degree, Emma worked in the University’s alternative health clinic, treating patients with asthma, psoriasis, sciatica, acne and menopausal symptoms, among others.
Since graduating, Emma has gained 5 years’ experience in the treatment of a variety of conditions.
Emma is particularly interested in mental health but welcomes the chance to treat any disorder. A large part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) focuses on diet and lifestyle and this is integrated into all treatments; each patient is an individual, each treatment personally tailored.
We at Acupuncture That Works are delighted to welcome Emma to the team and look forward to working with her as we grow our network of clinics.
To book a treatment with Emma in our Chester clinic, just call 0800 051 76 88.
Earlier this week Emma was invited to speak on the RedShift Radio Health and Healing programme, with Chrisoula Sirgou.
It was a fascinating interview and covered off a number of subjects including how Emma gave up a successful career in Management and became an Acupuncturist, what people use Acupuncture for and some of the things that you can expect. For example, did you know that Traditional Chinese Acupuncture (TCM) doesn’t hurt, and that the needles used are so fine they are as thin as a strand of hair?
If you would like to hear what Chrisoula and Emma talked about then the link to the show recording is here. It’s well worth a listen!
Acupuncture That Works has been very busy recently so with that in mind we are very pleased to announce a new staff member to help cope with demand.
We are delighted to welcome on board Clare Cowell who is an acupuncturist and qualified physiotherapist. Clare has lived and around Northwich all her life and has a BSc Honours in Physiotherapy, as well as an MSc in Neuromusculoskeletal Healthcare. You can read Clare’s full profile here.
Clare will be a great addition to the team here and she has arrived after an extensive search. The key thing was that we needed to make sure that the person who joined us would not only be someone who would uphold and maintain the high standards we have set, but also be a great team member.
With Clare’s background we can now offer Physiotherapy as well as acupuncture, something some of our patients have been asking about for a while now.
If you would like to book in with Clare then give us a call on 0800 051 76 88 or 07880 94 88 77
Acupuncture That Works Clinics will be closed from Thursday 22nd August and will reopen Wednesday 4th September. If you wish to make an appointment please either leave us a message or email us from our contact page. On our return we will call you. Hope you all have a great August Summer Holidays.
