Specialist in Women's Health in North East London
I am a fully registered and insured acupuncturist with over 20 years experience. I qualified in 2000 with a Bachelor of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine: Acupuncture from the University of Westminster.
The main principle of Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncture is to treat the body as a whole which incorporates the mind, body and spirit.
Whatever condition you are suffering from, I can offer you a free 15 minute no obligation telephone consultation to see how acupuncture can help you.
I am a licensed and fully insured acupuncturist and a member of The British Acupuncture Association.
I first became interested in Chinese Medicine in the 90s when I was looking at several healing systems. It really fascinated me how you could insert fine needles into the body and it could facilitate a healing process.
Many people find acupuncture very relaxing and as it treats the person holistically incorporating mind, body and spirit and hence great at relieving stress.
I've undertaken further postgraduate study with Debra Betts. She specialises in pregnancy and has trained many midwives in New Zealand. She has produced an easy to understand Acupressure Booklet for women in pregnancy and labour.
I also run courses teaching couples these acupressure points in labour. It is an excellent way for the partners to be involved and will give them a chance to help the mum to be deal with the pain and help with the transition from stage one to stage two in labour.
If you are interested in learning these points then please do get in touch.
Further Study in China
Since qualifying at the University of Westminster, to supplement my knowledge I have taken further study in pulse and tongue diagnosis.
I went on a post-graduate study trip to Shanghai, China in 2013. I worked in a district hospital alongside a Dr Huang. It was very interesting to see Traditional Chinese Medicine practised in China as mainstream medicine. The doctors are qualified in western and traditional chinese medicine and it was great to see acupuncture fully integrated into their healthcare system.
Patients would register and then attend a clinic. They would have a consultation, would be sent to the dispensary for their herbs, then they would come back to have cupping, electro-acupuncture and moxibustion if required.
Other patients would turn up with fresh ginger if they required moxa as holes would be put into the ginger and cones of moxa put on the top.
As well as practising acupuncture in a district hospital alongside Dr Huang, I observed consultants treating patients in specialist clinics for gynaecology (women's health); musculoskeletal problems (e.g. neck and back pain and tennis elbow); stroke. I was able to observe a western medical operation where the patient was partly anaesthetised using acupuncture.
What People Say
Sue is amazing and has helped me with various medical conditions using acupuncture and cupping. I highly recommend her. I always feel very relaxed after my treatment.
For those afraid of needles - don't be! Sue makes you feel completely at ease and the process is pain free. I have had a few sessions and each time I left I have felt relaxed and much better in myself.
Lovely treatment today with Sue Bailes, soooo relaxing for a pregnant lady with a very sore back! She does acupuncture and facials using gorgeous Neal's Yard products. Thoroughly recommended!
