I am thrilled to inform you that Cherry Tree Acupuncture is now opening its doors and starting to treat patients from Wednesday 29th July, 2020. The risk from Covid-19 still remains high and reducing the risk remains the priority of all of us. Therefore, face-to-face treatment is only warranted if the need of acupuncture treatment outweighs this potential risk.

In line with guidance from the British Acupuncture Council and Public Health England’s advice, I have implemented strict hygiene procedures and appropriate new protocols to ensure your safety and comfort is fully considered on each appointment you attend.

A detailed letter outlining new procedures at the Marine Clinic is attached here. Please take time to read this fully as it contains many new changes of practice. Shortly before every appointment we will arrange a telephone or video meeting to carry out a health check and to discuss the consultation. If you are familiar with Zoom i will send you meeting details to log onto at a specified time and date. This is to ensure that, although I would prefer to carry out appointments as we did before, my face-to-face contact with you will be minimised for health and safety reasons.

If you would like to call to book an appointment or just have a chat about the new procedures, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Welcome to Cherry Tree Acupuncture

Acupuncture is an ancient, tried-and-tested form of healthcare that has been used in the Far East for thousands of years

My name is Vicky Newman and I am a fully qualified acupuncturist with a First-Class Honours degree (BSc Hons) in Acupuncture, from the renowned International College of Oriental Medicine (ICOM).

My training included learning about the Five Element, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Stems and Branches theories of Chinese medicine, and I tailor individual treatments to each patient’s needs. I also offer Facial Enhancement Acupuncture (FEA)

Joining the ambulance service in 2003, I have progressed in my career to become an Advanced Paramedic Practitioner, giving me an in-depth knowledge of western medical conditions and treatments, which helps me in my practice.

Traditional Chinese Medicine

Acupuncture is one of the safest and longest established forms of healthcare. Being a branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine, it is used to restore the body’s equilibrium in both therapeutic and preventative aims.

Conditions and imbalances

It can be equally effective in treating both chronic and acute conditions. It not only addresses and relieves the symptoms of a disorder but can also be applied to addressing constitutional imbalances that can be contributing to the overall complaint.

Facial Enhancement Acupuncture

Facial acupuncture is a safe, non-surgical method, used to reduce the signs of the ageing process,
