Acupuncturist – Gill Carpenter
After training as a nurse at St. Georges hospital in London and later as a midwife at St. Richards hospital in Chichester, where I worked for 10 years’. To train as an acupuncturist, I studied at the British College of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine to gain a Licentiate in Acupuncture. I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC).
My interest in acupuncture is rooted in my experiences whilst travelling in Asia and the Far East. After completing my training, I set about bridging the gap between western and eastern medicine in order to help people struggling to find solutions to their health issues.
I have always striven to stay up-to date either by study or research. In 2019 I gained a Diploma in Gynaecology, Fertility and Obstetrics from the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine.
With over 25 years of experience working in clinics in both Emsworth and Worthing, I am able to help with problems such as back pain, osteoarthritis, anxiety and migraine.
Drawing on my background as a midwife I offer support for women in pregnancy and specialise in treating pregnancy related conditions, fertility issues, menstrual and menopausal problems and offers IVF support.
I also practice Tui Na, a form of Chinese massage that focuses on unblocking areas of tension to aid the body’s natural healing ability.
