Sandra Bird BSc (Hons)

I studied Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Acupuncture at the University of Lincoln, graduating with a BSc (Hons). I felt compelled to study TCM having experienced a dramatic improvement in my own health with acupuncture treatment which resulted in avoiding the need for major surgery.  I was so impressed that I wanted to ‘Pay it Forward’ and signed up for the course! If you like to listen to long stories, ask me about that.

I started my working life in the research oriented world of Libraries and Information and view my acupuncture practice as the perfect balance of paying attention to the smallest detail with the freedom to go with the intuitive flow.

I love helping people resolve their health issues with acupuncture, but I’m also keen to use Traditional Chinese Medicine to help them preserve their health so as to avoid problems developing in the first place. I run regular workshops, teaching acupressure and other TCM techniques that can be easily used at home or work everyday to boost well-being and maintain a healthy life balance.

Having three (now all in their 20’s) children, I find nothing more rewarding than helping clients ‘grow’ their own families, using my skills to help with fertility issues, and providing support alongside IVF treatments. I am currently collaborating with my former clinical supervisor and leading fertility acupuncture specialist Lianne Aquilina, to further refine my skills in this area and I am extremely happy to be an Aquilia Affiliate Fertility Practitioner.

Being a ‘woman of a certain age’ and a huge fan of natural beauty, I also enjoy the wonders of facial enhancement treatments and their confidence boosting results! Beauty is so much more than skin deep and ‘cosmetic’ acupuncture treats the appearance from within, whilst rebalancing the physical and emotional.

I have a calming nature and use what I call comfortable needling. I like nothing better (well, maybe drinking tea) than to share the benefits of acupuncture and absolutely love that it can do so much. So if you’d like to know more about how acupuncture can help you call me and I’ll put the kettle on.

 

The Way of An–Shen Acupuncture

Pin

I am rather particular about what I find acceptable when I choose to invest my money in a service or a product. Whatever I am exchanging my cash for has to fulfill some pretty tough criteria and satisfy my senses: it has to feel right, look right, taste right, smell right, sound right. In other words, it just has to be right! And so it is too when I am the provider of the product or service. I want what I provide to be just right and will do all I can to make it so. These are my guiding principles, the key to my practice, and the Way of An–Shen Acupuncture.

 One Couch, One Client

Pin

There are as many different ways to practise acupuncture as there are practitioners and patients. The way of An–Shen Acupuncture is very much about working with one patient at a time. That way you can rest assured that you will be 100% of the practitioner’s focus for 100% of the time that you are in the treatment room. There will be no multitasking, no overlap of appointments, no rushing from one room to another, or from one client to another, and no interruption to your consultation. Your practitioner’s presence will be mindful, rooted, with clear intention, and completely focused on You.  

 Both Hands

Pin

I have read that every child in China is taught this:

“When offering a bowl of rice,
make offering with both hands.
When giving a gift,
give it with both hands.
When receiving a bowl of rice,
receive it with both hands.
When receiving a gift,
receive it with both hands.
When greeting someone,
clasp both your hands in greeting.”
 

Both Hands

Using both hands equally shows that we are respectful and giving our full attention. Every relationship is a partnership built on mutual respect. This is how I like to build relationships with patients, suppliers, and professional colleagues. As a client of An–Shen Acupuncture, your individual treatment plan will be developed with you, not for you, and it will require wholehearted, equal commitment from both you and your practitioner.

 Quality & Comfort

Pin

Just as the finest quality ingredients combine to make a delicious meal, so the precise and balanced combination of discrete yet interdependent elements make for the best experience, and outcomes, of an acupuncture treatment. The finest quality needles combined with comfortable needling technique. A well padded couch with fresh, soft, brushed cotton sheets. A “non-clinical”, relaxed, and safe environment. A warm, friendly welcome with a cup of An–Shen tea.

The Best Suppliers

Pin

I make no apology for being fussy about the quality of my supplies. After all, the tools and equipment I use are integral to my practice. It makes sense, therefore, that everything I use must come from the most appropriate source. I love to support businesses that are geographically close and I often do. However, it is not always possible to obtain the items that I need locally. My choice of supplier is not determined by where they are located, nor by the price they charge, but by the quality of the item(s) that they supply.

Health & Happiness

Pin

However skilled a practitioner may be, if they’re not happy in their work, or in a good state of health, it will be reflected in their practice. It is a priority that the practitioner is as careful with their own health and happiness as they are with that of their patients. To this end, I have regular health preservation acupuncture treatments with a colleague to keep me at my best and am always seeking ways to maintain balance in all things.
