Sarah Crockford BSc (Hons) Acu. MBAcC 

For most of her life, Sarah has had a keen interest in helping others, from a young age, she was a member of the Red Cross and attended many events as a first aider and ambulance person, before moving in to training others in first aid at work. She runs a business providing festival welfare services with her partner.

Sarah gained a diploma in Shiatsu which sparked a keen interest in Chinese Medicine; the natural progression from this was to acupuncture and she graduated from the Northern College of Acupuncture, with a First Class Honours Degree. She has undertaken additional training in Acupuncture for Muscular Skeletal issues and is a Level 2 Dr Tan Balance Technique Practitioner (The balance method is used primarily to treat pain, this method tends to have faster and more sustained results). 

Chris Crockford BSc (Hons) Acu. MBAcC 

Chris has worked on humanitarian and community action projects for the past 30 years. Originally training as a chiropodist, he also worked for the Red Cross providing emergency care at events as an ambulance person and as First Aid at Work trainer. He developed the idea of a new kind of welfare service to help people at festivals and has successfully led a business with Sarah to deliver care at over one hundred festivals. Fortunately, Chris is passionate about music, so work and pleasure was happily combined!   

Having spent many years developing teams, and training others, Chris developed an interest in the holistic nature of Chinese Medicine, healing in a non-emergency context. He trained at the prestigious Northern College of Acupuncture, qualifying with a First-Class Honours Degree. His post graduate training has focused on the treatment of Muscular Skeletal issues with Whitfield Reeves and in developing research into lifestyle medicine. Chris wrote his dissertation on the use of acupuncture to aid weight loss. 

Our Ethos

We aim to the make the benefits of acupuncture affordable to as many people as possible. 

In the UK we have the wonderful NHS which means most people are unaccustomed to paying for care.

We have a multi-bed clinic model, this is the system used in China whereby several patients are treated at the same time. This allows us to keep our prices low whilst still maintaining high professional standards. 

All treatments are specifically tailored to the individual patient, it is important to us that everyone has a positive experience.
