Francesca Howell Acupuncture Courses

Francesca Howell

Acupuncture, Counselling and Hopi Ear Candling

Francesca started studying Acupuncture in 1998. She studied at the Northern College of Acupuncture in York and has a Diploma in Acupuncture and a Certificate in Acupressure Massage. In 2008 Francesca added to this with training and a certificate in Chinese Herbal Formulas. Francesca has a strong interest in the relationship between our emotions and our physical health and the effect life events can have on our physical well-being. This Mind/Body relationship informs a lot of her work and is part of the reason she finds Acupuncture and the philosophy of Chinese Medicine so rewarding.

Francesca also offers Hopi Ear Candling, a very effective and relaxing treatment for clearing sinus problems and blocked ears. She has also completed part of the training in cranial sacral therapy and has found it another very subtle but incredibly effective way of working and intends to continue this training.

Francesca runs courses with John Williamson, teaching acupressure techniques for common health problems and looking at some of the philosophy and theory behind Chinese Medicine.

Francesca does a lot of work with 'The Natural Fertility Centre' which is an integrated therapy centre aimed at helping people with fertility issues and assisted fertility.

Francesca has also completed the British Acupuncture Council Supervision/Mentoring training and has just completed her first year of a Counselling Diploma at Strathclyde University.
