About Me - Stacey Beckitt - Acupuncturist
Like so many things in life, I didn’t go looking for a career in acupuncture, but following a period of debilitating ill health, acupuncture found me. I’m so glad it did!
I grew up in Bristol and I fully intended to pursue a career in musical theatre. However, when I was 20, I suffered from major health problems. I struggled to recover and found that mainstream medicine alone wasn’t enough to help me regain my health. This encouraged me to look to alternatives offered by holistic healing, including acupuncture. After I had experienced the gentle, nurturing and whole person approach of acupuncture treatment I became determined to train as a practitioner so I could offer others the benefits that I had received. I feel extremely fortunate to have found my passion in life.
Becoming a Chinese Medicine practitioner has been a privilege and it continues to inform both my practical and philosophical view of life. I studied for four years and graduated from the London College of Traditional Acupuncture in 2008. I obtained BSc (Hons) LicAc and have been running my own successful practice ever since.
Predominantly, I have two key areas of specialisation – women’s health and emotional health although I have worked in many different areas during my career. During my eleven years in practice, I have worked with hundreds (thousands?) of women experiencing challenging gynaecological conditions, such as PMS, endometriosis, PCOS, poor fertility and pregnancy. Furthermore, I provide a supportive and caring environment for people that are experiencing stress and depression and who are facing significant life challenges.
I gain great satisfaction in offering each of my clients a truly bespoke experience. I offer a through, personal, consultation prior to any treatment to ensure that the healing you receive joins the dots between your mental, emotional and physical health. Acupuncture takes into account so many factors – your external environment, nutrition, injuries, thoughts, and emotions, which can all negatively or positively affect you. In essence – acupuncture can help you progress through life with an increased sense of clarity and wellbeing.
One of the many fantastic things about Traditional Chinese Medicine is there is so much to learn. I have continued my personal journey to postgraduate studies and have studied facial acupuncture, also known as facial revitalization acupuncture. This wonderful treatment offers so many positives, not only a glowing complexion, but also the wider holistic benefits of deeper sleep, better energy and increased overall wellbeing.
My practise is also greatly influenced by my studies in nutritional therapy. From a Traditional Chinese Medicine perspective, every food has an energetic quality. Depending upon your condition, certain foods will be more beneficial than others. When appropriate, I can offer advice on how nutrition and diet be beneficial in your own journey to wellness.
I have practiced acupuncture in Harley St, London, Hove and Bristol. Since starting a family we moved to Bath and I love the community, schools and the opportunities the city offers them.
I have written articles for local and national publications on a wide variety of topics including, women’s health, menopause, facial acupuncture, and arthritis.
I am truly passionate about my work and am fully committed to helping my clients regain improved health and wellbeing.
I look forward to working with you.
