Debbie is a qualified and experience acupuncturist and member of the British Acupuncture Council. Over the last decade she has trained in and gained internationally recognised qualifications in complementary therapies. She has also gained a Bachelor of Science degree in Acupuncture. Since graduating Debbie has operated from clinics in Leeds city centre as well as a number of multi bed clinics.
Since January 2014 Debbie has been working with alongside Barnsley NHS Foundation Trust at The Well Complementary Therapy Centre where she provides Acupuncture as a service for cancer patients both men and women from Barnsley who are being treated for cancer, no matter where they are being treated. Her own battles with Follicular Lymphoma, which she was diagnosed with in 2012, have provided a unique perspective on the care of patients within a clinical setting. In 2018 Debbie undertook training with Macmillan cancer support, to enable her to provide support via the Macmillan Hope course. Hope stands for “helping overcome problems effectively”, something Debbie believes in a great deal.
The aim of Debbie Smith Acupuncture is to offer a friendly & confidential acupuncture service to people of all ages. As a qualified acupuncturist she is dedicated to improving the quality of your life.
“Continuous professional development is of great importance to my practice as it means that I can keep fully up to date with research and development with Acupuncture. In the last few years I have attended training and development workshops on fertility issues such as PCOS & Endometriosis by Jani White of Nature Child, and an IVF Workshop with Zita West affiliated practitioners. As well as a workshops on the treatment of migraine with acupuncture and Auriculotherapy Ear Acupuncture with Jim Chalmers”. Since 2017 when I was also diagnosed with Fibromyalgia I have undertaken various research activities and joined a number of Fibromyalgia groups to further understand what this debilitating condition is and how acupuncture may help.
All treatments are delivered in a caring and empathetic way and are focused entirely on the well being of you as an individual.
