Acupuncture & Chinese Massage

Anneli Engberg


My name is Anneli Engberg and I am a Traditional Acupuncturist & Chinese Massage Therapist who has been in private practice for over thirty years. I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council & adhere to its strict Codes of Practice and Ethics.

Mostly I treat with a combination of Acupuncture & Chinese Massage, but for those who prefer I will do one or the other. The principles of both are the same; to simulate the body's own healing responses & restore its natural balance as far as it is possible. 

My particular interests lie in working together with a client and as well as giving treatment, exploring what can be done to further help with the recovey. This may involve looking at dietary habits, posture, stretching exercises & how to reduce stress (for example). It all depends what is possible & practical for each individual.

Each person is unique, even if the symptoms are similar. The 'integrated' approach to acupuncture (TCM & Five Element) is done from a belief that an acupuncture practitioner is best equipped to treat someone if they understand both the illness & the nature of the person that is suffering the illness. 


Chinese Medicine has its own methods of diagnosis and treatment through balancing, cleansing and strengthening the body's vital energy systems. As our health starts improving our symptoms reduce in intensity. Acupuncture is suitable for all ages and can be used alongside conventional medicine.

Therapeutic Counselling


Are you struggling at the moment and finding that you are going through a tough time? Are you hoping to work through some challenging issues and feelings to allow yourself to process and heal?

I’m Helen Yates and I’m a therapeutic Counsellor. I can offer you a safe, confidential, non-judgemental space to explore what’s troubling you. To feel heard and understood can feel empowering and give inner strength and resilience. Healing past traumas can lead to a more positive way of living with further understanding of yourself and your experiences. Opening yourself up to more meaningful experiences. Counselling can help to develop a more positive self-worth and self-confidence as well as having compassion to one self and understanding and experiencing more of who you are and how you would like to live your life to experience inner peace and fulfilment. To help to break down issues and situations which have been stressful and over whelming, allowing
difficulties to feel more manageable and offering clarity.

I have experience working with a range of presenting issues e.g., eating disorders, childhood trauma, anxiety and depression, addictions, attachment, bereavement, relationship difficulties, sexual abuse, body image issues, body dysmorphia, gender dysphoria, LGBTQ+ issues, neuro diversity, miscarriage, sexual issues, chronic illness and many more.

I offer short term and long term work. Short term work may involve a decision that needs to be made or exploring a distressing feeling or a repetitive thought or pattern. Longer term work may involve looking at a past trauma or childhood experiences, attachments or relationships and interactions. You may use the space how you wish to, leading the way, and I will be alongside you, supporting you along the way to find your own answers and come to your own solutions, conclusions and understandings.

As a fully qualified and insured homeopath, I am passionate about helping people be as healthy as they can be. Homeopathy is a system of medicine that helps the body heal itself. Through consultations we will explore how you are feeling and devise an individualised treatment plan to help you regain control for your health. Common reasons to seek homeopathic treatment include:

Fatigue                  Stress                     Anxiety                       Allergies                  Digestive issues                                       

       Post surgery concerns         Chest complaints and asthma         Eczema and skin complaints       Hormonal imbalance


Through an initial consultation I will aim to understand your symptoms and needs, before prescribing suitable homeopathic remedies. As part of your treatment we will also discuss any diet or lifestyle changes that would aid your health. Initial consultations are around an hour in length, with follow up consultations around thirty minutes.

When I am not consulting, or getting my head into a homeopathy book or webinar, I also work as a part time secondary school Physics teacher. I enjoy jogging with my dog around the local countryside, regular yoga sessions and seeking out any live music.

I can offer consultations on Thursdays and Fridays throughout the day, Saturday mornings, or other weekday evenings. Please contact me with any questions or to book an appointment:

Holistic Remedial Massage Therapy

I am a Sports Massage Practitioner, Natural Energy Therapist, Psychotherapist, Life Coach, Personal Trainer, Rehabilitation Exercise Therapist and Lecturer. This gives me a wide scope of practice and the ability to provide treatments tailored to what you need. 

My career in Therapy began 27 years ago when I first began practicing as a Sports Massage Practitioner. I progressed from clinical practice into establishing GP referral schemes in the Southwest. Here patients with long term injuries or illness could receive the support, advice, treatment and exercise they needed to aid their recovery or transistion to living with life altering illnesses or injuries.

I later branched into teaching as a lecturer with a leading Health and Fitness Training Company, sharing what I had learned from my 10 years in the industry. For 8 years I taught Sports Massage, Fitness and Personal Training courses until I established LifeCare Health, a place where I could bring everything together into a single facility. 

Natural Energy Therapy

Having worked as a multi-discipline therapist for many years, I recognise that spiritual energy has an essential role in recovery/healing, wellbeing and enjoyment of living. It works to bring the mental, emotional and physical into balance, helps us find peace within and thereby improving the quality of day to day life. Working with the young and elderly, mums and mums-to-be, with those facing life-threatening illness or busy lives needing time out to recharge, Natural Energy Therapy works alongside current medical procedures and pharmacutical practices supporting side-effects, shocks and traumas.



Life coaching aims to help people identify habitual life patterns that may be holding a person back from becoming all they can be. It supports people on a journey of self discovery to their strengths and abilities which can include being happy and fullfilled at home or work, managing health conditions, reaching their full potental or achieving life ambitions.  

Life Coaching helps you find the power within to confidently face difficult challenges and overcome emotional barriers.

AromaTouch Massage

AromaTouch is a clinical approach to applying essential oils along the energy meridians and visceral contact points of the back and feet to help balance sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems of the body and bring about a more healthy energy flow.

This effective technique utilises eight individual essential oils and oil blends that have demonstrated profound effects on four conditions that constantly challenge the ability of the body’s systems to function optimally; stress, increased toxin levels, inflammation, and autonomic nervous system imbalance : so supporting the body to help:

  • Combat stress

  • Enhance immune function

  • Decrease inflammation and pain

  • Balances the autonomic nervous system

  • Support digestive and respiratory function

  • Brings balance and elevates mood.

The AromaTouch massage technique uses the wonderful doTERRA therapeutic grade essential oils and combines them with this special application touch technique.

The AromaTouch Technique uses specific guidelines and instructions for both dosage and application that make it a safe and effective way to receive the full benefits of essential oils.

Kerry Griggs Dip Counselling MBACP


I am a qualified Person centred counsellor. I work from a person centred foundation integrating other modes of counselling to suit individual client needs. I am also a trained and experienced Bereavement Counsellor (with Cruse). I provide both short and long term support to a broad range of clients.

As a person centred counsellor I believe the individual is the only true expert on themselves, at times it can be hard to hear the inner wisdom and guidance through the noise of modern life. We are all unique, so this means the person centred therapy does not have a pre made structure that we work to. Instead, my job is to get to know you, your wants/needs, and then work in ways that supports and meets your needs, choices and own self. 


So my service is by default a relational one, as this forms the building blocks of everything that follows.

I offer an environment built on compassion, a non judgemental attitude and warm authentic presence. Here you can discover meaningful insights about yourself, develop valuable life skills and move through periods of feeling stuck. Counselling is your space to explore and make sense of your inner world in safety.


I have experience of working with a range of issues such as:

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

  • Grief   

  • Relationship/Family difficulties

  • Domestic Abuse

  • Fears and Phobias

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT or Tapping)
and Reiki Healing


Margaret Cavanna is a Level 3 Advanced EFT Practitioner, Reiki Master and member of the EFT International professional body.


EFT can support men and women in working through many situations to achieve greater wellbeing and contentment including:

* Stress and anxiety – personal or professional

* Times of transition – in relationships, work or life stages such as the menopause

* Depression or lack of motivation

* Dealing with difficult medical diagnoses or physical pain

* Releasing long-held patterns that hold us back

* Facing uncertain times – connecting more deeply with our inner wisdom to cope more positively, connecting with others and with the joy of living

EFT is known as ‘energy psychology’ as it combines both.  You will be taught a sequence of tapping on several energy meridian points on the body mainly on the face and hands, whilst seated.  

The practitioner will also guide you in using phrases relating to your situation to help release unwanted feelings and beliefs.  Other techniques will be selected based on your needs and going at a pace that is comfortable for you.  

You can then use the basic sequence any time, although it is generally helpful to have several guided sessions to work on deeper patterns.

First session: £60  Further sessions: £55 (60 minutes). Combination of EFT & Healing (75 minutes): £70. Concessions available. Initial 20 minute phone consultation: Free

Couple Counselling & Psychosexual Therapy

MSc., BSc., Dip Psych, Dip Couples Counselling, Certified Psychosexual Therapist


I am a qualified psychotherapist, couple counsellor and psychosexual therapist with nearly forty years’ experience.  I offer one to one and couple sessions at the LifeCare clinic and online.

Individual Psychotherapy

People mostly come to therapy because something isn’t working in their lives. My approach is to help you explore what isn’t working in a way that focusses, not just on the problem itself, but on your response to the difficulties and challenges you’re experiencing. My aim is to enable you to access your own innate capacity to not only cope with whatever life throws at you, but to grow and achieve your full potential as a human being.

Couple Counselling 

Living in a close relationship with another human being isn’t easy. The ‘honeymoon period’ comes to an end and you need to find a way of living with each other, deepening the relationship and allowing it to grow and develop. This is a challenge and couples either ‘learn to live with’ their unfulfilled needs or split up. I see relationship problems as a wakeup call, a sign that the relationship needs to grow and develop, although I recognise that the problems can be very painful. I emphasise the importance of communication in relationships, particularly when it comes to expressing and listening to our own and each other’s feelings and needs. Our need to be right can make it difficult to listen to our partner, whilst our reluctance to allow ourselves to be vulnerable can get in the way of expressing our needs. I create a safe space where both partners can be open with each other and help them to learn to create this for themselves.

Psychosexual Therapy

In my work as a psychosexual therapist, I focus on, not just the physical issues that couples and individuals experience around sex – Erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, difficulties with orgasm or penetration etc., but also the emotional or psychological difficulties which can often underly these. The focus in sex is often either on ‘performance’ - being good enough to ‘satisfy’ your partner, or on the discharge of your own pent-up libido or sexual energy. By encouraging individuals and couples to focus more on their connection, both with themselves and their own body and with their partner and their body, I believe that sex can become a way of sharing both your body and your love with your partner.

Acupuncture and Reiki

Dip.Ac Usui Reiki Level 2


I use an integrated method of 5 elements and Traditional Chinese Medicine. I work with patients to establish a bespoke treatment plan, based on an in-depth case-history alongside other relevant diagnostic methods specific to Chinese Medicine.

I have particular interest in women’s health - menstrual issues, hormonal balance, fertility and menopause.

Other areas of interest and specialisation include:

● Anxiety, insomnia, migraines and digestive issues.

● Post-viral conditions and management of chronic health issues, including long-Covid, MS and chronic fatigue syndrome.

I also find it can be very beneficial to support patients undergoing treatment for cancer or recovering from surgery.

Other treatments

In addition to acupuncture I also offer cupping therapy - where heated glass cups are placed along the back using a vacuum technique. Cups are used to relieve back pain, soothe muscular discomfort and boost immunity. The experience is similar to massage and can be very relaxing.

Moxibustion therapy is also available - moxibustion is the burning of an therapeutic herb (mugwort) either at the tip of a needle or as a heat-source near the skin to introduce warmth and healing deeper into the body.


I am a Level 2 Usui Reiki practitioner. Reiki is a hands-off healing technique which gently directs energy to where a patient needs it most - I see it as enabling a patient to relax deeply and connect to their own innate healing abilities. This can often be a very good place to start a healing journey. Reiki can be beneficial for almost any condition but is particularly good for anxiety and stress.
