My name is Joanna Teasdale and I am a fully qualified, traditional acupuncturist working from a quiet and relaxing clinic in West Mersea.

I graduated from The Acupuncture Academy  and was awarded a Merit for the Professional Licentiate in Acupuncture, which is a three year degree qualification accredited by the British Acupuncture Accreditation Board.  I was also Highly Commended for my clinical work. My training was extensive and covered all aspects of Chinese medical and acupuncture theory, with a focus on the five element approach.  This means that I will consider your main health problem, together with a holistic approach to you as an individual.

I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council and adhere to the Council’s Codes of Safe Practice and Professional conduct. British Acupuncture Council members are also registered with the Professional Standards Authority which is a government body set up to regulate health and social care providers, and is accountable to Parliament.

My clinic is licensed by  Colchester Borough Council and I hold full medical malpractice and public/products liability insurance cover.
