Vanessa Evans (Lic.Ac MBAcC)
Hi, I'm Vanessa, an East London based acupuncturist practicing in Walthamstow and Dalston. Acupuncture is about so much more than just needles. Your session is a space for you to relax, to speak freely and feel supported in taking control of your health. My treatments are an opportunity to explore different approaches, gather practical information and work out all the ways I can help you to feel well.
Before becoming an Acupuncturist I taught Yoga, Breathwork, Mindfulness and Meditation for 7 years and am continually driven to find practical ways to bring more ease to our busy lives. My aim is to create a space where the principles of this ancient medicine make sense alongside our modern lifestyles. I place a great deal of importance on simple lifestyle shifts in diet, movement and self awareness (Yang Sheng) so that your appointment extends far beyond our meeting. I have a special interest in women’s health and menstrual wellness.
I have completed a 3 year degree licentiate with the City College of Acupuncture, a school accredited by the British Acupuncture Accreditation Board, training under some of the UK’s leading acupuncturists. I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC), and abide by a code of ethics which maintains high standards of education, discipline and practice. I also hold a level 2 qualification in Counselling Skills with an emphasis on listening and non judgemental skills.
