Sharon Hansford

 Lic. Ac. BA(Hons)  MBAcC

Sharon stumbled upon acupuncture by chance whilst visiting China. This holiday was to change the direction of her life; she left the career she had known for over 20 years as she felt the benefits of her own treatments. Sharon qualified in 2009 with a first class honours at The College of Traditional Acupuncture in Hatton. She has since taught and supervised at The Acupuncture Academy.

Alongside body acupuncture Sharon is also trained in Facial Cosmetic Acupuncture; Korean Hand Therapy (for those with needle phobias); cupping; gua sha; magnet therapy and auricular (ear) acupuncture.

Sharon has a special interest in pain, mental health, care in pregnancy and meeting those couples with fertility issues.  

Alongside her private practices in Leicestershire, Warwickshire and Northamptonshire, Sharon also runs the Acupuncture Community Clinic in Rugby at Arnold House so appointments can work between the two clinics.
