Kirsty Hodgson – Acupuncturist
“I graduated from Salford University with a 1st class BSc (hons) degree in complementary medicine practice in 2001 and have worked at Lochthorn Medical Centre since then.
My appreciation of acupuncture lies in its ability to treat the person and not just the problem.
I find it a rewarding and fulfilling career and enjoy helping people to overcome their difficulties and regain better health. Much of my work involves helping people to control pain following a wide variety of conditions.
For the past ten years I have used acupuncture for the care of patients with advanced progressive illnesses such as Cancer and OCPD. I regularly update my training for acupuncture in Palliative care.
I have special interests in the use of acupuncture to enhance fertility and IVF treatment and have undertaken postgraduate training with Zita West, a pioneer in this field.”
