Hina Patel BA(Hons), MPhil, MBAcC
Hina has been practising traditional acupuncture since 1998. Her interest was initially sparked after receiving treatment as a last resort for a bout of acne in her mid twenties when all conventional treatments had failed. Hina was intrigued by the changes she experienced which accompanied the improvement in her skin condition. She not only felt stronger in herself but could also see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Hina's inherent curiosity eventually led to her completing a three year training course at the College of Traditional Acupuncture in Leamington Spa. She is enrolled in a programme of continuous professional development with an eminent traditional acupuncturist and has been awarded a Master of Philosophy from the School of Health and Related Research at the University of Sheffield for her research into acupuncture.
Her passionate aim is to offer individualised treatments that treat the person as well as the condition, making certain that her patients are given the tools and abilities to maintain their progress once the treatment is over.
