Amy Burrell – Acupuncturist

My name is Amy Burrell and I am a fully qualified, traditional acupuncturist working from quiet and relaxing clinics in County Durham.

Who is Amy?

I graduated from The Acupuncture Academy in 2016 and was awarded a Distinction for the Professional Licentiate in Acupuncture, as well as a 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 Uttlesford District Council and I hold full medical malpractice and public/products liability insurance cover.

British Acupuncture Council Member

The British Acupuncture Council

I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) which is the leading self-regulatory body for the practice of traditional acupuncture in the UK. It is a member-led organisation, governed by an elected Governing Board and driven by a specialist staff team.

They provide members with a wide range of services to facilitate practice and ensure the highest standards. Their responsibilities include:

maintaining the highest professional standards of practice for acupuncture in the UK
overseeing and accrediting acupuncture education to ensure excellence in training
funding evidence-based clinical research on the benefits of traditional acupuncture
As a member I am bound by the Council’s stringent Standards of Practice and Codes of Ethics.

The Professional Standards Authority<br />

The Professional Standards Authority

The Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care is a government body set up to oversee statutory bodies that hold voluntary registers of health and social care professionals, such as the British Acupuncture Council.

Acupuncture in the UK is not covered by statutory regulation, and as such it was felt that distinguishing between acupuncturists who had undertaken short courses, and those that had undertaken more extensive study, was of interest to members of the general public looking for high standards of care. The BAcC was an early member of the Professional Standards Authority’s ‘Accredited Voluntary Register’ (AVR), which recognises the fact that they maintain high standards of training, safe practice and professional conduct among members.

You can read the BAcC’s entry on their register here if you would like to know more.

“Amy is fantastic! So knowledgeable and supportive. She’s helped me so much with my hayfever – I can’t believe the difference this year – I’m saving a fortune on other medications (and tissues!).”

“I have been receiving treatment from Amy for a couple of months now, and I’m on treatment six. From the 2nd treatment, I noticed a very remarkable improvement in my sleep quantity and quality and a reduction in my stress levels. I have also noticed an UNBELIEVABLE improvement in my bowel movements.”

“The acupuncture as clearly worked, but Amy’s customer service level also makes each session both beneficial to me mentally and physically while also being a pleasant visit. She is both friendly and professional. I would thoroughly recommend her.”
