Borders Acupuncture

About Alison

Acupuncture & Massage

in the Scottish Borders


I first discovered acupuncture as a patient and found it helpful and fascinating. This inspired a change of career and I graduated from the London College of Traditional Acupuncture with a degree in Acupuncture in 2008. In 2009, I undertook further training in Qi Gong Tui Na (therapeutic massage) at Westminster University. 

After my training, I continued to live in London working with acupuncture and massage in a complementary therapy clinic and at a clinic for drug and alcohol addiction. 

Having always wished to live in Scotland again, I moved back to the Borders in 2015 and was fortunate to find a place within the lovely team at the Border Physiotherapy Clinic


As an Acupuncturist, I work with people who are affected by a broad range of conditions, from pain (headaches to back pain and everything in between) to stomach problems to emotional issues. I enjoy meeting people and listening to their stories.    

I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC). The BAcC is the UK's largest professional body for the practice of Acupuncture and its members are insured, fully accredited and work to the highest professional standards.
