HEIDI O’NEILL Member of British Acupuncture Council MBAcC, BSc (Hons), LicAc

“I am committed to helping people realise their health potential – every patient is individual. Use it as a part of your healthy lifestyle.”

Heidi practices Traditional Chinese Acupuncture in Devon – Barnstaple and South Molton. She decided to re-train and pursue a career in acupuncture after becoming fascinated by how it contributes to her own health and wellbeing. She achieved a Bachelor of Science degree in Acupuncture after training for 4 years at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine, a combined style of acupuncture that draws on the strengths of both Five Element and Traditional Chinese Medicine doctrines. This integrated approach enables her to support patients on both a physical and mental emotional level.

As a Traditional Chinese practitioner she sees people with a diverse range of conditions and keeps up-to-date with continuing professional development, including additional specialist training in facial revitalisation acupuncture, Fertility and Gua Sha.
