If you’re not sure whether acupuncture or Chinese Medicine is for you, please phone, email or call in at the clinic and we’ll give you an honest assessment of whether this form of treatment may be able to help. We will be able to tell you if there is any evidence for using this treatment for your condition and we will not make exaggerated claims.

About Acupuncture First

Trish Dodd BSc ATCM

Trish completed three years full-time training, including more than 500 hours of clinical practice, in June 2006, graduating with BSc First Class honours from the University of Wales. At the time this was one of just five degree courses in Traditional Chinese Medicine in the UK.

Before this, Trish had spent nearly 20 years in Marketing.

The Acupuncture First clinic opened in December 2006 in Heswall, with the aim of creating a calm, private and professional environment to deliver the best possible care to patients.

Trish is a full member of the Association of Traditional Chinese Medicine (ATCM) and is registered with Wirral Borough Council for Environmental Health requirements.
