Welcome to KK Health & Wellbeing
The Road to a Better You
I aim to help all my patients live the healthiest, most comfortable lives that they can – a significant part of this is self-care and stress management.
A major part of my ethos is making sure you are happy and comfortable, so you can get the best out of your treatments. There is no judgement here for any health issues and being honest and open with each other will help me get the best course of action to help you.
I look to create a relaxed and informal atmosphere where you can be yourself and take advantage of treatments that can help with both your mental and physical wellbeing. If you are anxious about coming to me for a treatment and want further info or support, please just let me know.
If you’ve been to your GP on numerous occasions and don’t feel you’re getting listened to, if you’re taking medication to mask symptoms – come work with me and see how I can help you. It’s never a case of reducing or stopping your normal medication, it’s a case of complimenting your medication with Acupuncture, but medication for pain I can probably help you to reduce and to cope with chronic pain easier.
Acupuncture can help with many health issues, please have a look at treatments section for more info, so if you’re looking to work with someone who is professional, knowledgeable, kind and effective, please get in touch.
All About Me
Kelly King BSc (Hons), MBAA, RBAF, FEA. Acupuncturist, Health & Wellbeing Consultant
Many years ago I had issues with shoulder pain, brought on by a mixture of poor posture and extreme work related stress. I’d tried many ways to ease the pain and help myself, from physiotherapy (just didn’t work for me, I was given 3 session’s and sent on my way), I did the exercises provided by the physio and some you tube self help videos with some success, painkillers (which simply masked the pain).
I had a friend recommend Acupuncture to me and I just thought it wouldn’t help, it was a load of rubbish. But, in my desperation (which to be honest, is where most patients find themselves before they discover Acupuncture!), I went along to her Acupuncturist.
I’m not exaggerating when I say I was blown away. It wasn’t as scary as I thought (I was a very anxious person, to boot), I felt like the Practitioner really listened to me, I wasn’t made to feel stupid or self absorbed with my complaints.
1st session I noticed a difference, 8 sessions in and I could move my arm freely again and the pain was significantly reduced. Because of general discussions with my Practitioner during the treatments, I then began to explore treatments for other ailments. Mainly anxiety, insomnia and my recently diagnosed Diabetes. I genuinely felt like a different person a few months in.
And from there on in I fell in love with and became amazed by Acupuncture.
In 2016 I decided I would like to learn more about Acupuncture, I found I could complete a Degree in Acupuncture and decided to take the plunge. Best decision I ever made.
In October 2020 (delayed due to Covid), I completed and obtained a BSc (Hons) in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine from the country’s leading teaching provider in TCM and Acupuncture - the prestigious Northern College of Acupuncture, in York.

There is evidence that Acupuncture influences the production of and distribution of a great many neurotransmitters and neuromodulators, and this in turn alters the perception of pain
