Welcome to KK Health & Wellbeing
The Road to a Better You
KK Health and Wellbeing aims to help all of our clients live the healthiest lives they can. A significant part of this is self-care and stress management.
A major part of our ethos is making sure you are happy & comfortable. Do you not take the time to look after yourself or to have a much needed treatment due to being uncomfortable? Either because you don't normally have treatments so are unsure of the 'process' and feel out of place? Maybe due to body confidence issues? We've been there too!
Our aim here is to create a relaxed, informal atmosphere where you can be yourself and take advantage of treatments and therapies that can help you manage day to day stresses and help both your mental and physical wellbeing.
If you have any questions or concerns just pop us an email (there is no such thing as a 'daft' question!) - why not take the plunge and come along for a treatment?
Take a look at some of the therapies we offer and when ready, make your booking online in the drop down menu top right, for a time that's convenient for you.
Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.

All About Me
Kelly King BSc (Hons), MBAcC, 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.
4 years ago 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
