About Sue Kalicinska

I made a radical career change and went from being medical physicist to embracing alternative therapies and healing people through acupuncture. I was originally a physicist working in Medical Physics. I have degrees in physics and nuclear technology! Over the years I got to thinking that there must be a more natural way of helping people to stay healthy or regain health that didn’t involve animal research. At the time I was suffering from terrible hayfever. A friend recommended acupuncture. I was sceptical to say the least, but I was amazed to find that as a result of the treatment, my symptoms disappeared. I knew I had found something powerful and wanted to share the results with others. So, I decided to make a radical career change and train to become an acupuncturist. My scientific colleagues thought I was mad! Before I started training, I spent two years as a VSO volunteer science teacher in Tuvalu. When my placement was up, I was still sure about the career change and started my training. For the last 25 years I’ve been helping people recover from all kinds of health problems, including back and neck pain, sciatica, frozen shoulder, digestive problems and allergies, hormonal issues, to name a few. I also help men and women with fertility problems, which is very rewarding. I take a holistic approach to healing, helping people to understand themselves, which allows their body to begin the healing process. I am offering a complete approach to well-being. It’s not just about getting better from a complaint, rather it’s about understanding how to maintain your health, cope with stresses and really get the best out of life. Another wonderful aspect of acupuncture is facial revitalization. This gives you the “feel good factor” plus! With facial revitalization acupuncture you can feel and look good. It is sometimes called cosmetic acupuncture but it does more than reduce wrinkles as it works on your inner well-being as well as the outer appearance. Things have come a long way for British Acupuncture since I started but we are still fighting for state registration and a clear recognition of the difference between traditional and so called medical acupuncture. We train for a minimum of three years while some GPs needle people with just a few weeks training!

Restless sleep, tossing and turning through the night? A recent survey* commissioned by my professional organisation, the British Acupuncture Council, has revealed that we’re a nation of zombies. 1 in 5 of us claim to feel like one after a … Continue reading
