About me

Claire Truss acupuncturist

I am an acupuncturist based in Loughton, Essex.

My first experience of acupuncture was in 2004, when I sought out an acupuncturist for fertility issues. Having experienced the positive effects acupuncture can have, I decided it was something I wanted to study further.  I had to delay my studies as I fell pregnant.  I went straight to college after my second child started school.

I studied acupuncture and naturopathy for 4 years with the College of Naturopathic Medicine (CNM) in London.

I was awarded “Overall academic and clinical results in Acupuncture” by CNM and I was awarded a special “Prize for Excellence in TCM Study” by ATCM.

After graduating I set up practice in Buckhurst Hill, Essex.

Post graduation, I  volunteered in the North London Hospice acupuncture multi-bed clinic at Winchmore Hill for a year.

Besides my private practice, I also work at City College of Acupuncture . I initially assisted year 1 & 2 trainee acupuncturists in their anatomy, point location and practical technique classes, before being asked to lecture both year 1 & 2 anatomy & point location and year 3 business modules.

I have special interests in fertility, pregnancy & childbirth and pain management.

I have undertaken post graduate training in:

  • infertility
  • assisted reproduction
  • pregnancy
  • pain management
  • Chinese herbal liniments for sports injuries
  • Tui na massage
  • sports taping
  • Electro-Acupuncture
  • Japanese Moxa

I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council & adhere to their codes of safe practice and the Acupuncture Fertility Network.
