Previously from Lincolnshire, Fiona and her family have recently moved to Devon and joined the team at The Beresford Clinic to share her expertise and knowledge of using acupuncture to treat many health issues such as anxiety, depression, chronic pain, migraines and more.
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medical technique used for centuries to relieve pain treat disease and improve general health and wellbeing. The technique uses small needles which are inserted into the skin at precise nerve points to influence tissues, glands and organs functions and balance your energy.
Fiona is a member of the British Acupuncture Council (MBAcC) and originally trained in Japanese five-element acupuncture at Leamington spa but since then, I have studied Traditional Chinese Medicine(TCM) in London and Reading. More recently, I studied Kiko Masumoto’s method of acupuncture and Master Tung’s Korean style of acupuncture.
“I love to treat men, women and children of all ages and a wide variety of health problems, both physical and emotional. The most common problems patients come with are stress, sciatica and arthritis, back pain, digestive problems, fertility, MS and more recently Long Covid. I enjoy treating complex conditions and patients with a mixed bag of symptoms, but acupuncture is also a very good preventative treatment, so it makes a good MOT!”

What our clients say about us
“Just wanted to say how delighted I am with the Botox treatment Jacqui gave me last week. Her expert appraisal and attention to detail – to lift my sagging jawline, down-turned lips and furrowed brow – was all achieved without the ubiquitous ‘wind tunnel’ effect! Thank you Jacqui for restoring the serene, natural looking younger me!”
I came out of the clinic feeling a million dollars, work colleagues commented on how well I looked, friends have asked what am I taking to look so well, I want to keep this place my own secret but felt that is selfish I need to share my great experience. Thank You Beresford for giving me back my confidence.”
“I have been using the Beresford Clinic for quite some time now, and cannot recommend them highly enough. The Staff are always kind and helpful, and the treatments have helped change my life. All this in a superb setting and everything treated in with complete confidentiality. Thank you so much!”
