Simone Buehner (formerly Davis), owner of Barefoot Medicine, is a highly experienced acupuncturist, herbalist and nutritional therapist with 20 years' experience in complementary therapies since leaving the corporate world behind in 2001. She worked for the British Acupuncture Council for four years as a Professional Development Lead assisting acupuncturists across Wales, Herefordshire & Shropshire with CPD and training. She is also a Senior Associate of the Royal Society of Medicine.
As with all complementary and alternative therapies, nutrition is at the heart of any healing process, so Simone offers functional medicine lab tests to check your gut integrity, adrenal fatigue lab tests and many others. She runs a monthly detox programme with free weekly Zoom (video-conferencing) calls to support her clients as they help themselves to heal in between their clinic sessions.
Simone sees patients with a very wide variety of healthcare matters, some of which are 'known' conditions such as unexplained infertility, pain management, eczema, stress & anxiety, PTSD, musculo-skeletal pain, menopausal symptoms, children's health, side-effects of conventional medicines etc - but sometimes people come saying they 'just don't feel right', so we work together to get that person back on track.
Some of Simone's long-term regular patients travel over 100 miles for treatment!
All the treatments are tailored to the needs of each individual client and following the initial consultation, Simone will draw up a treatment strategy that may combine traditional and 5-element acupuncture, electro-acupuncture, herbals, cupping therapy, moxibustion, heat therapy, massage and nutritional advice. We will also agree goals for treatment that will be reviewed every five sessions to ensure you are getting what you need and are seeing results.
Areas of special interest are cancer care in Wales and we help many patients to deal with the side effects of treatment for lung cancer, breast cancer, testicular cancer, bowel cancer and other conditions that involve adverse side effects from chemotherapy or radiotherapy.
We are also proud to work closely with military veterans and help them deal with post-conflict mental health disorders such as PTSD, stress, nightmares, social anxiety, panic attacks etc as well as any physical pain and on-going difficulties they may have. In my experience, this is where acupuncture comes into its own yet is so little known about.
