About Barefoot Medicine International

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.

For your convenience, bookings are done online so you can check availability, re-schedule or block-book your treatments.  You will receive a reminder email 48 hours before your session with a button to cancel or reschedule if it is not convenient for you.

She is totally focussed on the patient

Acupuncture Treatment

I have been treated by Simone for around 5 years. The healing really starts when she enters the room. She is totally focussed on the patient. She poses thoughtful questions to clarify any issues. She is a thorough, detailed, empathetic practitioner with a deep understanding of Chinese medicine.

Through years of on-going study and practice, she is one of the most insightful acupuncturists in the field and an absolute blessing to me.

Treated by: Ms Simone Buehner (Davis)

Thank you so much for your feedback, Laura. It has been an absolute pleasure getting to know you and it is always rewarding to have someone as open to trying out diet & lifestyle changes as you are! Thank you for embracing the 'teamwork' aspect of healing!

I always leave with a sense of well-being

5 50

I have had treatments from this acupuncturist/herbalist over the past four years. Her manner welcoming she puts you at your ease immediately as she talks to you, taking notes and asking questions before proceeding with your treatment. I find her competent, intuitive and very knowledgeable about her craft. I always leave with a sense of well-being. She helped with my recovery from open-heart surgery.

My experience was excellent.

Treated by: Ms Simone Buehner (Davis)

Thank you for your feedback, Angela. Your approach to health has also been an inspiration to me and it is always a pleasure to help people who are so eager to help themselves. I'm delighted to see how well things have gone for you ever since your surgery, long may it last.

I was surprised at how quickly she was able to tell me what my problems were

5 50

I have been having treatment for about 6 months to tackle my endometriosis pain. Simone has worked her magic and along with some Chinese herbs I have been pain-free.

I would definitely recommend Barefoot Medicines. Simone makes you feel very relaxed. I was surprised at how quickly she was able to tell me what my problems were and how my symptoms disappeared with regular appointments.

Treated by: Ms Simone Buehner (Davis)

I'm delighted to have been able to help with the pain from your endometriosis, Emma, and thank you for being so willing to write such an open review on here as so many people are in a similar situation but don't know that acupuncture and herbs can help!

Really made a key difference to me, not just to the back pain but to my overall well being

5 50 Massage, Acupuncture Treatment

I had recurrent and long-term lower back pain issues. I have seen osteopaths and physiotherapists for this, they did help, but the issue kept coming back.

Simone offered a tailored treatment of acupuncture, massage and Chinese Medicine (Herbs) that really made a key difference to me, not just to the back pain but to my overall well being.

Lovely location and serene surroundings. Stripped back pine flooring and a roaring fire in the stove, what's not to like? Easy to reach by public transport (Dinas Powys train station is 10-15 minutes walk away).
