Sharon is the sole practitioner and has undergone a three year degree course and Licenciate in Acupuncture. This means that she is fully qualified and is a full member of the British Acupuncture Council. As such she still completes continuing professional development to keep up to date with aquired skills and strives to give her patients high standards of care.

 Sharon's flexibility means that you are not tied to rigid hours of availalblity, she appreciates the need to work some evenings and weekends to fit in with the busy work schedules that her patients are faced with. Therefore clinic opening times are not set in stone. However, visits are by appointment only. Patients may bring in their friend or relative if they so wish to join the consultation but there is no waiting facility outside of the clinic. For those under sixteen a parent or guardian must attend.  

Sharon offers body acupuncture, auricular (ear), acupressure, cupping, cosmetic facial acupuncture, gua sha massage, moxibustion and Korean hand therapy.

Treatments are undertaken for a variety of symptoms and Sharon is happy to discuss these with you to see if acupuncture can help. Some patients use it for general wellbeing. Sharon specialises in anxiety and stress management, pain control, care in pregnancy and fertility issues.

If you are not local Sharon has other clinics in Leicester, Rugby, Leamington and Higham Ferrers that may be more accessible. Or if you are housebound a home visit may be possible on request.

"Helping to maintain my energy levels"
4.5 50Reviewed 25 Sep 2015 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Acupuncturist Consultation
I am still enjoying treatment to help in dealing with surgery and post surgery treatment for breast cancer. I have found the support very helpful in maintaining my energy levels, ridding my body of the toxins and anxiety linked to my diagnosis.

I have found the service accessible and very friendly. The acupuncturists are professionals with a caring approach who make your feel welcome and seek to adapt their treatment to my specific needs. I would not hesitate in recommending this clinic to anyone in need of a general health boost or in dealing with specific medical conditions.

Job Title:
  Practice Manager
  Acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine
Lic. Ac., B A (Hons), MBAcC, FRA. Choosing the right acupuncturist is important therefore Sharon invites you to book aSharon Ashgrove picturefree 15 minute consultation with no obligation. This is an opportunity to get to know Sharon and ask questions about acupuncture. Sharon recognises that you should feel comfortable with her as your practitioner so that you receive the best results from treatment, the practitioner and patient must work well together. The relationship is built on trust, openness and honesty. This practitioner stumbled upon acupuncture by chance whilst visiting China. This holiday was to change the direction of her life, she left the career she had known for over 20 years as she felt the benefits of her own treatments. In turn Sharon would like to offer patients the same standards of care. She is committed to providing the best possible service to her clients. She obtained her Licentiate and First Class BA (Hons) degree in Traditional Acupuncture, validated by Oxford Brookes University.
