Our ethos and background

by Helen Smallwood – Acupuncturist www.shaftesburyclinic.com

Welcome to the first our our Bedford Consulting Rooms: BCR Blogs.  These page will feature contributions from our practitioners and explaining or treatment modalities offered here at 4 Goldington Road.

You’ll also be able to see the list of our offering as it grows, and see the who’s who of our professional practitioners.  This will enable you to contact directly, any of the practitioners to find out what they can offer in respect of your needs and how their approach may benefit you.

In the meantime, you may be wondering who we are and what we are doing, and what our approach is?  What got us started and how did we end up with a multi-disciplinary team at Goldington Road, and what are our plans from here?

I started practising acupuncture in 2008, after attaining a first class honours degree accredited by Oxford Brookes.  Working on my own, despite very little advertising I quickly became busy, and when I had my first child in 2009 I asked one of my colleagues who I had trained with to join me and cover my maternity leave and as we became even busier, yet another colleague joined us.  I returned to work with us all working, and things carried on growing.

From about the second year in practise, I started getting room rental queries from practitioners other than of acupuncture as by now practitioners and patients recognised Shaftesbury Clinic.  This set me on a path to collaboration which is continuing to grow, and is very positive and beneficial for patients.  We now collaborate with other highly trained specialists under one roof.

Our vision is to offer high quality treatments by professional pracitioners for a range of healthcare needs near Bedford town centre.  We are growing all the time, so if you are practitioner then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
