She studied acupuncture at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading. During her studies she was fortunate enough to work at the Dragon Acupuncture Project in Brighton. The Dragon was the UK’s first non-NHS funded multi-bed acupuncture clinic, and being involved in this pioneering and very successful clinic has fundamentally shaped her practice.
In 2007, she launched ACMAC (www.acmac.net), to gather information about multi-bed practice, list all the UK multi-bed clinics, and to offer support and encouragement to help new clinics get started.
Charlie is passionate about having as great a section of our community as possible be able to access high-quality treatment often enough, and for long enough, to get better and stay better. She feels it is a pleasure therefore to be working at the low-cost drop-in at The Acupuncture Clinic.
Charlie lives in Uckfield with her husband and young son, Ben. She love acupuncture, gardening, walking and watching the availability of affordable and accessible acupuncture grow.
