Helping with modern life’s health conditions

Hello and welcome. My name is Kim Kakebe and I am a Bristol based acupuncturist with over 10 years experience helping a wide variety of clients – from those who are just feeling a bit under par to those with serious life-changing illnesses.

I provide traditional acupuncture to help with a variety of health issues such as headaches, women's problems such as painful periods and the menopause, back pain including sciatica, digestive problems, low mood, anxiety, support with autoimmune disorders, pain and stress. I trained in 5-element and TCM (traditional Chinese medicine) and Japanese styles of acupuncture. I also use other techniques such as Tui Na massage, cupping, gua sha, moxa and lifestyle advice to address numerous health conditions.

I strongly believe that acupuncture can genuinely improve one’s health and well-being in almost any circumstance.

I currently practice in 2 locations in Redland, North Bristol and in Wrington, near Congresbury.

I have always had an interest in well-being as family health concerns played a significant part in my early life. I trained at the eminent College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading, UK and qualified in 2008.

I have undertaken further training in Chinese medical massage, known as Tui Na (pronounced “twee-na”) in which I have a diploma.
I regularly continue to develop my skills and knowledge through further study and supervision.

"Kim is a very professional and approachable acupuncturist. She has helped me from the first email I sent her until my last treatment. I never felt rushed, I always felt nothing was too much for Kim. The treatment helped me with my anxiety, panic attacks and morning sickness all at the same time. I have felt a difference after the first treatment. I don't know how I would have coped with all the issues I faced at the same time in such a short period without Kim. I can't recommend her enough. "

I have a particular interest in working with those who are at a crossroads with their health and are on a quest to improve their situation and work towards enduring change.

In my 14 years of practicing I have had success working with people with a wide range of problems from headaches to back and joint pain, from tiredness and anxiety to women’s issues and fertility, and many many more.

Prior to training in traditional acupuncture I worked in the world of publishing helping to produce books and magazines in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Brussels. I enjoy learning about other cultures, languages and cuisines as well as getting outdoors walking.

I am fully licensed and insured and am a member of the British Acupuncture Council.
