Liz Halsey

“A practitioner of acupuncture, osteopathy and cranial osteopathy, I use a mix of skills to tailor each treatment to the client’s needs.”

“I see the session as a ‘reset’ to calm symptoms and allow freer movement, creating the right conditions for the body to heal itself. Alongside this, I aim to help the client increase their understanding of their problem and guide them towards optimal self-management.”

Practice experience

I have worked fulltime in private practice as an osteopath since 2003. Since 2006 I have also offered acupuncture. I volunteered as an acupuncturist at St Ann’s Hospice, Herald Green, between 2015 and 2016. From 2016 until 2021 I was the acupuncturist at the Neil Cliffe Centre (based at Wythenshawe Hospital and run by St. Ann’s Hospice), where I helped support people with life-limiting conditions.

Exercise and sport have always been an important part of my life, with weekly training sessions with a personal trainer from 2014 adding to my knowledge.

Life-long learning

I have a longstanding interest in holistic healing traditions from around the world. I have studied different styles of bodywork including Chinese (Tuina), Indian (Ayurvedic), Japanese (Shiatsu), Swedish, Thai and ‘No-Hands’ massage methods.

My acupuncture practice is based primarily on medical acupuncture but I have also studied traditional Chinese acupuncture to degree level.

I also stay up to date with scientific progress in orthopaedic and acupuncture practice by attending educational events in local hospitals and professional courses around the country.

Healthcare insurance companies

I am registered with many of the major healthcare insurance companies. If I am not registered with your insurance company, let me know and I will check to see if I can become a provider with them too.

Caring for our planet

Wherever possible I make choices that help us live sustainably. In my practice I use acupuncture needles with biodegradable packaging and plastic-free guide tubes, and locally sourced massage waxes made from natural ingredients.
