Sian Morriss portrait

I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC). BAcC is the leading self-regulatory body for the practice of traditional acupuncture in the UK. This means I am insured and adhere to high professional standards ensuring the best possible treatment for you.

Qualifications and experience

I graduated in 2010 with a BSc in Acupuncture from the internationally renowned College of Integrated Chinese Medicine whose courses are validated by Kingston University.

I have practiced in Central London, South London and Abingdon, and my current base is in Reading (Berkshire, UK).

I am very fortunate to work alongside Chris Morriss, who is an osteopath with over 20 years experience. I draw on his expertise to assist in treatment of musculo-skeletal complaints and we often work together to optimise treatment outcomes.

Why I am an acupuncturist

I have experienced the benefits of acupuncture firsthand. Treatment helped and left me feeling good. I was so impressed by the results I wanted to find out how it worked.

Chinese Medicine is a diagnostic system within itself. That means when you are treated by a Traditional Acupuncturist they will diagnose your complaint according to Chinese Medicine. As a practitioner this provides the challenge of finding the root cause of the ailment through questioning the patients complaint and pulse and tongue diagnosis. This means I have to think and problem solve. I enjoy that I am constantly learning and have the great pleasure of meeting many people from all walks of life while working to help them get well.

More about me

I have a young family and I love music. I play oboe, guitar and sing, having studied music and visual arts at Brighton University before becoming an acupuncturist. I also love travelling and meditation.
