Five Element Acupuncture

Louise Webster Lic.Ac. MBAcC

About me

In 1998, following a shoulder injury and subsequent related problems, Louise gave up her career as a professional musician and shortly after decided to work to help others through natural and holistic therapies, having explored many different avenues for her own issues.

After training as a Reflexologist and Sports Massage Therapist, and helping many athletes, dancers and musicians with repetitive strain injuries, she graduated from the School of Five Element Acupuncture, London in 2004.

Louise is also a trained Vinyasa yoga teacher and nutritional therapist, and has committed her skills and energy to helping people through her practice ever since.
