About Balwant Kaur

Balwant Kaur - acupuncture in South Manchester and Gatley, CheadleI practise acupuncture in South Manchester and Gatley, Cheadle, Cheshire.  I have previously worked as an acupuncturist at Spire Manchester Hospital.  As an educator I run workshops in paediatric home healthcare and teach acupressure for natural childbirth to practitioners working with pregnant women in the North West.

I qualified as an acupuncturist in 2003, am a member of the British Acupuncture Council and registered with the relevant local authorities.  I am a highly experienced practitioner and at postgraduate level I have studied under some of the world’s most learned and respected teachers in the fields of advanced acupuncture, moxibustion and diagnosis skills.  As well as paediatrics, obstetrics, gynaecology and fertility support.  Within my general practice I skilfully treat a broad and complex range of chronic and acute health related difficulties.

I have a deep respect for the wealth of wisdom, knowledge and natural ethics contained within traditional acupuncture.  My upbringing was influenced by energetic based medicine, as used by my ancestors and relatives from India.  This has reinforced the depth of my conceptual understanding of Chinese medicine.  I am a parent and my work style is also influenced by extensive previous experience of professional work with children and adults in a variety of therapeutic and social care settings.

Specialist areas

I am a member of The Acupuncture Fertility Network and a founding member of The Acupuncture Childbirth Team North West.

I have a specialist interest in using acupuncture to support fertility, pregnancy, childbirth and postnatal care.  I became interested in acupuncture whilst pregnant and have experienced the power of acupuncture in resolving pregnancy related issues and supporting postnatal recovery.

Alongside my general practice I also offer specialised acupuncture for babies, children and young people.  I am adept at matching my approach to a child’s needs which includes using Shonishin, a gentle and non-invasive specialised Japanese paediatric acupuncture method.
