About Sharon

Sharon Hansford Lic. Ac., B A (Hons), MBAcC, FRA

Choosing the right acupuncturist is important therefore Sharon invites you to book aSharon Ashgrove picturefree 15 minute consultation with no obligation. This is an opportunity to get to know Sharon and ask questions about acupuncture. Sharon recognises that you should feel comfortable with her as your practitioner so that you receive the best results from treatment, the practitioner and patient must work well together. The relationship is built on trust, openness and honesty.

This practitioner stumbled upon acupuncture by chance whilst visiting China. This holiday was to change the direction of her life, she left the career she had known for over 20 years as she felt the benefits of her own treatments. In turn Sharon would like to offer patients the same standards of care. She is committed to providing the best possible service to her clients. She obtained her Licentiate and First Class BA (Hons) degree in Traditional Acupuncture, validated by Oxford Brookes University.
