My name is Anne Etherton B.Sc., M.Sc., Dip Ac., PGDip CHM., MBAcC, MRCHM. My house and practice is situated in Sutton Bonington, a small village a few miles off the A6, between Loughborough and Kegworth. I am married and have a daughter.
I was born in Gloucestershire in the early '60s, and grew up there. I attended university in Bristol, where I read Microbiology. After completing my degree, I worked in public health and the food industry. I worked in industry for 13 years before deciding to study Acupuncture. I first met Acupuncture in 1986 when talking to the mother of a friend of mine who was an Acupuncturist. I found the subject fascinating because it treated the person as a whole and it was a method of improving health without using drugs. I studied for 4 years at the Northern College of Acupuncture in York, and qualified in 1999 with a Diploma of Acupuncture and a Master of Science from the University of Wales. My MSc was about atopic asthma and how this is understood in Chinese medicine. I am a Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner. I have a Diploma of Chinese Herbal Medicine from the Northern College of Acupuncture and Middlesex University (2014).
I have done various courses in Japanese Acupuncture, Qi Gong and Tai Chi, Korean Hand Therapy, Korean Auricular Therapy, Reproductive Acupuncture and Reiki Seichem to level 3. I practice in Sutton Bonington near Loughborough and also in Beeston, Nottingham.

I am delighted to announce a new Friday satellite clinic, Brierley Therapies acupuncture, which has recently been opened by my fellow qualified and accredited acupuncturist Sarah Gunn B.Sc(Hons)., M.Sc., MBAcC.
Sarah and I are working together to ensure Beeston has increased acupuncture availability across the week.
Sarah is looking forward to meeting new and existing patients who require treatment on Fridays in Beeston.
