Sam Howard BSc (Hons), Lic. Ac., MBAcC, FEA

I am a qualified Acupuncturist and a fully certified member of the British Acupuncture Council. My treatments incorporate Five Elements, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Stems & Branches.

I am available to treat all kinds of physical and emotional conditions. I am a great listener and aim to help my patients live full and healthy lifestyles. My approach is to work with my patients to enable them to reach a state of internal equilibrium so that their body can continue to self-heal. I am influenced by a holistic approach to healing: I believe that the mind, body and spirit all play a part in a person’s health and happiness.

I worked as a beauty and massage therapist, having gained the International Health and Beauty Council (IHBC) 3-year Diploma when I was inspired to study Chinese acupuncture after receiving successful long-term treatment. This sparked my interest in a deeper understanding and knowledge of the subject – the connections between my earlier massage training and Chinese medicine fascinated me. The overall feeling of well-being after receiving acupuncture treatment was something I wanted to share and offer to other people.

I graduated with a BSc (Hons) Acupuncture, Lic. Ac., MBAcC, FEA qualification following a 5-year study course at the International College of Oriental Medicine (ICOM), founded by Dr Van Buren in 1972 and affiliated with the University of Greenwich.

I have also completed a post-graduate training course for Facial Enhancement Acupuncture as an extension of traditional acupuncture. This treatment works simultaneously to optimise health and enhance your skin’s appearance.

If you would like to discuss acupuncture treatment before booking an appointment, please do not hesitate to contact me.


I have seen Sam Howard for acupuncture treatments for some months, over which time I have had eight acupuncture treatments. From the beginning, I found her very professional in every way. Taking my pulses, cleanliness, hygiene, pleasant, kind and in a very informative manner when I have had any questions, and I would have no doubt in recommending Sam for acupuncture treatments to anyone attending the clinic. I also have looked on her as a very dear friend.” C.T.

I saw Sam and had a fantastic treatment. I came in recovering from a chest infection and sinusitis and was exhausted after a course of antibiotics. I went out feeling so relaxed and energised. Thank you so much for such a lovely treatment.” T.A.

Sam was very professional and thorough in taking my case & was skillful in inserting & withdrawing the needles without pain. Her whole approach to everything was excellent. Thank you Sam.” K.D.

I wanted to thank you Sam, for my treatment yesterday, I slept properly for the first time in weeks and woke up with a lot less pain and more movement in my back. I am so thankful and hope to return to work next week. I have recommended you to my sister and she has booked an appointment with you.” J.S.
