Welcome to Amanda’s Acupuncture

My name is Amanda Banks and I practice Acupuncture and Naturopathy in Billericay, Essex.  My aim is to provide Acupuncture and Naturopathic advice in a caring and supportive environment.  The foundation of my Acupuncture training is Traditional Chinese Medicine which is a centuries old medicine system used to treat an individual in a holistic way incorporating mind, body and spirit.

Acupuncture involves the insertion of fine, sterile, single use needles (a fifth of a millimetre thick) being inserted into a specific pressure point around the body in order to restore health, balance and harmony.  The greater the state of  balance, the better the body can heal itself and remain immune to illness and injury.

Naturopathy is a system of alternative medicine based on the theory that diseases can be successfully treated or prevented without the use of drugs.

As qualified naturopath I use techniques such as nutrition, detoxification, Bach Flower remedies, iridology  and tissue salts to treat specific problems.
