Emma Mango Acupuncturist

Emma's Story

Hi, I'm Emma Mango!

I've been performing traditional Chinese acupuncture since graduating from the University of Lincoln with a BSc Hons degree in Acupuncture in 2012 after 3 years of full-time study. I've helped people with everything from back pain and sciatica to infertility and depression.

My interest in acupuncture began after developing Meniere's disease when I was a teenager. Meniere's is a chronic condition affecting the inner ear, symptoms include vertigo, tinnitus, nausea, and eventually... Permanent deafness.

Permanent deafness being about as unappealing as it can get for a teenager, we sought out every treatment possible. At the time, my aunt was a physiotherapist and recommended I go to see her acupuncturist. Having no idea what acupuncture was, I was willing to try anything, and we booked in with an amazing and highly qualified TCM doctor called Ying Liu.

After several weekly sessions of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine treatment, my symptoms began to improve. It wasn't a linear improvement, as some weeks were better than others, but still, I regained my appetite, got back to a healthy weight, slept better, had way more energy, and my dizzy episodes got fewer and further between.

So, long story short, I'm not deaf, I completely recovered and haven't had any episodes since. My experience inspired me to help others who suffer the same - with any issue that isn't improving with conventional medicine.

My story is meant to help you see how much this means to me, and how seriously I take your care. Acupuncture isn't a cure-all but it does work for lots of people, especially alongside other types of therapy. I also understand the stigma around acupuncture, because there is a lot of faux science stuff out there, unfortunately.

What I will say is that there is real and tangible science behind acupuncture and the evidence is always growing.

If you're still not convinced, I'm happy to answer any questions you might have, just drop me an email, find me on social media, or give me a call. I've also answered all the most common acupuncture FAQs here.

Hope to hear from you soon!
