Claire Mindham

Acupuncture, Yoga, Meditation, Electrolysis

Claire acknowledges she has an eclectic skill set but, in her mind, there is a perfectly logical explanation and route to becoming ‘The Needle Yogi’.

Starting as a mature student in the 90’s, Claire chose to study Chinese Medicine at Westminster University, followed by an internship in China. Always interested in learning new skills, Claire then qualified as a 500hr British Wheel of Yoga Teacher and completed an intensive Meditation Teacher Training.

In addition to these courses Claire has studied Cosmetic Acupuncture, Mehta face massage, EFT, Reiki and Swedish Massage and, after being inspired by a colleague, decided to study electrolysis, gaining a VTCT 3 qualification.

Acupuncture: Used to treat a range of conditions from muscle aches to IBS to emotional imbalances. Very fine needles are placed in a selection of relevant points intended to soothe pain, reduce stress and anxiety and bring balance to mind and body.

Yoga: Many people think of yoga as a physical stretch class but it is so much more than that. A yoga class will involve other practices to balance the mind and body and bring about a sense of calm and wellbeing.

Electrolysis: is a proven safe way of removing unwanted hair and works by passing a small amount of heat though a fine probe to the root of the hair. Unwanted hair is a problem for many men and women and the distress it can cause is vastly underestimated.

Claire enjoys the contrast of 1:1 therapeutic acupuncture and electrolysis sessions to the vibrancy and energy of group yoga classes, always wishing to professional treatments and classes in a relaxed and supportive way.
