Amanda Spencer

Amanda Spencer has been involved in healthcare for her entire professional career, which started in 2002 when she graduated from University of East London with BSC(HONS) Physiotherapy. During this time she has gained experience in many areas of treatment and rehabilitation from acute sports injuries to chronic back pain. She began work in the NHS and after three years, specialised in the treatment and management of neuro-musculoskeletal conditions (those conditions involving soft tissues, nerves, joints and bones).

During her time in the NHS Amanda was responsible for running exercise groups such as back to fitness and hydrotherapy (water based exercise) and successfully treated many patients before a move into the private sector in 2008. The move was prompted by dissatisfaction with the time allowed for treatment in the NHS which often restricted treatment to fortnightly or monthly intervals which was largely ineffectual.

Since working in the private sector Amanda has expanded her expertise in treatment using acupuncture, in order to further her knowledge she has completed a post graduate diploma to enhance her proficiency in this area.

Acupuncture involves the use of single use, pre-sterilised needles to pierce the skin at acupuncture points. It stimulates the brain and spinal cord to promote natural pain-relieving chemicals such as endorphins, melatonin (promotes sleep) and serotonin (promotes wellbeing). Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a holistic approach which regards ill health as a manifestation in the body’s energy or QI (pronounced chee) where treatment is aimed at restoring balance. Amanda combines TCM principles with scientific evidence to relieve pain and enhance healing.

Amanda has maintained her registration with Health Professions Council and Professional Chartered Societies CSP (Chartered Society of Physiotherapy) and AACP (Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists).

There are many ways in which Amanda can help you. Whether a recently acquired injury, something which has appeared gradually or even small niggles that have the potential to become something more bothersome. It is always better to seek treatment sooner, problems which have been present for many months usually take much longer to treat.
