Welcome to my Acupuncture practice
Sylvia Gulbenkian Sussexacupuncture - acupuncturist Pulborough, West Sussex,
British Acupuncture Council
I am an experienced acupuncturist practicing a combination of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM ) and 5 Element Acupuncture, with patients of all ages (3 months-100 years) and at all stages of life.
Having worked as a Veterinary Surgeon for a number of years, I retrained and qualified as an acupuncturist in 2002, from the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine (CICM). 
I treat a wide variety of conditions and ensure I maintain my skills and enthusiasm by regularly attending courses/conferences and reading relevant journals.
I have had a particular interest in helping patients with fertility problems and treating during pregnancy for some time; this interest increased further after experiencing the positive effects, first hand, during my own two pregnancies and I am a keen advocate of pre-birth treatments and acupressure during labour. I am a member of the Acupuncture Childbirth Team (ACT) Brighton and Sussex.

In 2017, I also completed a 2 year diploma in treating babies and children with acupuncture. The effects of treatment at a young age can help, not only with current problems, but also with problems that may affect the child for the rest of its life. 

I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC), the UK’s largest regulatory body for practitioners of traditional acupuncture. The BAcC maintains high standards of education, ethics, discipline, and practice. The aim is to ensure the health and safety of the public at all times. (www.acupuncture.org.uk)
