Claire Ridout

Acupuncture, Naturopathy and Iridology

Claire has been passionate about natural health for many years and is a qualified Acupuncturist, Naturopath and Iridologist. Her training was undertaken at the College of Naturopathic Medicine in London and she is also a member of the British Acupuncture Council.

Following the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Claire believes in treating the mind, body and spirit as a whole. By treating each person as an individual, rather than focusing on the illness, she feels it is possible to promote a healthy body and mind.

Acupuncture may benefit conditions which include; sciatica, muscle and joint pain, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, anxiety, depression, menstrual issues, wellness during pregnancy, infertility, digestive issues, hypertension, acne, hayfever, insomnia and many more.

Claire uses both traditional and modern TCM techniques which include acupuncture, moxibustion, cupping, electro acupuncture and gua sha.

Her naturopathy training includes; Bach Flowers, tissue salts, nutrition, homeopathy and herbs. She feels a special affinity with Bach Flowers and tissue salts and uses them in conjuction with acupuncture regulary.

As an Iridologist, Claire finds the study of the iris fascinating. Used as a diagnostic tool, it can show constitutional strengths and weakness, generic predispositions and an overall state of health. Being able to access this knowledge about ourselves truly empowers us to take the best care of our health.

Her enthusiasm for good health is apparent and she is constantly learning and developing herself as a practitioner. Claire and her family have recently moved to Ringwood from London and she is very excited about starting this new chapter in her life.
