Welcome to the website of:
Chani Turner RM BSc (Hons) Acupuncture Lic Ac MBAcC.

I hope this website provides the information you need to have an understanding of acupuncture; and to help you make an informed choice about your treatment.


I am Chinese and I work as a traditional acupuncturist practising the integrated approach of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Five Elements Constitutional Acupuncture.

I worked at Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust for 45 years from 1971 to 2016. I started my career as a state registered nurse for 17 years before training in 1988 to become a registered midwife. I worked as a midwife for 28 years until my retirement in 2016.


In November 2002, I was sponsored by Poole Hospital Trust to do a 3+ year degree in acupuncture at The College of Integrated Chinese Medicine, Reading, part of Kinston University. I qualified with a BSc in Acupuncture with First Class Honours.

As part of my continuous professional development, I attend up-to-date training days/courses including treatment of fertility, pregnancy, Five Elements acupuncture in particular treatment of stress-related conditions and emotional illnesses, muscular skeletal workshops, and many others.

In October 2013, I had an extraordinary opportunity to join 13 acupuncturists on a study trip in acupuncture at the National Province Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Hospital in Guangzhou, China. Acupuncture is the mainstream healthcare system in Guangzhou and the National Province TCM Hospital serves approximately 2000 patients a day. I had the chance to work with some of the best professors in acupuncture and the hospital provided endless opportunities to learn many aspects of Chinese Medicine in much detail. This amazing experience inspired me immensely. I use some of the Guangzhou techniques regularly and my patients have reported many positive results of their treatments.


My clinic first opened in May 2006 to present day, 10+ years. I treat a wide range of health problems for both men and women including muscular skeletal and pain conditions.

My special interests in acupuncture include pregnancy disorders, infertility and/or acupuncture support with IVF /ICSI, menopausal or menstrual irregularities; stress or emotional related illnesses, depression, anxieties, panic attacks, insomnia, headaches, Irritable bowel syndrome; chronic illnesses such as myalgic encephalitis, fibromyalgia.

Acupuncture has few side effects and is a safe treatment to be used in pregnancy. Primarily, acupuncture is useful to treat morning sickness, hyperemesis, anxieties approaching labour and delivery, prebirth acupuncture treatment to prepare body for spontaneous labour, induction of labour, moxibustion for breech version.

I am a member of The British Acupuncture Council.
