Sophie Robinson BSc Hons, (Lic. Ac., MBACC):
Acupuncture & Remedial Massage Therapist
My name is Sophie Robinson (they/she). I am a queer white acupuncturist and remedial massage therapist working at HQ Therapy Rooms in Haggerston, Hackney, London E8. My practice is LGBTQ+ affirmative, body-positive, and consent-led.
Acupuncture is an ancient East Asian medical approach to healing, viewing each person as a whole, unique person rather than a list of ailments. As well as being valuable at treating existing issues, the restorative nature of acupuncture can help establish a more resilient body.
A typical acupuncture treatment consists of an initial consultation, followed by a number of diagnostic techniques to better understand your individual needs. After this, very fine sterile single-use needles will be inserted at specific acupuncture points on the body. These points are needled to influence the free flow of qi (vital energy) and nourish the Xue (Blood). For a more detailed account of what to expect please see my website.
People seek acupuncture for support with a number of health issues such as;
- Pain management
- Musculoskeletal issues
- Digestive problems
- Mental health
- Menstrual and menopausal health.
- Scar healing
Please feel free to email me at [email protected] to see how acupuncture can help you.
My acupuncture style incorporates five elements theory, TCM and Stems and Branches. You can learn more about these through my website.
As a massage therapist, I incorporate sports and remedial massage, soft tissue therapy, deep tissue therapy and myofascial release into my treatments. My style is both relaxing and restorative with the capacity to go deep to release knots and areas of tension. My treatments are collaborative working with your needs to ensure you get the most out of your treatment.
I strive to create a safe and supportive space for all my patients. My practice is trauma-informed and consent led, meaning I will talk you through the process, giving you the opportunity to voice needs and make adjustments that are right for you.
I am committed to ensuring that the barriers faced by LGBTQ+ people in healthcare do not factor into my work. I am also aware of the power I hold as a white Western practitioner of an East Asian medical practice. I talk about all of this more on my website as I educate myself on this more and I am always open to feedback and hearing the individual needs of my patients.
