Qualifications in acupuncture

Now that we’ve met Maisie Hill let’s get to know her even better. She certainly wants to tell people on the internet all about herself.

Chapter one: she had horrible period pain for 15 years, which is not something I would wish on anyone. Except Donald Trump.

Chapter two: she became fabulous.

At the time I was managing a rock bar in Soho and trying to find my path in life (having previously experimented with tattooing, music merchandise, and working in a parrot store in New York), so when I found the perfect combination of therapies that finally dealt with my period pain once and for all, I was inspired to train as a health practitioner.

What’s a health practitioner? How is it different from a doctor or nurse?

She says she’s been “working in reproductive and hormonal health” for 15 years. Again I don’t know what that means. I suspect the vagueness is deliberate.

My qualifications include:

  • BSc Chinese Medicine Acupuncture which included a semester in the neurology department of a Chinese hospital.
  • Diplomas in Life Coaching, Reflexology, Aromatherapy, Massage, and the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy (ATMAT).
  • Post-graduate diploma in Paediatric Acupuncture.

Ah, so no qualifications at all then. A new agey quack.


I’m an all round fantastic person.

And a person who wants to hire a part-time assistant to do the full time jobs of 3 or 4 people. Much fantastic.
