Jenny Doolan Acupuncturist

I am currently a senior healthcare professional in the NHS (therapy radiographer treating and supporting cancer patients). I have worked at the Sunrise Centre at the Royal Cornwall Hospital since 1999 after graduating from Kingston university/the Royal Marsden hospital and after working in Glasgow and London hospitals.

I have been qualified as a Traditional Chinese Medicine TCM) acupuncturist for over 20 years. I have practiced acupuncture in NHS and private healthcare settings across mid Cornwall and have a wealth of experience using acupuncture to support clients with a variety of health and wellbeing issues. I previously ran an acupuncture service at the outpatient Cancer unit at RCHT as part of a research project and had the work published in a peer reviewed journal.

My practice, Zest South West Acupuncture aims to provide sustainable, holistic, client focused acupuncture treatments that promotes physical and emotional health and wellness. My approach is holistic and client focused and combines Traditional acupuncture and the evidence base of western medicine.

I am available to see clients at the Blue Lotus therapy Centre in Scorrier, Redruth and hope in the future to establish clinics at other locations in Cornwall.

For a fee I will also undertake home visits for clients who are unable to attend clinics. I can provide short notice appointments for example when a client has acute back pain.

My knowledge, skills and experience with acupuncture are in Cancer Support, anxiety and mild depression, Arthritis care, Back and other chronic pain. Migraine, Menopausal symptoms, IVF, Pregnancy and birth acupuncture as well as Cosmetic Acupuncture.

I also practice Gua Sha massage and Cupping therapy and will complete training in electro- acupuncture later this year. I am a trained detox acupuncturist and have regularly used the NADA protocol to help clients with addiction to substances such as nicotine.

I am a mum of two teenagers and enjoy walking and cold-water swims with the Bluetits swimming group in Perranporth! I love gig rowing and walking my boxer dog Frank as well as touring in my campervan with my partner.

I intend to minimise plastic use and waste in my business.
