Jocelyn Dudley-Smith

Jocelyn Dudley-Smith BSc Lic Ac MBAcC

Five Element & Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncturist

Jocelyn qualified as a Traditional Acupuncturist in 2012, gaining a BSc Honours degree in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine from Kingston University. She received her Licentiate to Practice Acupuncture (Lic Ac) after four years of study at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading, one of the largest acupuncture training colleges in Europe.

She practises the gentle, yet profound style of Five Element acupuncture, integrated with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) as practised in modern China today. Jocelyn is also a Reiki Master, and when appropriate, likes to incorporate this and other modalities, such as cupping, guasha, acupressure, moxa and tuina massage into her treatments. She prides herself on creating relaxing treatments for her patients, whilst upholding the highest standards of hygiene and safety.

Traditional Acupuncture is a complete and comprehensive system of healthcare which sees all pain and illness as signs that the body is out of balance, and aims to restore equilibrium - physically, mentally and emotionally. Jocelyn is trained to use subtle diagnostic techniques such as pulse and tongue observation, which, together with a detailed consultation, enable her to create a treatment plan based on the individual rather than on their symptoms. This means that two people with the same western diagnosis may receive different acupuncture treatments. Ultra-fine, sterile, single-use needles are then gently inserted into specific acupuncture points in order to re-establish the natural balance of the body.

Jocelyn has been involved in therapeutic work for the past 20 years. Prior to becoming a Traditional Acupuncturist, she was a registered clinical hypnotherapist. She is also qualified in Swedish, Holistic, Hot Stone and Indian Head massage, as well as other complementary therapies.

Jocelyn undergoes continual professional development, and has achieved post graduate qualifications which include specialist acupuncture in fertility, dermatology, cosmetic facial rejuvenation (with or without acupuncture needles), and geriatrics. She is a member of The British Acupuncture Council, Cosmetic Acupuncture UK, as well as the Acupuncture Childbirth Trust. She is licensed to practice acupuncture by Windsor & Maidenhead Borough Council.

Paula Marriott

Paula Marriott BWY Dip. RYT®

Mindful Hatha Flow Yoga

My interest in the benefits of Yoga spans more than three decades. Research into alternative and complementary therapies for my sister’s book ‘A Cancer Companion’ as well as my own studies and practice, reinforced my belief that Yoga offers a unique holistic approach to body, mind and spirit providing us with many tools which may help us to cope better with the challenges of daily life. Personally I have experienced the benefits of yoga in areas of stress and tension release, increased flexibility, relief from back pain and weight control.

I was fortunate to do my training for the Yoga Alliance and British Wheel of Yoga qualifications with Dr. Elena Voyce, a former forensic physician and advanced Yoga and Pilates instructor. Fascinated by our anatomy and physiology, I have since been inspired by tutors Peter and Sabine Blackaby, Gary Carter and Monica Voss and now tend to teach yoga based on movements that our evolution has determined come most naturally to our bodies and those we need to maintain to live our lives in the fullest sense.

In my classes I aim to encourage an attitude of self-nuture where we work within a comfortable range so the movements made can feed back positively to the nervous system. With focus on our alignment, linking movement with the breath to encourage physical and emotional balance, wherever possible my intention is to create a flowing sequence. I like to think that when we practise yoga regularly we might eventually glimpse a state of ‘effortless effort’ where we move without bringing any additional tension to our intended actions... and as a bi-product perhaps we can start to enjoy the benefits of this away from the mat as well.

A typical class will include some relaxation, meditation and the practice of breathing techniques to activate the body’s relaxation response which can bring a cascade of benefits to the body.

As well as group classes which are suitable for beginners to more experienced students I also teach tailored one to one classes. I am delighted to be a member of the team at the Clinic and look forward very much to seeing you here. For further information or to book your space and mat please contact me.
