The Inside Yorkshire Podcast is a podcast full of stories and tales from the people of Yorkshire. In today's episode Susan talks to Helen McQue about her experiences studying and now practising as a traditional chinese acupuncturist.
Helen has set up and now runs a busy practice in Richmond, North Yorkshire. She also devotes her time to supporting local charities, most recently the SSAFA Armed Forces charity where she demonstrated and gave taster sessions in aid of the charity.
In this episode, recorded on World Acupuncture day, she and Susan discuss the misconceptions surrounding acupuncture and talk about the benefits that can be achieved with treatment.
About the Guest:
Helen and her husband Dean, who is also an acupuncturist, travel to Nepal as volunteers supporting the Thrangu Monastery bringing healthcare to remote areas of Nepal. They give their time and expertise helping Wangchuk Rapten Lama, and his team at the monastery, treating locals who often have to walk miles to reach the medical care they need. Helen and Dean often treat up to 40 people each day whilst they are at the Thrangu Phende clinic working alongside the Tibetan monk. The clinic is within the grounds of the Thrangu Monastery in Nammo Buddha, Karve. Between visits to volunteer overseas Helen raises funds to send out to support the clinic's continuing work.
