Faye Hopcraft

WELCOME ~ Faye is the founder of Faye Hopcraft Acupuncture. Faye understands that everyone is unique and experiences pain and illness in different ways that is why Traditional Chinese medicine is a unique medicine in itself because your treatments are individually tailoured to your specific needs. Faye will also carefully examine your underlying cause of illness so not to just treat the symptoms that are presenting in order to bring your whole body, mind and soul into equilibrium allowing your body to heal itself. Traditional Chinese Medicine is now being recognised as the "go to" natural therapy for our modern world. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine is extremely safe with minimal side effects, It is non-invasive, non-addictive and extremely effective. It is now being recognised as an evidence based medicine where many research and quality clinical trials prove its effectiveness.

Faye began her career in nursing 28 years ago and she is also a fully qualified Aromatherapist, Reflexologist and Masseuse. Faye first became involved in Traditional Chinese Medicine 14 years ago after having major surgery which left her in terrible pain and unable to walk. All Western Medical options had been exhausted so she decided to see an acupuncturist and after 10 sessions her symptoms had dramatically decreased and after 3 months she was no longer taking opioids for pain relief and was back to her old self. Faye's journey had begun and she needed to know how and why this worked and wanted to be able to help others in this way.

Faye began training at the International College of Oriental Medicine (ICOM) in East Grinstead and continued training at the City College of Acupuncture in London, which is a British Acupuncture Council Accredited school where she completed a 3-year degree level licentiate in Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine. She also specialises in auricular (ear) acupuncture, which treats alcohol and drug addictions, weight loss and pain management.

Faye is fully qualified, insured and is a member of the British Acupuncture Council and her passion is to bring ANCIENT MEDICINE to the MODERN WORLD.

Some kind words from my clients

  •  I first received Gua Sha during an acupuncture treatment for my painful neck and shoulders. Faye explained the process in full prior to the treatment and explained that Gua Sha can leave some marking on the skin for a few days afterwards. What a difference it made to my pain levels after treatment, my neck and shoulders were not as stiff and painful and it completely got rid of the headaches I was experiencing. The whole experience was relaxing and not painful. Gua Sha is the best form of massage I have ever had - Amanda K - London

  • Well what can I say about Faye Hopcraft Acupuncture, I went to see Faye with a terribly painful knee that had been going on for ages. My Doctor had told me that nothing could be done and that it was just a sign of getting old!, Faye sorted it after just 2 treatments. I now have a painful shoulder that Faye is now treating me for with very good results. The treatment is pain free and Faye always makes you feel very relaxed and comfortable. I can’t recommend her highly enough.
    Adam Brown – Selsey

  • Having, over the years, experienced more than one acupuncturist, I am so glad to have found Faye. I initially went for a long-term back problem, hip pain and  insomnia which has now all been relieved. I now visit her fortnightly as part of my general healthcare routine as she relaxes me with her friendly and confident nature and, as an 82 year old, I find her treatments enable me to stay active and positive about my health and general wellbeing. I actually fall asleep during every treatment and I never want to get off of her warmed treatment couch at the end of each session!.

  • I saw Faye for a series of acupuncture sessions earlier this year and from start to finish she was absolutely brilliant. Not only is she incredibly knowledgeable but she is deeply passionate about what she does. I felt very safe with her treating me (as someone who has a slight aversion to needles!), but at all times she was a total professional and extremely kind. She explained why she was doing things and included me in my treatment plan. She was very patient and calming, and as a result meant I got the best out of my sessions with her. As an experienced holistic therapist she also brought in all her knowledge from other areas too, which made my treatment feel whole. I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend her, and if you have any doubts about getting acupuncture, don't! You definitely wont regret seeing Faye

  • I contacted Faye after my newly acquired cat from Cyprus gave me a bite to my hand. It was at the weekend and my GP surgery was closed and I did not want to go to A&E. My hand was hot, red and swollen and very painful. Faye fitted me in last minute on a Saturday evening and I was amazed how the treatment gave me instant relief. I now have regular acupuncture and cupping therapy for other health issues that I have. Faye’s treatment room is such a lovely, relaxing place to be with dimmed lighting, music and a warming treatment couch which is so comfortable. I really look forward to my treatments and often doze off once the needles are in. I just love her calming nature.
