Welcome to Clarity Acupuncture

Any time is a great time for acupuncture!

'In the Spring, a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love' according to Alfred Lord Tennyson. And Springtime is a wonderful time for acupuncture fertility treatments whether it is to support natural conception or for anyone undergoing IVF or other forms of assisted conception. It is also an excellent time for energy boosting acupuncture after a long, dark, dreary Winter, especially if you are enduring the long term effects of Winter viruses.


We specialise in acupuncture for fertility (both natural and assisted/IVF), women's health (menopause/periods/gynae issues) and mental health problems but we treat a wide range of symptoms and conditions - give us a call to see how we can help you.

We use a gentle needle technique and most clients find their treatments to be pleasant and relaxing. In fact, some people actually fall asleep. The needles we use are tiny in comparison to those used in western medicine and it's possible to get about 20 acupuncture needles into the hole at the end of a hypodermic needle!


Our Clinic is within easy reach of Cleckheaton, Mirfield, Wyke, Brighouse, Birstall, Batley and Dewsbury

About Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a tried and tested system of healthcare devised by the Chinese and other eastern cultures. It is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine principles (TCM) that have been developed, researched and refined for over 2,000 years.


Acupuncture works to maintain the body’s equilibrium by focusing on all aspects of well being: physical, mental and emotional. According to traditional Chinese philosophy, our health is dependent on the body’s motivating energy moving in a smooth and balanced way through a series of channels beneath the skin. This energy is known as ‘qi’ (pronounced like chi or chee). If the flow of qi is disturbed and not moving correctly the body is out of balance and illness may result. During a treatment, the acupuncturist inserts ultra fine needles at chosen points along the channels of energy. The aim is to stimulate the body’s own healing response and restore its natural balance. Treatment is aimed at the root of your condition, as well as your symptoms. This approach can lead to a more permanent resolution of your problems.

What happens when I go for treatment?

You will be asked about your current symptoms, what treatment you have received, your medical history, your diet, digestive system, sleeping patterns and emotional state.

The acupuncturist is also likely to feel your pulses on both wrists, and may ask to look at your tongue. This all forms part of the diagnosis. Your acupuncturist will then discuss with you the next steps and suggest a course of treatment.

What does it feel like?

Acupuncture needles are finer than needles used for injections and blood tests. Often nothing is felt when the needle is inserted but occasionally there can be a mild sensation which is often described as a tingling or dull ache; this sensation is generally very fleeting and subsides in a matter of seconds.

Is it safe?

The results of two independent surveys published in the British Medical Journal in 2001 concluded that the risk of serious adverse reaction to acupuncture is less than 1 in 10,000. The needles used are single use, sterile and disposable. Responses to treatment can occasionally include tiredness or mild dizziness or a tiny bruise. However, all such reactions are short-lived.

How many sessions will I need?

Frequency and number of sessions depend on your individual condition. Some change is usually felt after three to five treatments, although occasionally only one or two treatments are required. Some patients need treatment over several months or longer for chronic conditions. Others have a periodic treatment simply to maintain good health. We'll usually see you weekly at first but we'll discuss frequency with you and tailor it to your condition and your personal circumstances.

Success Stories

Our Team

Caroline Pearson, Professional Acupuncturist, BSc (Hons) Acupuncture, MBAcC

I graduated from Leeds Metropolitan University in 2012 after studying acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine for 5 years. Since then I've completed post-graduate training in a number of areas including IVF support, natural fertility support and obstetrics/pregnancy support. As a professional acupuncturist registered with the British Acupuncture Council I complete a minimum of 30 hours of Continuing Professional Development each year,


Just prior to the pandemic I was fortunate to go on a study trip to Japan which has further influenced my treatments - they are now more gentle than ever!


I treat a wide range of conditions every day and I enjoy the challenge of not knowing what each day will bring.

I qualified with a BSc (Hons) Acupuncture in 2016 after studying for 3 years at the Northern College of Acupuncture. My interest in acupuncture began after several failed fertility treatments. I started to have acupuncture alongside IVF treatment and found it supported me both emotionally and physically in a way I'd never experienced before. I'm now the proud mum of twin girls.


I have a particular interest in emotional and mental wellbeing and how the body and mind affect each other and interconnect.


Prior to acupuncture I worked in both the mental health and refugee sectors, helping me to develop a deep understanding of human resilience and our ability to heal.
