A few weeks ago, some of us at The Athena Network featured in an advertising spread in the NWN.
I was approached by a couple of people who asked me to write their bio pieces. After all, it's much easier for me, subjectively, to put into words the benefits they bring to their customers and also to say how wonderful they are - women can worry that what they are saying about themselves sounds like bragging! Sometimes, when you have your head down running your business and know what you do inside-out, it can be hard to write a short piece about yourself and your work.
I thought I would share here the words I wrote about Sigyta Hart, an acupuncturist. Sigyta is an exceptionally kind and knowledgeable woman who is a great listener. She has helped countless people with a range of ailments and is currently busy helping people with hay fever who don't want to rely on anti-histamines.
I can't recommend Sigyta highly enough, and thank you for working with me.
"Sigyta Hart is passionate about improving women’s health and well-being using her knowledge and experience with Chinese and Japanese acupuncture and herbal medicine.
She said: “Women tend to do everything – working, raising a family and looking after others, often at the expense of their own health. Acupuncture is a holistic treatment which helps harmonise women’s hormones and balances mind, body and energy.”
Sigyta has years of experience in acupuncture for infertility supporting women preparing for and undertaking IVF, although many conceive without embarking on the protocol and has helped with the conception of 104 babies.
She helps women of all ages with migraines, seasonal allergies, digestive problems, arthritis, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME) as well as long-term illnesses and people who feel unwell but have not been diagnosed.
She is fully qualified in traditional Chinese Medicine following training in Hong Kong in the 1980s.
Sigyta, a member and practitioner of the British Acupuncture Council and the Register of Chinese Herbal Medicine, works in Cheap Street, Newbury and Wallingford Hospital."
