Sue Boardman BA(hons)MBAcC LicAc HNDSpTh STA
Clinic Owner - Sports Therapy - Traditional Acupuncture - Holistic Therapies
 
Hi, I'm Sue and I own and run Treatments.  It has been a childhood dream of mine to own my own clinic, and so I am very proud of Treatments and all of my team for making it what it is today.  After graduating from Staffordshire University with a HND in sports therapy in 1998, I went on to gain my degree in Traditional acupuncture in 2002.  Since then I have built up my client base and slowly expanded over the years.  During that time I co-founded Hands on Health, on West Street in Leek, where my business has been based until 2015.  Now due to the business needing to expand further I have decided to move and rebrand to larger premises.  Since having my children I have also studied some holistic therapies, and I really enjoy treating my patients with these.  I enjoy meeting my patients and I enjoy the variety of symptons and conditions they present with, it makes my job very interesting.  I also spend some time on reception when our receptionists' are not in.
