Welcome to Acupuncture South

Kim Steer and Sue Miles studied Five Element Acupuncture together at SOFEA (School of Five Element Acupuncture) in London and have been studying and working in acupuncture since 2000.

Before they were acupuncturists, Sue and Kim worked together for a Harley Street surgeon. After completing their acupuncture training they worked together at the Kite Clinic, New Bond Street, until it closed in December 2010.

Having experienced the transformative effects of Reiki, Sue and Kim studied Usui Reiki under Reiki Master Stephane Burton and are both attuned to Level 2. They often include Reiki with their Acupuncture treatments.

In 2015 Sue and Kim began their journey into Shen Dao Five Element Feng Shui and qualified as Consultants in 2016. They studied under Feng Shui Master Amravati Mitchell.

Acupuncture is an ancient system of medicine originating in China. Vital energy (Chi) flows through the body along energy pathways, called meridians. When you are in good health the flow of chi is smooth and uninterrupted, but when illness strikes this flow is disturbed.

Feng Shui

Feng Shui

Feng Shui manipulates Chi in the environment in order to enhance and increase it’s beneficial flow, rather like an acupuncturist would use needles to enhance the beneficial flow of Chi within a person.



Reiki” (ray-key) is Japanese for ‘universal life energy’, and is also a word used to describe a system of natural healing, This tradition was founded by Mikao Usui in the early 20th century and evolved as a result of his research, experience and dedication.
