What is multibed acupuncture?
For the first time in the North East, Heaton Acupuncture Clinic is offering treatments within its multibed facility where we hope to provide simple, affordable and effective acupuncture treatment for up to four people at the same time. In our multibed facility a number of people are treated in the same room while protecting privacy, dignity and confidentiality. Newcastle Community Acupuncture is a registered member of the Association of Community & Multibed Clinics (ACMAC).

Professionally registered practitioners Feras Jerjis, Louise Collyer and Tam Nortley passionately believe that high quality, affordable healthcare should be accessible to all, free from financial, social or geographical barriers.
Feras Jerjis Dip Ac, MBAcC, Traditional Acupuncturist
Feras is a graduate of the Northern College of Acupuncture in York where he gained an interest in Gynaecology after spending most of his clinical placement with Mandy Metcalfe. He received initial training in Oriental Medicine from Mr Neil Thompson, one of the best established practitioners in the North of England and medical Chi Kung from Dr Bisong Guo over several years.
Feras worked at Newcastle Sports Injury Clinic for a number of years dealing with amateur and professional athletes up to Olympic level, giving him excellent grounding in treating muscular skeletal conditions. Eventually, his interest in gynaecology lead him to be known for promoting fertility, his success in helping couples have children lead him to study paediatric acupuncture with Julian Scott, thus making him one of only a handful of acupuncturists trained to treat children. His clinical expertise also includes menopausal conditions and anxiety disorders. In addition, Feras has a particular interest in some Auto Immune Syndromes.
