Jo Vessey


Jo our acupuncturist trained at the University of Westminster in London graduating in 1999 with a BSc in Traditional Chinese medicine: Acupuncture. After qualifying she returned to Guernsey and has been practising at Queens Road Medical Practice for the last 16 years and at Avenue Clinic since it opened 5 years ago.

Jo takes a holistic approach in her treatment and focuses on the individual rather than the illness, with the aim to improve the person’s overall wellbeing. Acupuncture is an ancient therapy based on the theory that the body depends on vital energy, known as qi, being in balance. The correct manipulation of qi can treat a range of emotional and physical conditions, such as musculo-skeletal, respiratory and circulatory, gastrointestinal, gynaecological, neurological and stress-related disorders and the relief of pain and allergies.

Jo is a member of the British Acupuncture Council and you can find more information on their website www.acupuncture.org.uk or email jo@avenueclinic.co.uk

Jo Practises


Acupuncture is a system of healing which focuses on improving the overall wellbeing of the patient. According to Traditional Chinese philosophy our health is dependent on the body's motivating energy (qi) moving in a smooth and balanced way through a series of channels beneath the skin. It is when this becomes unbalanced that illness may result and pain may occur. > Find out more
