About Amanda Crawshaw - Acupuncture and complementary healthcare
My complementary therapy career began at Chapel Allerton Holistic Centre where I worked for ten years. In 2012, I opened my own complementary therapy multidisciplinary clinic – Balance Natural Health, in Chapel Allerton, north Leeds. My work has led me to work all over Leeds in various settings of private, corporate and charity work including Schools and Leeds Metropolitan University. I became involved with Leeds Wellbeing Centre from inception, which was a charity project that offered complementary therapies and counselling to vulnerable adults and collaborated with other charities such as PAFRAS, Solace, The Mount and the Becklin Centre. Throughout the project’s 4 year life span, I wore several hats including being an initial Consultant, Therapist and Manager.
I now currently divide my private practice between Balance Natural Health on Thursday and Fridays, and Farfield House Osteopathy Clinic in Keighley on Monday and Tuesdays.
•A bespoke service working with each individual to help them choose the best suited approach for their treatment needs.
•Acupuncture may offer support with headaches and migraine, stress, depression and anxiety, digestive issues, and arthritic pain.
•For women and couples who are trying to conceive naturally, or who may be about to start an IVF/ICSI or IUI cycle, I can offer physical and emotional support through Acupuncture.
•Acupuncture can be useful for addressing pregnancy related symptoms, such as nausea, heartburn, water retention, back pain, and pre-birth anxiety.
•Shiatsu labour pain relief workshops for couples. This encourages both to be calm and connected during labour, and promotes a natural birth which may minimise the chances of complications.
Please note I personally no longer offer Sports or Swedish massage, but my colleague Suzana Tomic works in my Leeds clinic and is my highly recommended replacement. She offers:
• Swedish (Therapeutic) Massage can warm and stretch muscle tissue, release tension and reduce ‘knots’ whilst creating a sense of wellbeing.
•Sports massage for neck, shoulder and back pain, muscle tension, sports injuries, or everyday aches and pains.

I have been in practice since 2001 and am the Director of Balance Natural Health clinic in Leeds. I aim to bring intuitive support and care to my treatments and I seek to empower my client’s awareness of their own health and wellbeing through ancient and modern bodywork techniques to suit each individual.
I have a special interest in fertility and regularly undertake post graduate training. In my free time, I enjoy being with friends, going on holiday to unusual places (when I can!) and snowboarding.
