About Laura

Laura Foster is a Bedfordshire-based acupuncturist who practices Traditional Chinese Medicine. She provides a welcoming, inclusive space for all. 


Acupuncture works to re-establish your body’s equilibrium, with each person being treated as a whole, looking not just at presenting symptoms, but also the root of a condition. Laura sees people with a wide variety of symptoms and complaints, and takes a full medical history to help build each person’s individualised care plan. 


She first had acupuncture when a musculoskeletal issue flared up during a very stressful period of her life. The improved sense of wellbeing that acupuncture promoted during this time made a profound impression on Laura, and prompted her to learn more about this ancient medicine that is growing in popularity in these modern times.


To learn more, Laura offers a free 15-minute consultation either online or over the phone, where she is happy to answer any questions you may have.

“Laura is absolutely brilliant, very knowledgeable, very kind and supportive. I came for a musculoskeletal issue. Laura’s treatments were so relaxing yet very effective. I am very pleased with the remarkable changes I have experienced. Only after a few sessions, I stopped taking painkillers and didn’t have any more treatments for 8 months. Thank you very much Laura for improving the quality of my life!”
