The Beacon Clinic is a complementary health centre in the West Midlands, founded by Drs Martin and Sue Allbright. Both Martin and Sue have a background in the NHS and conventional medicine, having both worked in hospital medicine and General practice.
Martin recognised the benefits of complementary medicine in the 1970's and started to train in classical acupuncture in 1982. He later set up the Clinic of Classical Acupuncture in Malvern and was later joined in the practice by Sue. They expanded into the Beacon Clinic in 2002 with the intent of developing a centre of excellence for a range of complementary therapies. They aim at an integrated approach using some of the best aspects of complementary medicine to help you towards better health and improved well being.
Drs Allbright have brought together a team of some of the finest specialist therapists, (several of whom are teachers in their own profession) who are dedicated to offering the highest standard of individualised holistic health care for you, in a warm, caring and professional manner. Practitioners work collaboratively with each other, combining their different skills, when this is in the best interests and with the agreement of the client.
The team provide this care in comfortable surroundings, which consist of a suite of five consulting rooms. They also have a fully equipped postgraduate meeting room, which is used for ongoing professional development. All the facilities are on the ground floor and wheel chair accessible.

The Beacon Clinic as a centre for complementary medicine
Natural health therapies support the healing process of ailments and health problems and are suitable for all ages. The assessment and treatments of natural medicine do not attempt to replace your G.P. services. We see our work as complementary to that offered by conventional medicine, recognising that no single system of medicine has the answer to every health problem. We aim to work collaboratively when appropriate; hence we use the term 'complementary' therapies rather than 'alternative' therapies.

Counselling is when a counsellor sees a client in a confidential arrangement to explore a problem the client is experiencing. It is always at the request of the client as no one can properly be 'sent' for counselling.

Nutrition. Nutrition encompasses the use of carefully compiled individual recommendations for diet, lifestyle and nutritional supplements in order to alleviate or prevent ailments and promote optimal health.
