About us

Eleanor & Charlotte in Anandanagar, West Bengal

The People’s Acupuncture Project are acupuncturists Eleanor, Pippa, and Tom.

The People’s Acupuncture Project was born in July 2012, shortly after founders Charlotte and Eleanor returned from West Bengal in India where they had been volunteering in a free community acupuncture clinic. Seeing how this method of healthcare transformed the community of the small rural Indian village, They felt inspired to create something similar back home.

In the years since, the team has changed and grown. Charlotte has now having a break to have a family, but Pippa Brown and Tom Hirons have joined us and brought with them incredible knowledge and experience, having worked at various other community clinics around the country.

Community multibed acupuncture is growing in the UK, and we are proud to be part of a movement that is bringing affordable accessible acupuncture to those that need it. The Association of Community and Multibed Clinics (ACMAC) is working hard to help this movement. If you know someone who would benefit from regular acupuncture, you can find a local community clinic on ACMACs website
