I can’t speak highly enough of Jean Hailes for Women’s Health. A national not-for-profit organisation dedicated to improving the health of women, they are an incredibly effective force to be reckoned with and have a huge internet presence. It’s been a pleasure to work with the dynamic team behind the scenes. The latest magazine features acupuncture and a brief blurb about the Acupause study. The magazine is free to download and always has yummy recipes.
