My journey as a Therapist
My name is Lina Doyle and my therapist journey started in 2004 when I qualified as a soft tissue massage therapist. Ever since I was little, I was interested in massages and would be the first to offer if my family ever needed one. My thirst for knowledge stuck with me and I decided to study Chinese medicine in order to help expand my understanding of the body and how to help it.
My journey as a Therapist
I qualified as a soft tissue massage therapist in 2004. In 2010 I completed my degree in Acupuncture from Kingston University gaining a bachelors degree. I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) and as such, I am bound by strict Codes of Safe Practice, Professional Conduct and Disciplinary Procedures. These Codes ensure that patients are offered the highest standards of professional care during their acupuncture treatment.
In 2011 I became a resident acupuncturist on board Royal Caribbean cruises where I helped thousands of people over the course of 3 years. Having only one to two weeks with my patients meant that I had to produce results from the first treatment and I had to show my patients what acupuncture can achieve in a short space of time. This really changed the way I practice and my approach to treatments, and I continue this ethos in my practice today.

Lina treated me and within first acupuncture session I felt a massive relieve in pain and head pressure.
Lina is an amazing therapist and I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a holistic way of treating any health concerns. I came to her with neck and shoulder pains and major sleep issues and headaches. All those symptoms have made me feel tired and offected my every day life. I am sleeping much better and feeling much more like myself. Big thank you Lina.
Thanks Lina great acupuncture and massage.
The best acupuncture and massage session I had in my life! (And I had many all over the world)
I was suffering from daily migraines, which was affecting my work, health and personal life. With each session the migraines started to reduce, and I’m finally migraine free and living my life normally again. I’m very thankful for these sessions.
The acupuncture to my legs and hands miraculously made the neck more mobile.
I have had several very beneficial treatments from Lina combining massage and acupuncture, perfect for my recurrent lower back and shoulder pain. But what prompted me to post a review was how she came to my aid at short notice after I had a fall which left me with a whiplash type injury to my neck and the other shoulder. Through massage she made the whole area freer and so much more comfortable that I could even get back to playing sport. Thanks Lina!
