​Hello, I am Eilidh Snape, founder of Points Of Health in York. I am a licensed acupuncturist and member of the British Acupuncture Council and adhere to the highest standard of care and professional conduct, so you can rest assured you are in safe hands.


I grew up in the Orkney Islands in the north of Scotland, but spent much of my childhood in New Zealand where I found acupuncture to be used along side conventional medicine with fantastic results. After breaking my ribs in a bad horse riding accident, I turned to acupuncture and was back playing tennis whithin 3 weeks! This lead to a facintion with the therapy and I felt that it had to be shared to help more people. I then spent 3 years training at the Northern College of Acupuncture in York, where I now live.





"I have recieved treatment for IBS and anxiety for several months. I find Eilidh very competent professionally and also friendly and a great listener. She is easy to talk to and has helped me to relax while I have acupuncture." Gina

I am passionate about giving people the health care that they deserve and use a multi-disaplinary approach to my treatments to ensure my patients get best results using;  

  • Acupuncture

  • Acupressure

  • Moxibustion

  • Cupping

  • Nutirion

  • Lifestyle


I taylor each treatment to fit your needs and give you time to talk, so we can get to the root of the problem. I will do a general health check, look at your tongue and feel your pulse to make sure we're not missing anything that may have gone undetected. Although acupuncture is primarily a Chinese medicine treatment, I like to draw on western views and can work along side other treatments you may be taking/recieving.  


People are often worried about the needles, (I was the first time!) so I like to make sure that all my patients are comfortable, feel in control and if they would rather I just used acupressure then that is absolutley fine! So please don't be put off from this wonderful medicine and I look forward to treating you soon!
