Vanessa Rubio (Lic.Ac MBAcC) is a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) acupuncturist with experience in helping clients with a wide range of physical and emotional conditions such as stress, anxiety, insomnia, menopausal symptoms, menstrual disorders, IBS, allergies, pain, musculoskeletal issues, migraines, headaches and skin conditions. She also offers pregnancy and post pregnancy support.

Vanessa believes that the treatment starts the moment you walk into the treatment room. She provides a safe space to discuss any concerns and be heard in a non-judgmental way. Vanessa is passionate about helping clients achieve balance and harmony in their lives through acupuncture and getting to the root cause of any issues.

Alongside acupuncture, Vanessa offers Gua sha using Kloris CBD oil to alleviate neck, shoulder and back tension. CBD stimulates the body's endocannabinoid system to promote harmony and wellbeing by calming the nervous system, easing muscle aches and boosting immunity. 'Acu Seeds' ear seeds are used as a post-treatment enhancement to support clients after they have left the treatment room. Ear seeds target sleep issues, anxiety, stress, immunity, focus, headaches, digestion and fatigue. (Please note: CBD oil and ear seeds are not suitable during pregnancy and breast feeding).

Vanessa has introduced two new facial cosmetic acupuncture treatments with Celluma LED light therapy to the Light Centre Marylebone - the Restore (50 mins) and the Deluxe (90 mins). Facial cosmetic acupuncture helps to lift, firm and tone the skin,  brighten the complexion, reduce acne and acne scarring, minimise pores, soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and reduce puffiness. LED light therapy is used while the facial needles are in place. LED light therapy is the application of specific wavelengths of light to obtain therapeutic benefits and improve cellular performance of the skin. Red light targets the dermal layer of the skin and is used to stimulate collagen production thus reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Blue light penetrates the epidermis and is used to combat bacterial skin conditions such as acne.

Vanessa studied TCM and acupuncture for three years at the renowned City College of Acupuncture in London, under the guidance of some of the UK’s leading acupuncturists. Her training involved 3,500 hours of study at degree-level and 400+ hours of clinical training. As well as graduating with a first-class honours Licentiate, Vanessa has also undertaken further post-graduate training on the menopause, pregnancy and Advanced Cosmetic Acupuncture with LED light therapy.

Vanessa is a fully insured, licensed practitioner and a member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) which guarantees high standards of training, safe practice and professional conduct. Here is the link to Vanessa's page on the British Acupuncture Council website:


Client Testimonials

“I was looking for an alternative way of dealing with insomnia. Acupuncture seemed like a natural and effective option. I visited Vanessa and her approach was perfect. She listened attentively to the symptoms and explained how the session would work. I was delighted with the difference the session had on me. That night I slept much better without the continual waking up pattern that I had become used to. Vanessa’s treatment really made a difference. She is welcoming, warm, and a genuinely lovely person who acts with a level of kindness, courtesy and professionalism that immediately puts you at ease. I can highly recommend her.” Rachel, Beauty & Lifestyle PR


“I was one of Vanessa’s first patients and her ability to listen to my needs and create a personalised session for me was amazing. She focused on all of my concerns but also on others that I didn’t even realise needed rebalancing. It was my first-time having acupuncture and I'm slightly (irrationally) scared of needles. She was gentle and understanding and made the whole experience a pleasure. I can’t wait for my next session.” Leo, Photographer


“I was fortunate enough to receive two treatments from Vanessa, both of which I came away from feeling light, balanced and relaxed. Vanessa has an incredibly warm and gentle way about her which immediately put me at ease in the treatment room, offering a space where I felt comfortable asking questions and sharing my difficulties and ailments. Vanessa's therapeutic skills, empathy and grounded-ness made me feel safe and secure and I would recommend Vanessa to anyone. I hope to see her again for another treatment soon.” Molly, Student


“Every time I have acupuncture with Vanessa, I leave floating on a cloud. The atmosphere and her warm energy alone allow me to de-stress and centre. I am extremely lucky to have found a practitioner like her who is so compassionate and professional. I would highly recommend her.” Michelle, Aesthetician


“I am new to the world of alternative medicine and therapy and I wasn’t sure what to expect when I booked a session of acupuncture and Gua sha with Vanessa. Thankfully, she put me at ease the moment I arrived and explained the whole process in a clear and detailed way. The treatments were deeply relaxing and peaceful. I left the clinic feeling noticeably better and more re-energised than before. I would definitely recommend Vanessa - I know I will be coming back soon!” Max, Computer Analyst


“Vanessa is exceptional – she has a warm and sensitive presence which is incredibly calming. She is very professional and informative and I completely trust her expertise. After I have had acupuncture with Vanessa I feel totally restored and recharged. I can recommend Vanessa 100%.” Kerry, Teacher
