About Barefoot Medicine International

Simone Buehner (formerly Davis), owner of Barefoot Medicine, is a highly experienced acupuncturist and herbalist.  She is accredited by the British Acupuncture council and worked for them for four years as a Professional Development Lead assisting acupuncturists across Wales, Herefordshire & Shropshire with CPD and training.  She is also a Senior Associate of the Royal Society of Medicine.

Simone sees patients with a very wide variety of healthcare matters, some of which are 'known' conditions such as unexplained infertility, eczema, stress & anxiety, PTSD, musculo-skeletal pain, menopausal symptoms, children's health, side-effects of conventional medicines etc - but sometimes people come saying they 'just don't feel right', so we work together to get that person back on track.

Simone is also a nutritional therapists and always puts nutrition at the heart of any consultation advising patients how they can help themselves to heal between treatments.    Some of Simone's long-term regular patients travel over 100 miles for treatment!

All the treatments are tailored to individual patients and following the initial consultation, Simone will draw up a treatment strategy that may combine traditional and 5-element acupuncture, electro-acupuncture, herbals, heat therapy, massage and nutritional advice.  We will also agree goals for treatment that will be reviewed every five sessions to ensure you are getting what you need and are seeing results.  

Areas of special interest are cancer care in Wales and we help many patients to deal with the side effects of treatment for lung cancer,  breast cancer, testicular cancer, bowel cancer and other conditions that involve adverse side effects from chemotherapy or radiotherapy.

We are also proud to work closely with military veterans and help them deal with post-conflict mental health disorders such as PTSD, stress, nightmares, social anxiety, panic attacks etc as well as any physical pain and on-going difficulties they may have. In my experience, this is where acupuncture comes into its own yet is so little known about.

"She is totally focussed on the patient"

Treatment Received: Acupuncture Treatment
I have been treated by Simone for around 5 years. The healing really starts when she enters the room. She is totally focussed on the patient. She poses thoughtful questions to clarify any issues. She is a thorough, detailed, empathetic practitioner with a deep understanding of Chinese medicine.

Through years of on-going study and practice, she is one of the most insightful acupuncturists in the field and an absolute blessing to me.

"I always leave with a sense of well-being"

Treatment Received: Traditional Chinese Medicine Consultation
I have had treatments from this acupuncturist/herbalist over the past four years. Her manner welcoming she puts you at your ease immediately as she talks to you, taking notes and asking questions before proceeding with your treatment. I find her competent, intuitive and very knowledgeable about her craft. I always leave with a sense of well-being. She helped with my recovery from open-heart surgery.

My experience was excellent.

"I was surprised at how quickly she was able to tell me what my problems were"
5 50Reviewed 28 Sep 2018 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Traditional Chinese Medicine Consultation
I have been having treatment for about 6 months to tackle my endometriosis pain. Simone has worked her magic and along with some Chinese herbs I have been pain-free.

I would definitely recommend Barefoot Medicines. Simone makes you feel very relaxed. I was surprised at how quickly she was able to tell me what my problems were and how my symptoms disappeared with regular appointments.

"Really made a key difference to me, not just to the back pain but to my overall well being"
5 50Reviewed 28 Sep 2018 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Traditional Chinese Medicine Consultation,Massage,Acupuncture Treatment
I had recurrent and long-term lower back pain issues. I have seen osteopaths and physiotherapists for this, they did help, but the issue kept coming back.

Simone offered a tailored treatment of acupuncture, massage and Chinese Medicine (Herbs) that really made a key difference to me, not just to the back pain but to my overall well being.

Lovely location and serene surroundings. Stripped back pine flooring and a roaring fire in the stove, what's not to like? Easy to reach by public transport (Dinas Powys train station is 10-15 minutes walk away).
