Lilla has been a TCM practitioner in Cumbria for over 17 years.

Lilla gained a doctorate in cancer research in 1989 and was involved in post doctoral research in Britain, United States and Japan. In Japan Lilla found acupuncture to be widely used in mainstream medicine and began an interest in Traditional Chinese Medicine. This led to 7 years of training in acupuncture and Chinese herbs.

She studied for 3 years at the Northern College of Acupuncture in York and 4 years with Prof. Shulan Tang at Shizhen College in Manchester. She helped to establish the first MSc course in acupuncture in the UK, and is a very well respected practitioner who is known to get good results. Lilla is a member of the British Acupuncture Council, and is also a Zita West Affiliated Acupuncturist, ensuring a high professional standard.

She runs The Little Green Clinic, a busy clinic at 19 Market Street in Ulverston, Cumbria.

In her spare time, Lilla can be found growing organic vegetables, climbing hills, surfing or generally enjoying nature.

Recommendations from patients

After suffering increasing pain and discomfort from peripheral neuropathy in feet and lower legs I visited Dr Lillia Cooper earlier in the year for acupuncture.  After several treatments and taking her advise to wear gel toe separators every day for a couple of hours I am extremely pleased that I am experiencing an 80/85% improvement in the condition.
