My first experience of acupuncture was as a client, suffering with a chronic eye inflammation and frequent headaches. Coming from a medical family, I had tried conventional medicine before opting for acupuncture. My initial scepticism was replaced by relief at feeling better, and has led to a fascinating career.
I have practiced Chinese medicine for over 20 years. I have a great deal of experience working with women’s reproductive health and fertility, and also giving acupuncture as a support during IVF and other ART procedures. I find that Chinese medicine can make a profound difference to specific health issues, as well as overall health and wellbeing.
I believe that acupuncture is a great option for the treatment of chronic (long-term) muscle and joint pain and stiffness. I also use massage therapy as part of my acupuncture practice. I have studied western and Chinese massage, and for a few years I taught on the Swedish massage module at the University of Westminster.
What I appreciate about acupuncture is the versatility and elegance it offers for helping to balance both physical and psychological health. Although an ancient medicine, it feels modern. I find that clients often leave their initial session relieved to hear that seemingly unrelated symptoms are part a pattern long recognised by Chinese medicine.
Five years ago I completed a Masters degree in psychotherapy. I now divide my working time between acupuncture and psychotherapy. I studied Chinese herbal and use my knowledge of herbal medicine to guide the dietary advice I give my clients.
I love that acupuncture is a truly holistic medicine where the treatments are adapted to the individual and their needs. I enjoy meeting different people and working with them to create an individualised treatment to best suit their requirements. My treatments incorporate acupuncture, holistic massage and Chinese dietary therapy.
I achieved a first-class honours degree in Chinese medicine from the University of Westminster. I am a full member of the British Acupuncture Council and a qualified massage therapist.
To nurture my learning I regularly attend continual professional development courses and events. This ensures I keep up with the latest research advancements and I consistently develop my skill set, in order to provide the best possible treatment for my patients.
I am a firm believer in integrative healthcare and I welcome collaboration between different healthcare providers. This stems from my clinical experience within an NHS chronic pain clinic where I witnessed first-hand the benefits of combining acupuncture alongside more conventional treatment approaches.
I discovered acupuncture by experiencing its powerful effects first-hand, when I visited an acupuncturist feeling low and out of sorts. Such were the results on my overall health and wellbeing that I decided to retrain and study to become an acupuncture practitioner, so that I could help others to experience the benefits.
I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council and graduate of the renowned College of Integrated Chinese Medicine, and am committed to helping each individual achieve their potential in mental, physical and emotional health. I practice an integrated style of Five Element Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, as I believe that combining the two systems tackles both the symptoms and the root cause of the concern, enabling the body to truly rebalance and repair itself.
I have a particular interest in pain relief, fertility and stress management and have completed further graduate study in fertility acupuncture, IVF, gynaecology, cosmetic acupuncture and acupuncture for emotional wellbeing. I believe that the mental strain of today’s hectic and often stressful lifestyles can often contribute to health issues and I enjoy working with clients to reduce the harmful effects of stress, bringing about balance and a renewed sense of vitality.
I am extremely passionate about health and about maximising the human body’s remarkable potential for self healing from the inside out. I strongly believe that the key to good heath lies in a preventative and holistic approach which takes into account the body as a whole, views each individual as absolutely unique, addresses the root of illness rather than just its symptoms, and in which nutrition plays an essential role.
I trained as a Nutritional Therapist and Naturopath at the College of Naturopathic Medicine and am fully registered with the British Association of Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT) and with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). I am strongly committed to my ongoing professional development, and consistently keep up to date with a fast growing field of research through regular attendance at relevant professional courses and ongoing peer exchanges and discussions.
My aim is to support people achieve their health goals through a holistic approach using food, supplements and life-style changes. I work with people with a range of conditions including autoimmune disorders, stress and fatigue, thyroid conditions and other hormonal imbalances, mental health, irritable bowel syndrome, and varied digestive dysfunctions.
I am committed to embracing and promoting health for myself and anyone else who is keen to improve their wellbeing and feel abundantly vibrant!
