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 spent several years practicing in various Manhattan and Brooklyn locations, which included private clinics, corporate environments, and low- income health facilities. I have completed further studies in Women’s Health, Labor induction and support, Trauma Training through Acupuncture Without Borders, and Reiki I, II, III which I believe enhances my treatments. I am particularly interested in the mind-body connection and how stress and emotions manifest in the body. I have experience supporting clients with chronic pain, fertility and hormonal concerns, IVF support, anxiety disorders, addictions, and musculo-skeletal recovery. My acupuncture sessions include subtle diagnostic techniques to determine the treatment. I believe that all healing should be considered holistically and I aim to provide a balance of support, nourishment, empowerment and practicality. I encourage my clients to explore their own possible blocks to healing and to consider how we can work together to increase the benefits of the treatments.
I love being able to apply my expertise to help people whatever their situation. For some conditions, Chinese herbs may be of benefit alongside acupuncture or indeed as a stand-alone therapy. There are many aspects to acupuncture treatments and as such interaction between client and practitioner is pivotal. Do contact me to see if I am the right practitioner for you and to discuss how acupuncture and Chinese herbs may be of benefit.
It is very rewarding now treating the grown-up children of patients who initially came to me for help with fertility issues, and I often act as the first port of call for the whole families health issues. Through teaching and supervising Master’s level Chinese medicine students alongside reflective practice I ensure that I continue learning and continue to be inspired by what Chinese medicine can do.
