I have been practising acupuncture and Chinese medicine continuously since 1981.
I trained in the UK at the International College of Oriental Medicine, and in China at the Nanjing University of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC), the main body regulating professional acupuncturists in the UK.
The BAcC ensures that it’s members maintain high standards of education, practice and ethics, and requires me to maintain a high standard of practice skills through continuing professional development (CPD).
I have full professional indemnity insurance.
I am a member of the Acupuncture Fertility Network (AFN), a professional body for acupuncturists supporting men and women with fertility related problems.
Although I mainly practise Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), I am well versed in many different styles of acupuncture.
I aim to provide a warm and professional environment for your treatment.
I use Chinese medicine to treat you as a whole person.
I look at your unique energy system in order to understand how it’s flow and balance may be damaged, blocked, and unbalanced.
I look for the weaknesses, the strengths, and how your system can be rebalanced, harmonised, remedied, reinvigorated.
As part of the treatment, I will suggest ways in which, depending on your condition, you can help to improve and maintain your continuing health and well-being.
