A qualified and highly-experienced acupuncturist with 15 years’ experience, I offer treatments tailored to your needs, bringing together acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine in a holistic approach that is safe, gentle and thorough. I can also include specific dietary, lifestyle and herbal suggestions for your complete health and wellbeing, and offer natural beauty and skincare treatments from a Chinese medicine perspective.
I treat a wide range of common health conditions. My specialism is in gynaecology, fertility and IVF, and my interest in this is fuelled by my own fertility issues. I’m now a mother and am dedicated to to helping others in their quest to having a baby, and can provide holistic support along the way.
My degree is in acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine and at a postgraduate level I’ve studied with some of the world's most respected teachers; in Manchester with Professor Shulan Tang (Chinese herbal medicine) and in New York with Virginia Doran (facial rejuvenation acupuncture).
I’m a member of the Zita West network for reproductive health. I’ve also trained in various types of body therapies such as Tui na (Chinese massage) sports, deep tissue, Swedish massage, reflexology, aromatherapy and holistic facials. My approach to skincare is to offer a combination of facial acupuncture, gua sha facial massage, along with herbs and dietary advice.
Acupuncture is based on the principles of traditional Chinese medicine, dating back over 2,500 years and believed to be the world's first healthcare systems. It’s practised worldwide and is increasingly accepted by medical professionals of many disciplines. I’m privileged to be a modern exponent of that ancient art. The use of Chinese herbs is integral to that tradition and there’s a growing recognition in Europe and worldwide of their effectiveness. I maintain a wide selection of these herbs and am able to prepare a blend specifically selected to enhance your treatment outcome.
I’m a member of the British Acupuncture Council. The BAcC maintains high standards of practice to ensure the health and safety of the public at all times. If you would like to discuss treatments feel free to contact me.
