I studied acupuncture in The College of Integrated Chinese Medicine where I obtained Licentiate in Acupuncture and Batchelor of Science Honours Degree endorsed by Kingston University.
I am a fully insured member of The British Acupuncture Council, the largest body of professional acupuncturists in the UK, which has the highest standards of training, safe practice and professional conduct in the country.
The styles of acupuncture I practice are Traditional Five Elements, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Balance Method Acupuncture.
My inspiration for acupuncture comes from a long standing and ongoing practice of ancient form of Chinese exercises called qigong, Hua Gong style, as taught by masters Zhixing Wang and Zhendi Wu.
Being committed to continual professional development, I regularly attend post-graduate seminars. Some of the past modules include:
- acupuncture in pregnancy and obstetrics
- acupuncture for infertility and IVF
- cosmetic acupuncture
- cancer care and acupuncture
- trigger points acupuncture for myofascial pain
- advanced needling skills
- Japanese shonishin method for babies and children
- dr Tan style acupuncture (123 and global balance)
- master Tung acupuncture
I have experience of working as an acupuncturist in a clinic for alcohol and substance misuse.
I qualified as a reflexology practitioner with the The Bayly School of Reflexology and am a member of the British Reflexology Association.
Indian Head Massage is another therapy that I practice.
Each treatment is done as personally requested, or can be individually tailored according to the needs of the person, I can suggest what from my experience can bring about most effective healing and relief for specific symptoms.
