I first came to Chinese Medicine as I’m interested in modes of healing that don’t involve strong interventions or pharmaceutical drugs. I recognise the amazing advances and achievements of western medicine however I also believe it does not always have the answer to everything. I had a personal experience of this when receiving treatment which spurred me to want to become a practitioner.
I studied my BSC in Acupuncture at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine. The training there is unique to other colleges as it teaches both 5 Element Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) as an ‘integrated’ system. By incorporating both schools of acupuncture I am able to provide a comprehensive treatment tailored to each individual’s needs.
Currently I am training in Tuina, Chinese energetic massage, which is believed to be the oldest system of bodywork. Tuina targets specific parts of the body to remove blockages and bring Qi to the area. I look forward to deepening my knowledge of the body and bring this new discipline into my practice.
Outside of this clinic I volunteer as an Acupuncturist at St Josephs Hospice with the Neurological Support group.
I want to make acupuncture accessible to all and am happy to offer concession prices to those that need it, please don’t hesitate to get in touch and discuss this.
