Prior to becoming an acupuncturist, I originally trained in musical theatre and performing arts, deciding in the late nineties to move in a new direction after experiencing first hand the benefits of complementary therapies. With this desire to be involved in a more holistic and people centred environment, I initially retrained in reflexology followed by massage, reiki and pilates instruction.
To further complement these disciplines, I then studied for a degree in acupuncutre at the London College of Traditional Acupuncture and Oriental medicine (LCTA), allowing me to offer patients a more effective and integrated approach to each treatment.
I currently work with a wide range of conditions from acute to chronic aliments and have a particular interest in stress conditions as well as women's health, menopause, fertility and pregnancy. This has lead to further specialist training with some of the worlds leading practitioners.
I am also trained in auricular (ear) acupuncture which can be used as a stand alone treatment to help support addictions such as smoking, drugs, alcohol and over eating, mental health issues and stress. Or combined with body acupuncture to support the body points.
I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC), the UK's largest regulatory body for TCM practitioners and abide by their strict codes of practice and safety.
