I have over 20 years of experience teaching and practising Oriental Medicine and acupuncture. I trained at the British School of Shiatsu-Do and have since acted as Co-Principal at the College of Auricular Acupuncture; Chair at the Microsystems Acupuncture Society; and founding member of the Microsystems Acupuncture Regulatory Working Group.
As one of the most widely used alternative medical practices in the world, acupuncture can treat a number of conditions ranging from allergies to muscle pain. By penetrating the skin with small needles to stimulate nerve endings in specific points on the body, acupuncture can relieve a wide variety of health conditions.
For me, treatment is a journey that can occur ‘miraculously’ quickly and at other times appear to be more of a marathon. It is this understanding that forms the basis of my holistic approach to treatment.
I have been teaching Oriental Medicine and practising acupuncture for over 20 years. I genuinely care about my patients and work with this holistic approach to get to the root cause of my patients presenting condition as opposed to just relieving symptoms. Treatment is a journey, sometimes it can appear miraculously quick, at other times it can be a bit of a marathon rather than a sprint. It all depends on the underlying causes of dis-ease.
