As one of the most widely used complementary medical practices in the world, acupuncture uses fine filiform needles to stimulate specific points on the body to treat numerous conditions ranging from allergies to digestive issues, migraines to musculoskeletal pain.
I have over 20 years of experience teaching and practising Oriental Medicine. I trained with Chinese Doctors at the AcuMedic Foundation in the UK, and at the Guanganmen hospital in China. I am Co-Principal of The College of Auricular Acupuncture; Chair of the Microsystems Acupuncture Society (MAS); and am a Winston Churchill Fellow.
For me, there is no ‘one size fits all’. Each treatment is unique in that results can often occur ‘miraculously’ quickly. At other times a deeper healing needs to occur before things shift more permanently, which might require a little more time. 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.
