Many years ago I was fortunate to develop a chronic illness, I say fortunate because this life changing event lead me to me to the door of ‘alternative medicine’ and ultimately acupuncture and tui na. I have a passion for Chinese medicine and the holistic way it enables me to help people deal with their difficulties and the stresses and strains of modern living.
I started my initial training in Chinese medicine in 2008 at the London College of Traditional Acupuncture and went on to complete my degree in Acupuncture at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading. During this time I studied both Traditional Chinese Medicine and Five Element Acupuncture. Before this I taught for many years in secondary schools in East London and still retain my interest in teaching. I have worked since as an area clinical supervisor for The Acupuncture Academy and have acupuncture students observing treatments in my clinic from time to time. I also assist the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in marking students’ work as they embark on their Chinese Medicine course.
As a lifelong learner I am constantly looking to further my knowledge and expertise. I enjoy the challenge of general practice and the variety of people this brings to my door. I have thus far completed post graduate training in:
- Treatment of Infertility
- Channel Palpation and treating musckuloskeletal problems
- Master Tung acupuncture
- Dr. Tan Balance acupuncture
- Scalp acupuncture and stroke recovery
- Tui Na
I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) which ensures that you are treated following a strict code of ethics and code of practice which maintains the highest standards.
