I am trained in both traditional and scientific acupuncture, as well as Chinese herbal medicine and paediatric tuina, a non-needle therapy for treating babies and children under the age of 12. Having graduated in 2000 from the University of Westminster with a BSc (Hons) Traditional Chinese Medicine: Acupuncture, I went on to complete my Postgraduate Diploma in Chinese herbal medicine at the university.
I have undertaken further training with the British Medical Acupuncture Society (BMAS) and am an academic associate of that body. I am also a member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC), the Register of Chinese Herbal Medicine (RCHM) and the International Society of Ethnopharmacology (ISE). My degree training also included nutritional and physical therapies, which has allowed me to develop an integrated approach to meeting my patients’ needs.
I am passionate about uncovering the science that underpins traditional therapies and making them relevant to the needs of the people who seek my help today.
