Helping adults and adolescents, I use traditional five element acupuncture to treat physical, mental and emotional health conditions by restoring balance and harmony of mind, body and spirit.

About me

Before training as an Acupuncturist I trained in Psychology and I worked within the NHS as a tutor and support worker teaching recovery skills to those living with enduring mental health difficulties.

I found myself drawn towards Traditional Acupuncture after finding the holistic view of an individual refreshing in comparison to western medicine. It led me to The Acupuncture Academy in Leamington Spa and in 2019, I graduated with a Professional Licentiate in Acupuncture which is a degree equivalent training. I qualified with Merit and was highly commended for my clinical skills. My training was extensive and covered all aspects of Chinese Medicine and acupuncture theory, with a focus on the Five Element approach.

I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council and adhere to the Council’s Codes of Safe Practice and Professional conduct.

What I offer

Classical Chinese acupuncture

I qualified in Five Element Acupuncture which has its grounding in classical acupuncture and is largely based on J. R Worsleys work in the UK since the 1960s. As a post graduate, I have expanded my learning into French Vietnamese Acupuncture. It uses a more developed understanding of the five elements and classical Chinese medicine because the French were introduced to Chinese medicine in the 16th century and were the first country to use acupuncture in the West.

Acupuncture’s understanding of people is that our individual and unique makeup embodies our strengths in our physical body and mentally our personality. But also our weaknesses that can cause imbalance in mind, body and spirit.

Based on Classical belief, acupuncturists are trained to use subtle diagnostic techniques that have been developed and refined for centuries. The focus is upon the individual, not their illness – all the symptoms are seen in relation to each other and as sign posts to the deeper root of disharmony.

Many people report finding acupuncture to be helpful in treating specific conditions or in helping a sense of well-being. Some people find they can cope with life better. In the modern world our symptoms are often very physical in nature,  the imbalance needs to be treated at the very essence of a person, to allow the body to heal. Each patient is unique; two people with the same western diagnosis may well receive different acupuncture treatments. Because the root cause maybe very different.

Acupuncture treatment uses fine needles to access the meridian pathways that should flow harmoniously throughout the body. The needles are used to unblock these pathways and reinstate harmony. There are at least 365 acupuncture points, all over the body, although I will mostly use your lower arms and legs, but I can go on your torso and head too. I recommend loose clothing for practical reasons.

Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese medicine technique that involves the use of a hot stick or cone of compressed mugwort. This works with the acupuncture needles in facilitating the healing process of the body.

This can be used with or without body acupuncture and I will take into consideration this when assessing you and is an option if for any reason you may struggle to remove clothing.
