Acupuncture has been practiced in eastern countries for 2,500 years. It is a traditional form of Chinese medicine based on the understanding that our body’s motivating energy force or Qi (chi) moves through a network of channels that run beneath the skin. Facial acupuncture, or revitalisation, is a non-surgical method of reducing the signs of the aging process. More than just a cosmetic procedure, it is designed to help the whole body look and feel younger.
I became interested in acupuncture when I was successfully treated with it after getting malaria in South America. I had previously travelled extensively in China and worked in Taiwan, leaning to speak Chinese while I was there.
I graduated from the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading in 1996. We were taught to combine 5 Element acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine styles of treatment to cover different techniques where one or both are more appropriate.
I enjoy working with all people but have specialized in fertility – male and female, hayfever, migraines and headaches, back pain and insomnia.
I try to create a calm and quiet atmosphere and feel it is very important to listen carefully and give clients a space where they can feel safe and supported.
