For me, the reason why acupuncture is so uniquely suited to modern life is that it encompasses a whole person’s system: the mind, body and spirit are seen as interdependent and integral to our well-being. I am constantly fascinated by the body’s self-healing potential and how our emotions have such a direct influence on our health and well-being.
It was my own personal experience that drew me to acupuncture and to eventually re-train and become a practitioner. Having suffered from chronic and debilitating migraines since my teenage years, I began having treatment and have enjoyed the benefits ever since. I see acupuncture as a natural and effective approach to keeping the body and emotions in balance and therefore staying well.
I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council and hold a first class BSc degree from the acclaimed College of Integrated Chinese Medicine (CICM) in Reading, affiliated to Kingston University. I have also completed a post graduate diploma in gynaecology, fertility and obstetrics from CICM and am qualified in Cosmetic Facial Acupuncture, Advanced Collagen Induction Techniques and LED Light Therapy having had extensive training with Acuregen Academy.
I live in north London with my three children and practise in Highgate, and from Neal’s Yard Therapy Rooms in Islington and in Covent Garden.
