I graduated from the University of Salford with a BSc(Hons) in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture in 2006 and am a registered member with the Acupuncture Society. My areas of special interest are treating children and adolescents, women’s health, including problems with fertility, menstruation disorders and menopausal symptoms. I have also treated a number of physical and emotional difficulties and skin related problems such as acne.
I have undertaken postgraduate training in Tuina massage, Facial Revitalisation Acupuncture with Jamie Hedger, London and Shonishin Japanese Acupuncture with Stephen Birch in the Netherlands. In 2007, I completed a 6 day post-graduate seminar organised by Jani White of Naturechild on Acupuncture and Fertility at the Royal College of Physicians, London. I have Reiki level 1 training and can offer this as part of the acupuncture treatment at request.
Having successful run my own practice for a few years, I took a break to focus on family life and other projects. During that time, I have continued my education in psychological therapies and social care and worked with adults and children with mental health and childhood trauma. My creative energy has focused on building my natural skincare and vegan soy candle business. I have a passion for all things natural and holistic which is at the central core of myself.
My style is to offer a holistic approach to treatment combining acupuncture, dietary and lifestyle advice that recognises the demands of modern life. My aim is to provide a comfortable, supportive and empowering patient-practitioner relationship.
