About me

I offer a range of therapies as well as acupuncture, having trained in remedial massage and Tui Na (Chinese massage), Cranial Balancing, Chinese herbal medicine, body work, alignment techniques and kinesiology. In general, all techniques have a balancing effect on the body's systems, the aim is to clear blockages, restore harmony and allow the body’s natural healing abilities to take effect.

Each individual therapy has a unique, more specific effect of its own, that are best appreciated by experiencing it for yourself. Acupuncture has a deeper and more refined or specific effect on the functions of the body's systems. Cranial balancing has a wider reaching effect on the joints of the whole body, posture and nervous system. Massage has general effect on the nervous system and circulation but a more specific effect to damage, and tension in muscles ligaments and tendons.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am fully qualified to Degree level in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine with diplomas amounting to 6 years of study in all other therapies. I am fully insured and registered with the Academy of Traditional Chinese Medicine and the British Register of Complimentary Medicine.

In 1988 I began my training in remedial massage, combining this with further training and clinical experience simultaneously working in an osteopathic clinic. I continued my work there for over 7yrs, including a 2yr study of body alignment methods and cranio-sacral balancing techniques.

My study of Chinese Medicine began in 1999 with a diploma in Tui Na (Chinese Massage), a diploma in Acupuncture in 2003 and BSc in Chinese Medicine in 2008, accompanied with clinical observation in TCM hospitals in China.I have worked in many venues in Suffolk since 1996, including Shrubland Hall Health Clinic and in full time private practice since 1999.
