Training, qualifications & experience
Marina completed her Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Acupuncture undergraduate degree at the University of Westminster. After graduating, she travelled to Taiwan and shadowed experienced TCM doctors in Tai Zhong hospital. Marina is currently working on her Master’s degree in Chinese Herbal Medicine at the University of Westminster. She is also learning Chinese Mandarin to gain deeper appreciation of Chinese medicine and culture through the language.
Marina had extensive Yin Style Ba Gua training with Andrew Nugent-Head. She also practises Master Tung’s system, Dr. Richard’s Tan Balancing method and Kiiko Matsumoto’s Japanese acupuncture approaches to treatment. Marina sees acupuncture as an alternative and complementary medicine to conventional treatments and, therefore, can treat numerous health complaints. She uses massage techniques during acupuncture and also uses her knowledge of Chinese Medicine when giving massage.
Marina is an ITEC qualified, very experienced and highly skilled massage practitioner. Her understanding of healing through touch gained incredible depth through her training with Gerry Pyves, the developer of the No Hands massage style. This style involves the gradual falling of the practitioner’s body weight through the soft parts of their forearms onto the client during massage. This delivers physical and psychological support to the client and is naturally followed by the letting go of emotional and physical tension. The No Hands touch is uniquely soothing yet deep and transformational. You will be asked to feel, breathe and release any tension that can be released on the day. You have to try this style to truly appreciate the power of therapeutic touch.
