My mission statement is 'to promote affordable acupuncture for everyone'. This is because I feel so passionately about what I do. With our National Health service under such pressure from an increasingly sick population its is vitally important that we get healthy & stay healthy in a holistic way without the need to rely on pharmaceutical medications & constant medical intervention. By using acupuncture alongside a healthy lifestyle this can be achieveable.
Training, qualifications & experience
I studied at the International College of Oriental Medicine & completed a BSc (Hons) degree over a period of 5 years. Since then I have completed CPD in various other therapies including Laser Therapy, Facial Enhancement & Auricular Acupuncture.
I treat a wide variety of complaints & patients but I do tend to specialise in pain management & relief with great success according to my patient feedback. I have found the integration of the ancient knowledge of acupuncture alongside the most up to date technology of low level laser can provide an extremely comprehensive & beneficial therapy.
British Acupuncture Council (BAcC)
As the UKs largest professional body of acupuncturists the BAcC guarantee excellence in training, safe practice and professional conduct.
All members of the BAcC (MBAcC) have BSc or BA degree level training or its equivalent in traditional acupuncture, Chinese medicine, and western biomedical sciences including anatomy, physiology and pathology.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
I charge £40 for the initial acupuncture or laser consultation & £35 thereafter.
If you require a combined treatment (acupuncture & laser) the fee is £45 then £40.
When I work
All day Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday with some evening availability
I practise from my home in a lovely purpose built garden studio. I do not see patients 'back to back' which ensures that everyone has plenty of time for a relaxing individual treatment.
