About me

I am a traditional acupuncturist with over 25 years of helping clients with a huge range of problems. I have had long experience with fertility issues, helping women with unexplained infertility and supporting then through IVF. I can help with muscular skeletal issues of all types, and pain management generally. Headaches and stress related symptoms all benefit greatly from acupuncture, and overall well-being, immune system and emotional health is boosted. I am now treating Long Covid very successfully. I am a Reiki Master and often incorporate this into my sessions, along with massage and vibrational therapy. Treatment is relaxing and painless and takes place in the comfortable environment of my clinic in Canterbury, or at Littlebourne Surgery.

Training, qualifications & experience

I received my Licence to Practice Acupuncture after 3 and a half years intensive study at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading in 1996. I initially practiced in London, but for the last twenty one years have been based in Canterbury.  As a member of the British Acupuncture Council I regularly undertake training to update my skills, and have studied several other related therapies over the years.
