About me

I travelled in Asia and worked in Hong Kong and Japan for 4 years in my early 20‘s. During this period I developed a great interest in Chinese and Japanese cultures : In particular the philosophy, traditional methods of paper making and Tai chi. During this time I was treated with Oriental Medicine and the seeds were planted. Later, on my return to England I went on to study Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine and Moxibustion at the London Academy of Oriental medicine and qualified in 1997 after 4 years of study.

After the completion of my studies I returned to Asia when I was awarded a Scholarship for 1 year from the British Council for post-graduate studies in Tianjin College of Traditional Chinese medicine, China. Here my studies were clinic based in Tianjin Traditional Medicine Hospital. In the in-patient ward primarily treating patients with strokes and in the out-patients treating both acute and chronic conditions of pain. The experience gained was invaluable. Not only did I gain confidence and knowledge in the subject but I also saw, learnt, and practised the various methods for the treatment of pain and strokes and was able to experience and see the efficacy of Acupuncture treatments.

Following my studies I have worked both in private practice and for the NHS treating a wide range of conditions such as musculoskeletal, gynaecological, respiratory, and gastrointestinal disorders.I have also worked in Drug and Alcohol centres : Kingston CDAT, Kalideoscope and the Blenheim project treating addictions of both prescribed and non prescribed drugs.

More recently I have worked with Munrohealth charity as a therapist and a project coordinator for projects that offer complementary therapies for St Mungoes, those over 60's and carers. This inspired me to set up my own Community interest company called Bounce2health C.I.C that with funding offers a range of complementary services and workshops to those disadvantaged within the community free of charge.
