About me

I have been in practice as an Acupuncturist for over 39 years and for 30 years as an Osteopath, (which I no longer practice). I also do the very latest Cosmetic acupuncture, Hypnotherapy for weight loss and the amazing one session to give up smoking using an award winning programme and food Allergy testing, where you get the results immediately.

My Hours of Opening are Tues to Fri  10am to 5.30pm

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained for five years at college and 2 years post graduate in Traditional 5 Element and TCM Acupuncture. I also did 2 yrs Hypnotherapy training but tend now to only use it on patients for weight control and to help them stop smoking. The anti-smoking programme I use is particularly brilliant and is just one 1 hour session to kill that smoking habit.
Remember good training and experience is what really counts with acupuncture.
