I am a registered Traditional Acupuncturist and member of the British Acupuncture Council, having completed a postgraduate degree at the Northern College of Acupuncture in York. I have also completed a diploma in Reflexology and am a full member of the Association of Reflexologists.
In addition to my acupuncture degree, I have also undertaken additional training in a variety of related therapies and specialist areas of treatment (see below). This gives me the skills to treat a very wide range of conditions and to tailor your treatment to your own individual needs and preferences. My particular interests are pain management, supporting those with chronic health conditions and combining reflexology with auricular acupuncture.
I have also completed a Mental Health First Aid course to enable me to better support those clients seeking treatment for anxiety, depression and other mental health conditions.
Many people feel a little nervous about having acupuncture treatment for the first time. This is perfectly understandable. To help you feel comfortable, I take particular care to listen to your story and your needs and do everything I can to make your acupuncture or reflexology treatment a positive, rewarding experience.
