About me

Acupuncture is extremely effective for a wide range of health complaints. It originated in China and other far eastern cultures over 2,000 years ago. Today it is used worldwide not only to help people with specific symptoms or conditions but also because they feel generally unwell but have no clear diagnosis or as a preventative measure to help maintain good health.

I am a fully qualified acupuncturist and member of the British Acupuncture Council, the leading regulatory body for the practice of acupuncture in the UK.  My acupuncture practice is approved and registered with South Oxfordshire District Council’s Licensing Authority.
