About me

My philosophical questioning about the existential drive has led me to the interest in subtle energies. Acupuncture and herbal medicine are ways to access those energies. They are part of the vibrational medicine that promotes good health by adjusting the intricate balance within the channels. Nurturing wellbeing is a fine-tuning of the multiple energetic flows.

I have 10 years experience as a practitioner (acupuncturist, massage therapist, and Chinese herbalist). I started my career at the Pain Management Clinics at the Royal Free and Whittington hospitals where I perfected an understanding about the treatments of musculoskeletal pains. My clinical experience includes helping homeless people and supporting individuals with mental issues at Crime Reductions Initiatives.

I continue to attend ongoing training with leading experts to further deepen my knowledge.

I have expertise in the following therapies:

– Acupuncture works efficiently to assist with acute and chronic pain, general health maintenance and disease prevention. An acupuncture session can combine cupping, moxa, guasha and massage depending on your condition.

I practice Japanese acupuncture, a very gentle style that suits the most sensitive.

– Facial rejuvenation acupuncture can slow down the ageing process by improving your overall health.

– Chinese herbal medicine has a deep knowledge of their healing effects and therefore can provide effective treatment for a wide range of health disorders from disease prevention to severe, acute and chronic conditions.

– Acupressure and Massage: the stimulation of acupressure points can relieve musculoskeletal pain, stiffness like athritis and sciatica, and help to relax body and mind. Massage activates the healing response by promoting circulation.

You will enjoy being cared for in a safe, clean, relaxing and rejuvenating atmosphere.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a therapist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the therapist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
