About me

I am an experienced acupuncturist and herbalist practising in Surbiton, Surrey.

I treat a range of conditions, but I have a particular interest in:

  • Helping women and men improve their fertility naturally and effectively with a combination of acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine and dietary and lifestyle advice;
  • Offering acupuncture support during IVF treatment, including treatments in IVF clinics on the day of embryo transfer, which has been shown to improve pregnancy rates;
  • Using Chinese medicine to provide natural solutions for women’s health issues, such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis, painful periods, PMT/PMS and menopausal symptoms;
  • Treating conditions during pregnancy, such as nausea, aches and pains caused by pregnancy, breech presentation and promoting natural and efficient labour;
  • Helping patients to manage painful conditions, such as migraines and frequent headaches, low back pain, neck pain, pain from osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis and injuries and fractures; and
  • Management of autoimmune conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis, fibromylagia and polymyalgia rheumatica;

I am a member of the Association of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture UK and the Register of Chinese Herbal Medicine.

Training, qualifications & experience

I studied Chinese medicine for five years and have a First Class honours degree (BSc) in acupuncture and a Master’s Degree (MSc) in Chinese herbal medicine awarded with distinction from the University of Westminster in London.

I continue to develop my understanding of Chinese medicine by attending regular seminars given by leading Chinese medicine practitioners from all over the world
