With the combined experience of running my own Practice for 5 years and over 2500 consultations to date, I use an integrated style of acupuncture, encompassing both Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Five Element. The combination of these two styles allows me to focus treatment on all levels (mind, body and spirit).
I am also experienced in cupping therapy, moxibustion, guasha and tui na (Chinese massage). Drawing upon these techniques I can effectively address physical pain in the body.
I am an alumni of the internationally renowned College of Integrated Chinese Medicine and trained for 4 years with some of the world’s leading acupuncture experts including John Hicks, Angela Hicks and Peter Mole.
In addition to pain relief my treatments can also help with many other ailments and symptoms, including:

Stiff Neck - M.G (Putney)
"For years now, I have suffered with a very stiff neck, which made it very painful to turn sharply to my right hand side, especially when driving. Now, at last I can forego the painkillers and after 6 sessions of acupuncture with Suzanne I now have a great feeling of well being. Suzanne is very sympathetic to patients' various aches and pains and most efficient in her work; I would thoroughly recommend Suzanne to give acupuncture treatment in a very sensitive way."
Back Pain - J.C (Minchinhampton)
"Having had treatment from Suzanne for a leg injury and ongoing back problems I can thoroughly recommend her professional and sympathetic approach. Hitherto I have been a little sceptical about acupuncture but I now look forward to continuing sessions."
Acne Rosacea - A.B (Petersfield)
I came for acupuncture because of acne rosacea which I have had for over 20 years and very sore, itchy and red skin patches on my feet and hands. My treatments are so relaxing and I look forward to them every week. Suzanne really listens and takes the time to find out how I have been.
I am glad to say that my skin is now looking much better on my face and the sores on my feet, especially in the winter, have cleared up completely. I am now an acupuncture fan!
Meibornian Gland Dysfunction - W.K (Reading)
When I came for treatment I had been suffering for 2 years from extremely dry and painful eyes. I was not able to cry as the tears stung. I couldn’t go out without dark sunglasses because my eyes were so sensitive to the light and I was not able to have any soap or chemicals near them. After 5 months treatment with acupuncture the ache in my eyes went from an 8/10 – 3/10 and they feel less dry (I can open them comfortably when I wake in the morning). I still have to be extremely careful what I put near my eyes however the red eyelids have calmed down and they do not sting when I yawn. I feel so much more optimistic about the future. I have found that my sleeping has also improved which is an extra bonus.
Repetitive Strain Injury - E.M (Hackney)
I've had 3 sessions with Suzanne so far and have felt some benefits already. She has been working on a repetitive strain in my thumb and also some joint problems in my hip. Everything is improving! Her kind and professional manner gave me confidence and the treatments were relaxing and enjoyable. I would highly recommend Suzanne to anyone.
Suzanne is an incredibly kind, caring and knowledgeable practitioner. I felt like I was in safe hands with her from day one and she has helped me immensely since I’ve been having treatment with her. Can’t recommend highly enough.
Neck & Shoulder Pain - L.Z (Epsom)
I went to see Suzanne for my neck and shoulder pain. After a couple of acupuncture and cupping sessions, the pain had improved and my neck and shoulder muscles were a lot less stiff. Suzanne also used moxa treatment to help with my cold feet and legs. I always feel relaxed, and at the same time more energetic after the treatment.
Very beneficial treatment and would definitely return when needed.Having been treated by various acupuncturist over the years, I found Suzanne to have a very natural and intuitive understanding of acupuncture and would recommend her to anyone.
Stress & Circulation - T.C (Falmouth)
Relaxing and professional treatment that made me feel rejuvenated and refreshed. I didn't know much about acupuncture beforehand but thought I'd give it a go to help me de-stress and improve my poor circulation - it definitely worked! Suzanne was also lovely and happy to chat about the different types of treatment provided and how they work. Will certainly be returning.
Suzanne is a kind and compassionate lady who understands you on both an emotional and physical level. She is a great practitioner.
E.W (Turnham Green)
Suzanne was welcoming, thorough and very gentle. I enjoyed the experience and will be returning to follow a plan of health!
Back pain - M.B (Alderney)
In single word…transformational – Troubles were lower back pain previously requiring medication for peaceful nights sleep. Suzanne is a very knowledgeable, calm and professional practitioner who outlined what to expect over the week post treatment. The feeling of increased well-being with progressive reduction in lower back pain, was as Suzanne predicted. Excellent value and highly recommended.
