I qualified in 2011 with a BSc Honours Degree and Licentiate in Acupuncture, following an intensive, rewarding four years of study and clinical training at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine (CICM).
As a member of the British Acupuncture Council I am fully insured and meet the rigorous professional standards required with regard to ethics, hygiene and safe practice. I appreciate and value how important this is to patients.
It is a privilege to offer this ancient and effective therapy. A profound course of treatments inspired me to study Chinese medicine and I am passionate about natural healing and helping people take control of their own health. In my clinic you will receive an individually tailored course of treatments.
Having had many acupuncture treatments myself, I am a true advocate of its effectiveness and is my first port-of-call whenever the need arises, including pregnancy and labour. With our second child I chose a home-birth and used acupuncture and acupressure for pain relief. I am also married to an acupuncturist, and my husband and I both offer acupuncture for pregnancy and post-natal care.
Since taking my own children to a specialist paediatric acupuncturist in 2013, and seeing the benefits so quickly, I was inspired and encouraged to continue their treatment under supervision. I then trained with the UK’s leading expert, Julian Scott, on an extensive course in “Treating Babies and Children”. I now run a children’s clinic from our friendly practice in Cradley, Malvern. I am also very pleased to be able to offer acupuncture onsite to students at Malvern College Medical Centre, from January 2019.
I have trained in Chaoyi Fanhuan Qigong since 2005 and now practice Kung Fu at the Kui de Tang school (traditional praying mantis form) – exercises that were created from the same roots as traditional eastern acupuncture. These practices of mindful focus are the perfect supplements to acupuncture treatment. I have been practicing yoga and meditation for nearly twenty years, now including Vayu (aerial) yoga. I personally recommend them as lifestyle choices for wellbeing.
