Welcome To My Website
My aim is to offer you a professional ‘Whole Person’ approach to supporting your health and well being using acupuncture and shiatsu.
Based on over 20 years of experience, extensive training and clinical experience in the field of Chinese Medicine, my intention is for you to feel confident that your best interests are always at heart.
Being a practitioner of Acupuncture, Shiatsu and Qigong means that I can use one or a combination of these disciplines to offer a comprehensive and individual service that addresses your needs physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
I will spend time working with you to develop small, sustainable and enjoyable ways to build up your health and become more resilient to the problems life can throw at us.
Getting the most from your treatment.
Your initial consultation and treatment lasts an hour and a half, so there will be plenty of time for you to explain your health concerns and feel listened to carefully, patiently and compassionately. You will have time to discuss and ask questions if you are unsure of anything concerning your health and your treatment.
Research shows that acupuncture and shiatsu are safe and effective.
Both acupuncture and shiatsu can be effective for a wide range of health problems and due to their increasing use alongside conventional medicine, there is a growing body of evidence and high quality research emerging to confirm this.
Acupuncture is now being used in NHS general practices as well as the majority of pain clinics and hospices around the UK.
Currently, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommend considering acupuncture for chronic lower back pain, chronic tension-type headaches and migraines. There is also some evidence that acupuncture works for neck pain and post-chemotherapy side effects such as nausea, vomiting and chronic fatigue.
