My Credentials


 I am a Licensed Acupuncturist in the USA, where acupuncture is a highly regulated profession.  I passed the NCCAOM (National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine) exams after completing a three-year degree program.   In the UK, unfortunately, there is no regulatory body to award licenses to acupuncturists.

While studying, I was awarded a research grant to study the effects of tai chi and qigong on Cancer survivorship.  I wrote and published a paper on the benefits of these practices and have been teaching tai chi and qigong for over 10 years now.  And I have a specific interest in treating cancer survivors. 

I have completed various advanced post-graduate trainings with a variety of teachers and systems: Dr. Tan's Balance Method, NatureChild Postgraduate certificate (fertility acupuncture), Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture and most recently I trained extensively with John Tindle.  

I also have recognised qualifications in Reflexology, Aromatherapy, Counselling, and Massage.

My style of treatment is mainly TCM-based as taught by my professors from Bejing, but I bring together elements of all my years of training and experience to create the optimal healing experience and environment for each individual. I also create bespoke lotions and aromatherapy blends for my facial rejuvenation clients.  

My Experience

I have been in practice since 2005 when I opened The White Clinic in Lincoln, UK.​  I done thousands of treatments over my career and each person requires a singularly unique treatment. I know that we all are unique beings and have different ways of existing in the world.   My devotion to my art means that in each moment there is an opportunity to learn and grow.  I also teach personal energy management - aka tai chi and qigong (since 2009) in a variety of classes and workshop venues across the world. The picture above shows a class I lead in the Sahara desert!   

I like to give of my time and expertise to the community, so I volunteer for World Medicine and have been involved in supporting the Grenfell Towers community in the aftermath of the tragedy there.  

I also serve as a board member of ACMAC (Association of Community and Multi-bed Acupuncture clinics) and am a huge fan and proponent of community acupuncture which I feel is truer to the roots of acupuncture practice. 

How I work

Life throws us endless challenges, with many highs and lows.  We all face illness and discomfort at some point, so best to find intelligent ways to deal calmly and work with our body's natural capacity for healing rather than suppress symptoms with drugs.  No need for a hammer when a small tap will do the job.  I'm here to activate your body's innate healing wisdom. 


I particularly love working with women struggling with infertility or hormone related health issues as I know the misery of not being heard or having your concerns dismissed as normal.  So many women suffer needlessly when there are real solutions to many common women's health issues. 

I have many tools to help you get more flow and clarity as you journey onwards, and I also am happy to refer patients for whom my skills are not the best fit.  I specialise in musculoskeletal pain (back, shoulder, knees mainly) and women's health issues (hormonal regulation, infertility and period pain) and facial rejuvenation acupuncture.

I have seen acupuncture help so many people profoundly, I have become an enthusiastic campaigner to help acupuncture integrate more fully into our healthcare options.    

I like to think of my role as a partner in helping you find an intelligent way to your navigate your life's path with more ease and comfort.  

I look forward to meeting you and helping you as you find a path to greater vitality and health.  


Warm wishes,
