I am a Licensed Acupuncturist in the USA, licensed by the NCCAOM (National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine). In the UK, unfortunately, there is no regulatory body to award licenses to acupuncturists, but I am a member of The British Acupuncture Council.
I hold a BSc in Acupuncture from the University of Lincoln which is a three year course of study complete with many clinical hours. While there I was awarded a research grant to study the effects of tai chi and qigong on Cancer survivorship. I wrote a paper on the benefits of these practices and have been teaching tai chi and qigong for over 10 years now.
I completed advanced post-graduate training with a variety of teachers and systems: Dr. Tan's Balance Method, NatureChild Postgraduate certificate (fertility acupuncture), Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture and most recently trained extensively with John Tindle in Microsystems Acupuncture.
I also have a Level 5 BTEC in Complementary Therapies which includes training and qualifications in Reflexology, Aromatherapy, Counselling, and Massage.
My style of treatment is mainly TCM-based as I was taught by professors from Bejing, but I also have studied Five Element Acupuncture, which I also use in clinic. I also use elements of all my complementary therapies to create the optimal healing experience and environment for my patients. I also create bespoke lotions and aromatherapy blends for my private clientele.
