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.
