‘I have been helping patients to become free from pain for over a decade. I have always had a strong desire to help people and I am passionate about using acupuncture and Chinese medicine to achieve this.
Although I treat many different types of conditions in the clinic I do see a high number of patients experiencing pain. Thankfully this is one of acupuncture’s great strengths and it works quickly to get to the cause of the problem and give longlasting relief.
My other specialism is treating headaches and migraines. This is a condition that affects many people and I am very fortunate to be able to offer an effective solution to this problem.
During my career I have spent several periods onboard luxury cruise ships educating and introducing acupuncture to people from all over the world.
I have also studied with world-famous acupuncturists and I continue to find the best and most effective ways to practise.
The benefits of acupuncture can be seen very quickly in clinic and normally for pain-related conditions relief will be seen in the first session.
From a young age I have always had a fascination with Chinese medicine, healing and Eastern cultures, and have been an avid student of qigong and meditation since 2002. After making many drastic changes to my lifestyle in my late teens, I was inspired to dedicate my career to helping others regain their health.’
