I offer a friendly and professional service, along with a thorough and detailed understanding of most conditions, from both a Western and Chinese Medicine perspective. Your treatment is individuallytailored, not only to alleviate your symptoms, but also to address the root cause, for a more effective result. I will support you throughout your journey back to better health, strengthen your reserves and improve your well-being.
Acupuncture, unlike Western Medicine, approaches healing by encouraging the body to heal itself. The whole body is treated not just the symptom of the condition. The body is encouraged to re-balanceand self-heal by altering energy flow in this safe, reliable system of medicine that has been practiced for thousands of years.

I have known, since I was about 4 years old, that one day I would help people. There was never an iota of doubt. What I meant then, which I know now, is that my life's aim was (and is) to improvepeople's quality of life. That belief has continued throughout my adult life. Now through sustained learning and development of Acupuncture and Nutrition, I have the innate ability to fulfil my dream. I embarked on my journey in 1997 when I studied Fitness and Nutrition in South Africa.
