Some people come for treatment of a specific issue or symptom, whereas others come to improve general wellbeing. Acupuncture addresses imbalances within the body by stimulating specific points onchannels called meridians.

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.

Acupuncture is an ancient system of medicine developed in China over 3000 years ago. It is based on the concept of Qi (or chi) which is the essential energy that flows in our bodies through anenergetic network of channels called "meridians". When the Qi flows freely through the channels, we experience health and well-being. However, if the flow of energy gets blocked, discomfort, pain and ill health will occur.
