Some forms of medicine have existed almost unchanged since the earliest written records and cropped up in almost every culture ever known. One of the most common has been the use of stimulation toencourage change, relieve symptoms or help people understand a new phase of life.

I rate Shirmilla among the best I have seen for the following reasons:- She is a very clear communicator, explaining throughout what she is doing and why. I went to her with lower back pain; sheexplained to me that the problem was not just in my lower back and worked on my upper back too, and solved my problem. Likewise, when I consulted her about knee pain she identified issues with my IT band and hamstrings, which she is treating. She does not just treat the point of pain.
I have over 10 years experience in complementary and alternative medicine. My journey in healing started in 1996 when a family friend who was diagnosed with skin cancer asked me to help in thewellbeing process. A few years later on my travels in Tibet I came across integrated medical practice where Chinese medicine was used along with western medicine which led me to study traditional Chinese medicine at the London College of Traditional Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine.
