I am a Licensed Acupuncturist and Sports Massage Therapist working in the seaside community of Scarborough. I have a passion and drive for helping people, and this has been at the forefront of my mindduring my own personal journey into developing ROOT Acupuncture. This passion for wanting to help people with their journey to optimal Health and Fitness led me on my own personal adventure to discover the best way I could provide this.
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, 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.
Traditional Chinese acupuncture is one of the oldest and continuously practised systems of medicine in the world. This unique medical system was developed through empirical observation by the Chineseover thousands of years.

Lifestyle and environmental reasons can disturb, deplete or block this energy resulting in symptoms of pain and illness. Acupuncture works by inserting very fine needles into specific points on thebody to regulate the flow of this vital energy, helping return the body to its natural equilibrium. Some people turn to acupuncture for help with a specific symptom or condition.
