As a practitioner of acupuncture, shiatsu and traditional Chinese medicine, my aim is to restore health to mind & body. The combined approaches of shiatsu and acupuncture often make diagnosis andhealing more effective. I am happy to discuss your acupuncture or shiatsu requirements before you commit to treatment. I can spend 20 minutes with you at no cost, by phone or face to face, to ensure you are confident that I am the most suitable practitioner to treat you.
All of our treatments are based upon the use of Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) which can be used to diagnose and treat numerous health problems, in order to enhance the patients' health andquality of life. We aim to provide treatment of the highest standard and expertise in TCM. The treatments are safe, gentle and effective.
The Academy of Oriental Medicine Ltd was started by Dr Graham Chandler & Dr Philip Lawes. It was founded with the idea to keep the disciplines of Traditional Chinese Medicine together as they aretaught in China and the Far East, instead of studying the disciplines individually as is the common practice within the UK. This gives the therapist a far greater knowledge and the potential to treat a wider range of diseases and dysfunction.
Physiotherapy is a system of treatment of injury, illness, dysfunction or disability, utilising treatment methods that enhance the body's own natural healing and recovery mechanisms. CharteredPhysiotherapists specialise in getting to the root of your problem through observation, assessment and analysis of function and dysfunction, leading to a clinical diagnosis. All Physiotherapists at the Centre endeavor to increase their knowledge and keep up to date with the latest developments in the field.
Following a 15-year career in The City, I first trained in Holistic Clinical Aromatherapy and Therapeutic Massage. I have added Acupuncture, Acupressure and other massage therapies to my repertoire inorder to be able to offer a varied approach to suit the needs of each individual client. Each Modality has its own particular strength and I will often use them in combination to produce more effective results.
