I have practised 5 Element Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine since 1998, when I graduated from the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading. My initial enquiry into acupuncture andother healing methods stemmed from travels through Asia, where holistic medicine is incorporated into daily life. On my return to the UK, I trained and subsequently worked as an acupuncturist, as well as in the field of nutrition and in personal development.

Chinese medicine is the longest continuous medical system known to man.

Some people turn to acupuncture for help with a specific symptom or condition. Others choose to have treatment to help maintain good health, as a preventive measure, or to improve their general senseof wellbeing. Traditional acupuncture aims to treat the whole person rather than specific symptoms in isolation. Acupuncture works to help maintain your body's balance. It involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body to regulate the flow of Qi.
