I have been studying and practising the principles of ancient Chinese Medicine since 2001. I was originally drawn to Five-Element Acupuncture because of its emphasis on treating the whole person rather than focusing solely on the symptoms – an approach radically different from the type of medicine practised in the West. In classical Chinese acupuncture, symptoms are seen as the body’s natural response to disease. Only by understanding and treating the underlying disorder can health and harmony be restored.
Training and qualifications
Since completing my degree at the College of Traditional Acupuncture in Leamington Spa, I have steadily built up my practice and now have regular clinics in Newent, Cheltenham and Stroud.
In addition to my ongoing professional development, I have recently completed a two-year postgraduate programme with Niki H. Bilton, one of the world’s foremost teachers and practitioners of classical Five-Element Acupuncture.
As a fully qualified member of the British Acupuncture Council, I treat patients of all ages and from all walks of life. For more information on standards and codes of professional conduct for acupuncturists, please visit the British Acupuncture Council website .
