I have been working with Acupuncture and Body Therapies (Zero Balancing, Relaxation Techniques and Meditation) for over 20 years. I love doing this work, and the effects and benefits it has on those I work with.
My experience of having acupuncture inspired me to study it - a recurrent physical problem I’d had for years disappeared and emotionally I felt ready, to move on. I was a dancer, (notoriously dancers don’t look after themselves well and I was no exception), my acupuncturist gave me such great treatment and advice on how to keep building my health and well-being that my interest just kept going!
I practice Five Element Acupuncture because of its deep contact with nature and very direct understanding of the connection between body and mind, I also studied to integrate this with 8 principles - TCM Acupuncture – which has a direct way of approaching symptoms. Now I also use my ongoing study of Japanese Acupuncture, which is a particularly gentle and precise approach using very fine needles and can release energy blocks with profound effects.
I’m a member of the British Acupuncture Council, the UK's main regulatory body for the practice of traditional acupuncture.
Other interests inform my practice. Zen Practice has become part of my life. Meditation in particular is so helpful that I often incorporate simple meditation techniques and relaxation exercises into my treatment plans if needed. I love going on retreats, for the stillness and silence. Gardening and walking in nature keep me in touch with the elements. I practice yoga and I love receiving and giving bodywork (Zero Balancing) Zero Balancing, which I began when I finished my first Acupuncture training – this is another wonderful tool to help individuals who may need a more touch oriented therapy to help release tension and to return to feeling truly embodied and at ease.
I see my clients from my practices in London Bridge and West Dulwich
