About Me

 

I am a licenced acupuncturist with a Master’s Degree in Chinese Medicine and have been in full time practise for 16 years in California and the UK.

 

I originally studied and trained as a social worker in the UK thirty years ago. I first came across acupuncture in 1991 while living in New York City. At the time I was suffering from terrible sinus headaches and struggling with stress. After just a few acupuncture treatments my sinus headaches went and have never returned and I felt a clarity and relaxation that allowed me to handle the stress of life much more effectively.

 

To understand how this medicine had helped me, I enrolled in a medical anthropology class looking at various cultures’ medical systems and how their history and philosophy had created different ways of addressing ill health. I then decided to embark on a four year Masters Degree in Chinese Medicine at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego. Since 1998 I have been in full time practice and have given thousands of treatments to patients with widely varying conditions.

 

In California I worked for twelve years with a medical doctor who specialised in integrative health for those suffering with chronic disease and those wanting a more holistic approach to their medical concerns. I also undertook an extensive amount of personal study on the influences of the mind on the body. I have taken mindfulness workshops studying how working with the mind can be used to aid health and well being in the body. I use this along with my experience of Jungian therapy, when appropriate, to help patients look at how their emotions may be creating obstacles to realising their optimal health and happiness.
