ABOUT ME

DSC_7484_edited.png

I am a highly experienced remedial massage therapist, acupuncturist, and a qualified yoga teacher.

 

I have been working as a full-time massage therapist since 2010, prior to which I was teaching yoga in adult education in London for 6 years.  I studied massage in the UK and then in the US at the renowned Swedish Institute of Massage in New York City. I have worked in busy chiropractic clinics in both New York and London, and I have also ran my own private practice.

I completed my BSc (Hons) in Acupuncture from the University of Greenwich at the International College of Oriental Medicine in East grinstead, the oldest acupuncture college in the UK. I am trained in Traditional Chinese Acupuncture, Five Element and Classical Stems & Branches acupuncture. I have a particular interest in looking at my clients's birth chart and constitution, as well as their presenting signs and symptoms in order to assist them in re-establishing balance in a way that honours their own unique circumstances. 

In my years of practice I have been privileged to witness - and experience -  the impact that  skilled  treatments can have, and how it can inspire people to reclaim a sense of power and ownership over their health and lifestyle choices. I offer a therapeutic space that fosters dialogue and a sense of discovery about how imbalances can be adjusted, by working collaboratively with my clients.

  • BSc (Hons) Acupuncture, University of Greenwich, ICOM (International College of Oriental Medicine)

  • NADA Ear Acupuncture practitioner

  • Facial Enhancement Acupuncture practitioner
