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 am now pleased to be able to offer Acupuncture treatments as part of my therapeutic practice, after completing my Degree in Acupuncture at the International College of Oriental Medicine in East grinstead, the oldest acupuncture college in the UK. The course allowed me to deepen my knowledge of this ancient healing art, and pursue my interest in studying Chinese philosophy and history. 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, ICOM (International College of Oriental Medicine)
