I have had a long term interest in healing and I have studied various healing systems including Reiki, Radionics, reflexology and other techniques alongside developing a strong personal meditation practice.
My first experience with acupuncture was for the treatment for post viral chronic fatigue and acupuncture helped me to recover from the debilitating condition fairly rapidly where Western Medicine did not really have any answers. This experience had such a profound impact on me it inspired me to study Chinese medicine.
I studied acupuncture and Chinese Medicine at the renowned College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading, where I gained both a Licentiate in Acupuncture from the college and a degree from Kingston University qualifying in 2008.
The course consisted of an integrated style approach and training in both traditional Chinese acupuncture and 5 Element acupuncture as well as strong emphasis on conventional medical sciences. The course lasted for just under 4 years which included a year of clinical training treating patients in the college clinic.
I am also a member of the British Acupuncture Council and am bound by their strict code of Safe Practice and Professional Conduct.
After graduation I continued my studies and professional development and studied Japanese acupuncture in the style of Kiiko Matsumoto with Andy Harrop and Kiiko Matsumoto as well as Dr Tan Balance method and Master Tung style of acupuncture which is the system I find gives the best results. My other training includes treating fertility, acupuncture for sports injuries, Tui Na and cosmetic acupuncture as well as studying Thai massage in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
I have also completed in-depth training in Scenar and have studied with Debra Graham and Alexander Revenko, one of the inventors of Scenar and the founder of the Scenar Academy of Russia before moving over to Physiokey therapy.
I am passionate about my work and my development as a healer. I Have many tools I can use to facilitate the healing process and personal development of my clients. I always work with from the highest integrity and do my best I can with each individual person I work with and am often humbled by my patients, the medicine and the power of the body to return to wholeness.
