Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine
After graduating from UCL with a pharmacology degree I combined my medical interest with a fascination for Chinese philosophy by studying acupuncture. I now have over 35 years of clinical experience. I practice both modern and traditional styles of acupuncture. This includes both 5-element and TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) styles. Photobiomodulation (PBT) therapy is a needle-free way of stimulating acupuncture points, tendons, joints and muscle trigger points. PBT is a special light therapy which is gaining a lot of support from both the clinical and research communities. PBT is great for those who don’t like needles. Not only that but it widens the scope and depth of an acupuncture treatment.
Chinese herbal medicine has a history as long as acupuncture. Less well known than acupuncture in the UK, in China herbs are used more commonly and for all sorts of conditions. I find that some problems respond better to acupuncture and some better to herbs. Consider acupuncture for musculoskeletal problems, maybe a combination of acupuncture and herbs for fertility issues, and so on.
I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council, which is the leading professional membership of acupuncturists in the UK. As a member of the British Acupuncture Council I am on a voluntary register that has been accredited by the Professional Standards Authority. I'm also a member of The Federation of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners.
I have particular interests in the areas of fertility, fatigue and pain management.
