About Me

I find it hard to believe that I have been seeing patients and teaching for 40 years!  
I consider myself very lucky to have found my calling at such a young age, and I still love my work

For each patient, I provide integrated treatment drawing on the range of acupuncture styles and other disciplines I have learned over the years


Treatments usually involve massage, and gentle mobilisation techniques as well as needles, and possibly craniosacral work or cupping or warming of points as needed  


I am grateful for all the thorough training which allows me to help with such a variety of problems.  It is wonderful to see how well people flourish when the body is reminded of how it is to be healthy
