I am delighted to be a member of the team of healthcare practitioners and therapists at the Sunflower Centre.
The Five Element acupuncture style, which I am passionate about and that I practice, can help to enhance a patient's wellbeing on a physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual level, all of which are fundamental for good health.
I have a general practice and have experience treating muscular-skeletal problems, women's health issues, anxiety & depression, chronic pain, migraines, asthma, and conditions where patients have struggled to find relief with other more conventional medical approaches. I also have experience and a particular interest in treating people suffering from Long Covid and other physical and emotional after-effects of the coronavirus pandemic.
I take a holistic approach to diagnosis and healing, which hears, sees, and treats the patient, not the illness or disease. This involves identifying and correcting underlying imbalances which are the root cause of illness for each patient, rather than suppressing individual symptoms in the short term. This process of supporting a person back to balance and back into themselves can lead to an overall sense of increased well-being with longer-lasting physical and emotional benefits.
A list of conditions that acupuncture can help with can be found here: https://acupuncture.org.uk/about-acupuncture/fact-sheets/
I am a fully qualified classical acupuncturist, having received a licentiate from The Acupuncture Academy. My training has covered all aspects of Chinese medical and acupuncture theory including Traditional Chinese Medicine, but with a focus on the Five Element approach. I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council.
I use a variety of techniques depending on a patient's needs, including needling, moxibustion, cupping, and gua-sha.
