I practise an integrated approach, which incorporates Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and 5-Element acupuncture to provide a truly holistic treatment for a wide variety of health conditions.

As a member of the British Acupuncture Council (www.acupuncture.org.uk)I am bound by a Code of Safe Practice which maintains high standards of hygiene and the use of single-use sterile disposable needles.
