Facial acupuncture is a holistic treatment to promote a glowing complexion whilst simultaneously improving your health and wellbeing. After a thorough assessment, fine needles are inserted into carefully chosen acupuncture points that restore Qi (energy) flow and increase blood circulation to the face. Additional points on the body, arms or legs are selected for a balanced treatment appropriate to the individual. Each session includes a wonderfully relaxing Tui-Na (Chinese style) face massage that helps to release facial tension. The treatment is gentle, restorative and calming. This is a treatment where you can relax and enjoy a process that helps you to look well and feel well too.
My fascination with traditional Eastern approaches to healing began when I faced my own long and challenging period of ill health. After I experienced and greatly benefited from, the gentle, nurturing and holistic approach of acupuncture, I was inspired to train as a practitioner and help others improve their own health and wellness. I learnt how wonderfully nourishing and supportive acupuncture can be and how its benefits have been enjoyed for over 2000 years.
Following three years of study, I graduated from the London College of Traditional Acupuncture in 2008 with a BSc (Hons) and LIcAc in acupuncture and have run my own successful practice ever since.
I have expertise in treating a wide variety of health conditions specialising in particular in two key areas – women’s health and emotional health.
Many of my clients come to me with symptoms relating to an imbalance in their menstrual cycle, such as painful or irregular periods. Many have been diagnosed with PMS, PCOS or endometriosis or they may be struggling to conceive. I understand that these kinds of conditions can often affect the mind as much as the body and I provide a nurturing and caring environment coupled with a practical plan of how best to treat and overcome them. I also provide support for people that are experiencing stress and depression and who may be facing significant life challenges.
As well as these specialisations, I offer facial acupuncture, a wonderfully relaxing and restorative treatment which can improve not only the tone and texture of the skin but also boost energy, well-being and promote wider benefits such as deeper sleep.
I gain great satisfaction in offering each of my clients a truly bespoke experience. I offer a thorough, personal, consultation prior to any treatment to ensure that the healing you receive joins the dots between your mental, emotional and physical health. Acupuncture takes into account so many factors – your external environment, nutrition, injuries, thoughts, and emotions, which can all negatively or positively affect you. I truly believe that acupuncture can help you progress through life with an increased sense of clarity and wellbeing.
I am passionate about my work and am fully committed to helping my clients regain improved health and wellbeing.
