DCHAc – Diploma in Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture.
I have been studying Acupuncture since 1998 and spent several years studying with: John Tindall at The Yuan Clinic and Traditional Medicine College London in micro systems acupuncture.
‘Micro systems’ means using for example the scalp. hand, foot or ears as they represent the whole body in a microcosmic way , similar to reflexology: These methods are fast and effective and achieve amazing results when used in conjunction with body acupuncture. They are also a great stand alone treatment and have been particularly instrumental in dealing with cravings for nicotine, food, drugs and alcohol.
I am a fully trained and qualified body Acupuncturist as well as a micro systems practioner having obtained my diploma in Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture through The University of Beijing and Acu-medic; London.
I passionately believe in an integrated approach to well being and have over 25 years of experience working with the body.
Acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment for a wide range of problems. Western medicine is fantastic, surgery and treatment protocols are revolutionary in what we can now achieve. However there are gaps that western medicine sometimes cannot fill. For example it is a very good ‘supporting’ treatment if you are receiving chemotherapy as it enables your body to cope better with the unpleasant side effects of the chemotherapy.
I am a firm believer of an integrated approach. It is vital in this day and age to achieve better results, more quality of life and a sense of well being throughout the body & mind by combining western medicine and complimentary practices together.
As a stand alone treatment it is very effective for a huge range of issues including muscular skeletal problems/ injuries, stress and insomnia, fertility issues and dermatology. Some health issues also require the application of Chinese herbs which is possible at my clinics through referral.
- It is not necessary to ‘believe’ in acupuncture. It is not a religion! It is a science with very practical applications and I am very happy to let results speak for themselves.
- I run private acupuncture clinics in Brighton.
- I also offer a community clinic at various locations in Brighton please email for up to date information.
