My background in health and social care underpins the way I work as an acupuncturist.
After three years’ full-time degree level study at the International College of Oriental Medicine, I gained a BSc (Hons) in Acupuncture. The course provided a thorough grounding in all aspects of acupuncture and its associated philosophy, together with their practical application on patients. The study of Western anatomy, physiology and pathology was also a compulsory part of the course.
I have a strong interest in using acupuncture to help people reduce their stress and anxiety levels, achieve better sleep and enjoy greater daytime energy.
I also work as a complementary therapist on a voluntary basis each week at the MacMillan Horizon Cancer Support Centre in Brighton, treating cancer patients with acupuncture. I find this aspect of my work deeply rewarding and it has helped to broaden my professional skill and experience.
I am also a qualified practitioner of Indian Head Massage and you can find out more about this ancient Ayurvedic practice and how to book an appointment by visiting my other website.
