Working in Traditional Chinese Medicine & 5 Element Acupuncture since 2007
First and foremost, I feel so very fortunate to be in a profession that I enjoy. The positive effects I have in helping others to lead a rich and nourishing life is incredibly rewarding and refreshing.
As my knowledge and skills surrounding traditional Chinese medicine continue to grow, so does my confidence, where it’s my goal to offer quality acupuncture treatments in Leicester.
My techniques are based on 2,000-year-old principles that focus on uncovering the root cause of a complaint to help restore balance in the body. I love and appreciate the breadth of this age-old medicine and recognise that two people with the same conventional diagnosis will require different acupuncture treatments. Simply put, we are all unique in the way we manifest symptoms or develop an illness or disease.
I also enjoy helping to empower a patient’s overall health and wellbeing by complementing their acupuncture treatment with lifestyle changes, such as yoga, tai chi and meditation, healthy nutrition or anything else that nourishes body and soul.
My interest in complementary healthcare started after working as a personal trainer at Matt Roberts Personal Training in London. This is where my appreciation for Western exercise and holistic nutrition began.
Since then, I have developed a strong passion for Chinese nutritional therapy and the medicinal properties of food. In a nutshell, this is a very simple and authentic way of eating following the laws of nature. All of my nutritional advice is based on this natural approach.

I graduated as an acupuncturist in 2007. Due to its first class teaching reputation, I chose the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine, one of the most recognised acupuncture colleges in Europe, where I studied for three and a half years. The training developed my extensive understanding of both conventional medical science and Chinese medical theory.
Certified through the British Acupuncture Council (www.acupuncture.org.uk), I am bound by Codes of Ethics and Safe Practice and strictly follow the safety procedures approved by The Department of Health.
On a regular basis, I undertake continued professional development to gain increased knowledge and to keep up to date in the medical field. This year I am completing further training in Chinese nutritional therapy.
