Having found acupuncture helpful for various health conditions in the past, I looked into becoming an acupuncturist myself. Treating the whole person is an important aspect of Chinese Medicine, and the integrated approach offered by the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine (CICM) in Reading was very appealing to me.
I embarked on a three year course at CICM, graduating with a B.Sc. (Hons) in Acupuncture. I then practiced in Reading before establishing a clinic at my home in Malvern – see below for details. I have also successfully completed a one year Diploma course in Tui Na, and a further one year Diploma in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, both at CICM.
In previous years I have worked in a wide variety of environments, which has given me a broad perspective on people and the issues they can face on a day to day basis.
