I became fascinated with Chinese Medicine about 12 years ago and embarked on a long journey which is still continuing. My initial aim was to improve my own health and it was so successful that I wanted to share this with others and to be in a position to offer this opportunity to others. In that time I have studied and qualified in Medical Qi Gong, Acupuncture, Cupping, Moxibustion, Herbal Medicine and am currently finishing studies in Tuina massage and my second Herbal Medicine qualification. I have also studied Classical Chinese Medicine theory, Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture, Master Tung’s Acupuncture, Ear Acupuncture, Scalp Acupuncture and many more specialised areas within Chinese Medicine. I am also studying the Chinese Language and am currently translating material from books not available in the English language. This furthers my own knowledge which I than use in my clinic and also my teaching.

"Last year (2012) I translated 3 books which all helped further my own study in both herbal medicine and acupuncture and of course has a knock on effect in both the clinic and the classroom."

"The good news is that while the sentence structure is

different to the English language, the grammar is not too complicated. If you are even half interested in tackling the Chinese language texts, get in touch."
