You need a practitioner who really cares…

I trained at Salford University where I gained a BSc (Honours) degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture. I am fully qualified and insured to practice and a member of the British Acupuncture Council. I come from a background of sports physiotherapy, but have also trained to second degree in Reiki healing. I have also trained in deep-tissue massage and myofascial release under the internationally recognised Art Riggs.

More recently I have studied Barnes Myofascial release under Ruth Duncan and visceral manipulation with Ron Mariotti. Using my unique combination of skills I have already been able to help guide many people back to full health.

There is a little-known style of acupuncture called Tung’s style acupuncture which is somewhat more advanced than most standard training in this country. I have learned these techniques from the highly regarded Daoist Master Dr.Henry Mcann. It is these techniques which mean coming to see me may yield a result where others have failed. For painful conditions, you could normally expect to notice a reduction in pain within just 2 minutes! These sort of results just have be seen to be believed.

I believe you are unique. That is why you need a treatment which is unique, not just some routine or a prescription out of a book. Unlike other therapists, I don’t try and squeeze appointments into 30 or 45 minute slots, I’m confident I can make a difference and sometimes that takes a little longer..so appointments may last an hour or more.

I live for my work and love what I do. It would be great to hear from you, so get in touch
