Prior to training as an acupuncturist I gained a BA (Hons) at Wimbledon School of Art and worked in London as a Lead Artist/Animator. After 10 years of working long and stressful hours in the computer industry I was feeling stressed and really down; I had developed Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) and also had backache and a lot of headaches. I had seen the positive effects of acupuncture treatment in colleagues and after treatments felt the benefits of acupuncture myself. I began to look more into this therapy that could work alongside Western medicine and that did not just treat the illness but was concerned with the person as a whole.
I am passionate about acupuncture and aim to make treatments more accessible, thereby allowing more people to experience its benefits.
