LicAc MBacC BVetMed MRCVS DipPaed

When I first qualified as an acupuncturist, in 2002, children were far from my mind! However, following the birth of my own children, I realised the big hole in my skills and, in 2016 embarked on the two year Diploma in Paediatric Acupuncture. I was very fortunate to have been taught by Julian Scott, a leading paediatric acupuncturist, who was very generous with his knowledge and vast experience in this amazing field. Further studies have included a course with Elissa Rossi in Paediatric Tuina, giving me the chance to use this skill in the treatment room and also teaching parents simple massage techniques they can carry out at home, to complement the treatment I am giving.
I treat a range of ages and conditions, using a combination of needles, moxa, laser treatment and Tuina massage, as well as giving advice, when appropriate.
