My Approach

I practice acupuncture as gently and effectively as I can. Japanese Acupuncture is also known as Meridian Therapy because our intention as practitioners is to influence the flow of Ki in the meridians through refined and sophisticated needling and moxibustion techniques. I incorporate moxibustion (applying heat to acupoints) and shiatsu to enhance my treatments and create a deeper sense of calm and relaxation.

This approach is very well received by men and women, young and old and the very sensitive. I am able to assess how your body is responding to treatment during a session so that I can provide you with the best results. For me, it is the ideal progression from my initial training in Japanese bodywork as palpation is so important in traditional Japanese acupuncture, historically being a profession of the blind.

I aim to provide you with the most appropriate treatment combined with suggestions for a moderate lifestyle which incorporates appropriate exercise and diet, and sufficient rest. This can help bring about a deeper sense of relaxation, an improvement in energy levels, a reduction in pain levels and a healthier approach to the stressors in your life.

I believe acupuncture, moxibustion and shiatsu to be extremely supportive and nurturing for the body, mind and spirit, providing flexibile approaches for emotional issues such as anxiety or insomnia as well as for more physical issues such as back pain or frozen shoulder. Also pre-conceptual support, during pregnancy and for labour preparation.
