I am a Registered Acupuncture Practitioner with the Chinese Medical Institute and Register (C.M.I.R.) and trained by Chinese doctors from Beijing University of Chinese Medicine and Pharmacology, treating many health problems, offering pain relief and stress relief. Also I specialise in Cosmetic Acupuncture registered with Cosmetic Acupuncture UK, the professional practitioner network. My other specialism is in treating allergies and food intolerance symptoms as a registered N.A.E.T practitioner. My practice is based in Totley, Sheffield, South Yorkshire.
My training in Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncture began in 1996. My first teacher, Dr John Heptonstall, lived and trained in Hong Kong for many years and is a well-known and respected teacher both in England and Hong Kong. John’s teaching was inspirational and a solid foundation on which to start my clinical practice.
Continuing with my training I completed a further Diploma in Chinese Healthcare and Acupuncture in 2010. The training included specialist advanced teaching of Chinese Dermatology, Infertility and Pain relief. I have since also completed studies in the most up to date research coming out of China to help cancer patients maintain their underlying health whilst undergoing conventional cancer treatments.
Many people suffer from allergies or food intolerance symptoms and want allergy testing or food intolerance testing. When I discovered N.A.E.T. (Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Techniques) I took the opportunity to train when Dr Devi Nambudripad set up training programmes in Europe in 2004 training in London, France, Belgium and Holland.
Cosmetic Acupuncture Specialist
As a specialist in Cosmetic Acupuncture, my interest in anti-aging and non-surgical cosmetic face-lift techniques has been a lifelong fascination with looking good and feeling healthy myself. Cosmetic acupuncture or “facial rejuvenation” is an up and coming alternative to cosmetic surgery and preferred by many as achieving a more natural youthful appearance and to be able to maintain it at a low cost and without side effects.
