Certified and Licensed Acupuncturist (LAc.)
Over the last 15 years, I have treated thousands of patients as a natural healthcare provider in England, now I am home in the USA and ready to bring acupuncture's effectiveness to my friends and family here in SE Idaho.
As a board certified (NCCAOM) and Licensed Acupuncturist, you can rest assured that I have studied an advanced degree program in the UK that has equipped me with a thorough understanding of this complex system of medicine. I have treated thousands of patients, like you, who are seeking effective, natural and lasting relief for their health concerns. Whether it be for serious conditions like, stroke, Parkinson's and Alzheimer's or hormonal imbalances that have impaired your fertility or quality of life, I know that acupuncture is helpful and effective medicine. I have seen it work wonders.
I am devoted to my craft and have worked hard, learning all I can, to master this profound and philosophical medicine. I have completed numerous advanced post-graduate trainings with a variety of teachers and systems: Dr. Tan's Balance Method, NatureChild Postgraduate certificate, Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture. Most recently I trained extensively with John Tindall, who is a qigong master, herbalist and acupuncturist, as well as a profoundly talented Shaman. I also hold recognised qualifications in Reflexology, Aromatherapy, Counselling, and Massage.
My style of treatment is mainly TCM-based as taught by my professors from Beijing, but I bring together elements of all my years of training and experience to create the optimal healing experience and environment for each individual.
Qigong or Energy Work is another passion of mine that actually came before I trained as an acupuncturist. I have been studying and teaching tai chi and qigong in a variety of classes and workshop venues across the world. Now I am teaching twice a week online to a few dedicated students in the UK and locally.
I believe in serving my community and gave of my time and expertise volunteering for World Medicine providing treatments in a SW London community centre in the aftermath of the tragedy at Grenfell Towers. I served as a board member of ACMAC (Association of Community and Multi-bed Acupuncture clinics).
I currently run a low cost drop-in auricular acupuncture clinic every Monday in Pocatello's Station Square on Main offering the NADA protocol which is helpful for stress reduction and addiction recovery work.
In the wake of Covid-19, I relocated from London, England to Pocatello Idaho. While I miss the big city, I now can enjoy the vast nature that surrounds me here in SE Idaho and am in awe of the many outdoor pursuits that I can enjoy!
How I See Dis-ease
Life throws us endless challenges, with many highs and lows. We all will face illness and discomfort at some point, so best to find intelligent ways to deal calmly and work with our body's natural capacity for healing rather than suppress symptoms with drugs. No need for a hammer when a small tap will do the job. I'm here to activate your body's innate healing wisdom. Move you out of a state of dis - ease into a more comfortable and easy state of being.
I have many tools to help you find more flow and clarity as you journey onwards, but I also am happy to refer patients for whom my skills are not the best fit.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you as you find a path to greater vitality and health.
