More about me

My passion for Chinese medicine stems from over 20 year’s participation in Chinese martial arts and my own positive experiences of acupuncture when Western medicine had failed.

Throughout my martial arts I have used many sports injury and fighting liniments, and have a fascination with the design and use of them. I produce all of my own liniments which I uses in my clinics.

I completed my degree (BSc) in Acupuncture and a Diploma in Tui Na massage at the London College of Traditional Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine (LCTA). I holds an additional qualification in Qi Gong (Chinese exercise and breathing techniques) and have undertaken specialist training and education in the treatment of sports injuries, fertility treatments, cosmetic acupuncture and auricular acupuncture.

I have a thriving treatment clinic, also offer classes in both Pak Mei Kung Fu and Qi Gong.

I was until recently a member of the pre and postmatch treatment team at New Ash Green Rugby Club in Kent.
