Having worked in the NHS firstly in nursing then in midwifery I decided to change course which allowed me to bring my previous knowledge into the new skill of acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine in a different setting from the NHS. I qualified in Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture in 1999 at Westminster University London. Since then I have gone on to develop practices firstly in London and then in Norfolk. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) of which acupuncture is a part has steadily become more common place and more accepted as a system of treatment having developed its own high standards of training and safety along with ongoing research to validate the treatments and develop new ones. My role is to enable you to gain the benefits of this system of medicine and to bridge the gap between eastern and western medicine.
