I have been practicing acupuncture since 1989, following study at the London School of Acupuncture (now Westminster University), and subsequently in Nanjing, China where I worked in a busy teaching hospital.
I set up and was co-director at the Birmingham Centre for Chinese Medicine from 1994 to 2004 during which I came to appreciate how effective acupuncture can be for a wide variety of conditions and helped many people to regain their health and wellbeing.
At around this time acupuncture education in the UK was developing within the university sector, and in 2004 I designed and wrote the BSc honours Acupuncture degree for the University of East London and was the Course Leader and senior lecturer there from 2004 to 2014. Working as an acupuncture educator also enriched my perspective on how to refine my own private practice.
“I am convinced that acupuncture can have an important role to play in maintaining good health especially when we are living longer but confronting chronic illnesses for which there is sometimes little remedy. I am always keen to see the evidence base for acupuncture expand so that we can promote best practice.”
Over the years, I have developed a problem-solving insight and will work closely with you to ascertain how acupuncture can advance you toward better health.
