PhD (Immunology), BSc (Hons), LicAC, Dip TuiNa, MBAcC
Acupuncturist, TuiNa therapeutic massage and Chinese Dietary therapist in North West London since 2005.
Equilibre means balance in French; For over 10 years I have striven to provide caring and compassionate treatments to help people return to their equilibre, at first through Tai Chi (teaching since 2002), then combining Acupuncture, TuiNa and Chinese Nutritional therapy in treatment plans that are unique to each patient.
Along the years, I realized that finding their point of balance, be it physical and/or emotional, gives the individual the freedom to choose where they want to go next, from starting to train again, having a child or embarking on the life journey they were born for. What would you do if you were free of disease?
After doing 14 years of medical research on the immune system, I fell in love with Chinese Medicine because it simply works and provides a very coherent view of a person and their dis-ease, once you get over the strange language. Western style research is only now getting the tools to validate it and explain how Chinese Medicine works. Exciting times! My scientific background allows me to bridge the two approaches and take the holistic approach one step further, truly integrating Mind, Body and Soul, Western and Eastern views to provide the best treatment for the patient.
Over the years, I have worked with people with a wide variety of conditions, sometimes well defined by Western standard, such as fertility issues, depression or pain relief, and sometimes more vague, such as tiredness or a sense of malaise. Being holistic, Chinese Medicine tries to establish the connections between all your symptoms and their cause, understand your landscape, at all levels. It does not really matter where we start from, as all aspects of your health will improve. That is the beauty of it.
Call me now to discuss this further, I offer 20 mins free consultations at Gracelands Yard.
I am also passionate about teaching Chinese Medicine and passing on the skills and knowledge to patients during classes or consultation, as well as students. I am the Course Leader and a lecturer on the degree level Acupuncture course at the City College of Acupuncture. Teaching is a great way of sharpening your skills, all to the patients benefit!
