I studied acupuncture to degree Level for 4 years at the internationally renowned College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading.
My initial training comprised of training in Traditional Chinese Medicine alongside Five Element acupuncture which are the most common styles practiced in the UK.
After graduating I discovered other styles of acupuncture that transformed the way I practised and the results I was getting with my patients. I have studied Master Tung acupuncture, (a traditional family style of acupuncture) with Philip Weeks and Susan Johnson. Because of the benefits I have witnessed using the Master Tung approach, this is now the main style I use in my clinic.
Tung acupuncture uses fewer needles, and incorporates many unique points specific to this style.
Needles are placed distally to where the problem may be, and can often result in immediate changes and pain reduction – often within seconds of needle insertion.
