Therapies for Adults
Acupuncture is a branch of Chinese Medicine that can be traced back more than 2000 years. It is based on the principle that a blockage or disturbance in the flow of the body’s life energy (Qi) can lead to illnesses.
The aim of acupuncture treatment is to restore and maintain the body’s physical and emotional balance. The treatment involves the insertion of very fine (hair-thin) needles into specific points on the body to regulate the flow of Qi, the body’s vital energy, stimulate a natural healing response, and promote relaxation. In other words, acupuncture can allow your mind and body to be in sync, so you can thrive!!

I have been a practising acupuncturist since 2014, working in both the UK and France. I have a diploma in Traditional Chinese Acupuncture from IEATC and a Bachelor of Clinical Medical Biology from Tehran University in Iran. I completed my clinical training at Beijing International Acupuncture Training Centre in China in 2014, where I specialised in treating women suffering from gynaecological disorders. I have also taken a wide range of courses in Oriental Medicine and Neuroscience.
I follow the wisdom of Chinese philosophy and Taoism in my daily life. I practice Qi Gong and Tai Qi, and eat according to the wisdom of Chinese medicine. All of these things contribute to my skills as a practitioner.
I have experience of treating a wide range of physical and mental-emotional disorders in men and women of all ages.
