I am a fully qualified traditional acupuncturist working from clinics in London (Marylebone) and Letchworth Garden City (Hertfordshire).
I first encountered acupuncture as an academic living and working in China. Having grown up in Germany, where there is a strong tradition of holistic medicine, I was immediately intrigued. Upon returning to the UK and experiencing the life-changing benefits of regular acupuncture treatment, I was inspired to become an acupuncturist myself.
Having completed a three-year training course at The Acupuncture Academy in Leamington Spa, I was awarded a Distinction in the Professional Licentiate in Acupuncture. My studies covered all aspects of Chinese medical and acupuncture theory, with a focus on the Five Element approach. Five Element Acupuncture considers a person’s immediate symptoms, as well as addressing wider issues that interfere with health, harmony and balance.
I am a tutor at The Acupuncture Academy in Leamington Spa, where I teach clinical skills. From 2016-19, I worked as an Accreditation Officer for three years for the British Acupuncture Accreditation Board (BAAB), which fosters and monitors educational standards for UK-based acupuncture training programmes.
As a member of the British Acupuncture Council I adhere to the Council’s Codes of Safe Practice and Professional Conduct. BAcC members are also registered with the Professional Standards Authority, a body set up to regulate health and social care providers that is accountable to Parliament.
My clinics are licensed by Westminster and North Hertfordshire District Council respectively; I hold full medical malpractice and public/products liability insurance cover.
