I started my career as a medical doctor. During this time I saw the benefits of acupuncture in patients who were not responding to western medicine. This sparked my interest in acupuncture and later, when my children were young, I went back to college and studied Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). I have now been practising acupuncture for 7 years.
I ran an acupuncture pain clinic for NHS patients in Malton for 5 years, treating patients suffering from chronic pain. I also do some occasional work for the Northern College of Acupuncture in York where I trained. This involves running the clinics and teaching undergraduate acupuncture students there.
I am an accredited member of the British Acupuncture Council, the main regulatory body for acupuncturists in the UK. This means I practise under a strict professional code and am committed to ensuring all patients receive the highest standard professional care.
Acupuncture takes an holistic approach to your problems and can help with a whole range of conditions. It is increasingly being used to promote healthy balance and a feeling of well-being. It is also used as an adjunct to western medicine where it can be used alongside conventional treatment or to help people feeling the effects of more serious treatment such as chemotherapy.

The British Acupuncture Council is also a useful place to visit.
