I trained as a traditional acupuncturist at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading. This integrates two main styles of Chinese acupuncture – 8 principle/Yin Yang with 5 Element.
Whilst I focus mainly on Chinese Medicine acupuncture treatment, I also often bring in Western trigger point acupuncture for painful, physical problems and holistic massage.
I value the quiet and tranquility that Iwood provides and the natural support it gives to our treatments here.
