I'm a nutritional therapist and acupuncturist. I draw on traditional Chinese Medicine and naturopathic nutrition to give my patients in-depth on-going support.
I specialise in male and female fertility, pregnancy and women's hormonal support - especially period problems like pain, sleep and mood disorders, irregular and absent cycles, fertility, assisted fertility and with any menopausal
I back up my treatments, if needed, with functional testing - hormonal panels, allergy profiles, stool tests - dietary advice, supplement plans, recipe advice in addition to diagnosis via pulse, tongue and meridian diagnosis.
I also see teenagers, children and both men and women for a wide range of nutrition related health issues, low mood, sleep issues, allergies, digestion, pain and weight management.
I've been working as an alternative therapist for over 18 years - I first became interested in nutrition and acupuncture when I had my own adrenal fatigue and stress related health issues in the 1990's - by learning about meditation, yoga and changing my lifestyle and diet I was able to reverse my health problems and since then I have been using my knowledge, training and expertise as a vision therapist, massage therapist, acupuncturist and nutritionist to help others.
