COVID-19

The main difference between the usual care and 'post COVID-19 care' is that direct contact is maintained to minimum.
Therefore, the following changes to the normal practice will take place:

At least 15 minutes gap between patients is kept, so the premises can be sanitised, and fresh air allowed in.

You will be asked to put on your mask before entering the premises and wash your hands immediately before stepping into the clinic. Obviously, I will also be following all health and safety procedures.

Please bring your own towel.

Payment will be arranged by bank transfer or credit card at least 24 hours before each appointment.

Welcome to my web site!

I have been offering acupuncture and oriental herbalism since 2002.

My main area of interest is women health. This includes period pains, fertility, IVF support, Pregnancy support, preparation for labour, emotional issues etc.

I am fully trained in both conventional medicine (gaining a Doctor of Medicine qualification and a licence to practice medicine abroad in 2014) and Traditional Chinese medicine in the UK (gaining a licence and a Post Graduate Certificate).

I am a registered member of The British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) and The Acupuncture Fertility Network (AFN).

Outside of the clinic, I am involved in acupuncture education as a clinic supervisor in the City College of Acupuncture in London as member of the Accreditation Committee (AC) of the British Accreditation Board (BAAB), and as a registered supervisor/ mentor to qualified practitioners.

I offer acupuncture, acupressure, ear acupuncture, Chinese herbs, cupping and electro-acupuncture.

About Acupuncture

Originating in China more than 2,000 years ago, acupuncture is one of the oldest and most commonly used medical procedures in the world.

The word 'acupuncture' describes a variety of procedures involving stimulation of anatomical points on the body by using a variety of techniques.
The acupuncturist exerts pressure or inserts ultra fine needles at chosen points to stimulate the body’s own healing response and restore its natural balance.

Modern research explores the scientific mechanisms which acupuncture elicit. Acupuncture triggers many physiological effects. For example, recent research shows that the insertion of an acupuncture needle into the skin disrupts the branching point of special nerves called C fibres. These C fibres transmit sensory information to the brain.

Today, acupuncture is considered an effective, natural and increasingly popular form of health care that is being used by people from a wide range of cultural and social backgrounds.

You are welcome to come to see me in Whetstone, North London.
