Dr Shelley Berlinsky - education and experience
I have trained extensively and gained both a diploma in Chinese medicine and a doctorate in Western medicine (MD, LicAc, LicOHM). In fact I started my professional journey as a Western medical doctor specialising in psychiatry.
After a few years practicing Western medicine, I decided to retrain as a Chinese practitioner and in the last 20 years I practice only acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine.
I have conducted research in complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) and I am a senior lecturer in the City College of Acupuncture in London.
I am registered with The British Acupuncture Council (BAcC). I am also an associate practitioner of the Arthritic Association and adhere to the conduct of the Register of Chinese Herbal Medicine (RCHM).
I am experienced at treating pain and mental conditions. My special interest is female health and infertility (including acupuncture alongside IVF cycle and acupuncture during pregnancy). I also specialise in treating skin conditions with herbal medicine.
