The Hayling Clinic remains open and I am continuing to work there as usual on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons by appointment. See the Acupuncture page for more information.
Pilates classes are likely to resume shortly.
I worked as a solicitor in central London for most of my career and like many people, first turned to acupuncture out of desperation. I was so fed up of feeling ill all the time and, while Western medicine helped with acute symptoms, I wanted to get to the root of the problem.
I first had treatment to help with migraines. The beneficial effect it had impressed me so much that I left my successful legal career and retrained as an acupuncturist.
The training takes 3 years at degree level and includes studying Traditional Chinese Medicine as well as some aspects of Western medicine. I am also qualified in facial cosmetic and auricular (ear) acupuncture.
Also, I experienced back pain for many years before discovering Pilates. Practising Pilates has prevented me from requiring further spinal surgery and from suffering daily pain.
You can see that I have good reason to be enthusiastic about what I do!
I am fully insured, a member of The Acupuncture Society and a member of The Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA), so you can be confident that I comply with the professional standards required of those bodies.
