I am passionate about helping others to improve their well-being by offering relaxing and rejuvenating treatments that nurture the self and lead to long term health solutions. I believe in practicing holistically and focusing on both your physical and emotional needs, establishing balance between the mind and body. I hold a BSc Hons Degree in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine from the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine. As part of my practice I combine the techniques of Traditional Chinse Medicine with Five Element acupuncture and believe in treating the underlying cause of the symptoms, helping to lead to a more permanent health solution.
I offer personalised treatments in the South Devon area that address the needs of the individual and incorporate my knowledge and training in Chinese Medicine. I have also been practicing massage and reflexology for over 10 years and can tailor and combine treatments to suit you.
I came to being a therapist after many years of experiencing the benefits of acupuncture, massage and reflexology first hand. I had been working as a magazine publisher for over 10 years and finally decided to take the plunge and leave a pressurised career to pursue my love of holistic therapies. It has been an exciting and life changing journey and one that is constantly surprising me.
Over the years I have gained extensive training in both fields. As well as my BSc Hons Degree in Acupuncture and Chinese medicine I also hold an IEB diploma in reflexology and ITEC and MTI level 4 diplomas in holistic massage as well as qualifications in deep tissue massage, maternity reflexology, pregnancy and labour massage and spinal reflexology. I am also a member of a number of professional bodies including the BACC, AOR, CTha and CNHC. As I am on the CNHC's register as a recognised therapist clients holding private medical insurance may be able to claim against the cost of certain treatments (please check with your medical provider). As a therapist, I believe in continual personal development and am constantly seeking to expand my learning.
I am currently practicing in South Devon and run clinics in Ashburton, Kingsbridge and Dartmouth. Please feel free to contact me to discuss appointment times.
