I decided to train in acupuncture after doing Tai Ji for many years and discovering first hand the beneficial effects this and acupuncture had on my own health. I started practicing as an acupuncturist in 1997 and since then I have been on a journey of discovery that has led to further training in areas such as Bio-energetic testing, Bio-resonance therapy, Chinese Herbal medicine, Kinesiology, Naturopathy, Iridology and Functional Diagnostic Medicine. This has broadened my understanding of both the energetic and physical causes of ill health and I use diagnostic methods and treatment protocols taken from both eastern and western traditions. People have unique medical histories. One person's symptoms may be similar to another person's, but the underlying causes may be very different. Identifying the causes of a person's ill health helps me treat the person and not just the symptoms, as only in this way can health be truly restored. Treatments focus on correcting imbalances in the persons energy system and removing any impediments to the optimal functioning of the organs and body systems. This may include acupuncture, herbal formulas, nutrition and diet, celloid minerals, detoxes, cleanses and lifestyle changes.
