My journey into the fascinating world of acupuncture began with a chronic pain syndrome. My first acupuncture treatment left me wondering where the pain went, and why I lived with it for so long, and over time I learned to take responsibility for my own health, to become informed and skilled at looking after myself.
Acupuncture is not just an effective treatment for chronic complicated conditions, it is an empowering journey.
I want to play my part in changing the culture of complimentary therapy, away from the exclusive clinic accessible only to those who can afford the time or money, towards an affordable model, based in the community, where people from all backgrounds can access professional, ethical treatments.
