Born in Ludlow in 1969, I grew up and schooled in the area and followed a theatrical career before retraining in holistic therapy. I studied Swedish massage, reflexology, sports event massage, Indian head massage and the management of activity injuries at the Shrewsbury College of Arts and Technology for four years. I began my clinical experience in Bromyard and Worcester and started my own clinic in Ludlow in 2006.
Around this time I began to study acupuncture and Chinese medicine at the College of Traditional Acupuncture, Warwick, and have completed my Licentiate and BA (Hons) degree to a high standard. I am now able to treat a diverse range of conditions, injuries and ailments.
As a member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists I am registered to practice all of my modalities and also chose to voluntarily regulate through the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council. I adhere to their codes of professional conduct as well as being in accordance with those codes of conduct set by the British Acupuncture Council. I am fully insured to practice all of my advertised disciplines to the professional standard required to ensure client safety when attending my clinic.
I am married with two children and now enjoy practising exclusively at my Ludlow clinic where I can concentrate on providing high quality treatments to visiting and local clients. I have specialised in women's health, including fertility and pregnancy, as well as treating psycho-emotional problems with acupuncture. I treat a lot of men and women of all ages for depression, stress and anxiety and have very successful results.
I am also capable of strong deep tissue massage and have helped many people with their muscular conditions, including back pain and various sporting injuries, helping them to manage and potentially recover in order that they can return to a normal lifestyle. I am also nearing completion of an Osteopathic degree and am capable and insured to ‘bone set’ in order to align any dysfunctional skeletal issues.

"A compassionate individual who was very capable in assessing and rehabilitating me after a very nasty mountain biking injury nearly stopped me from riding again..." DM, IT Consultant, Cleobury Mortimer
"We had given up the hope of having children, I felt it was my last chance to try acupuncture... I wish I'd gone sooner. I don't know how it worked but it did. I had five treatments and my husband and I conceived within two months. Two years on we look at our little boy and marvel. Thank you." LB, Richard's Castle
