Acupuncture is a system of healing which has been practiced in China and other Eastern countries for thousands of years. Acupuncture is used both to treat specific symptoms and illnesses and as a preventative treatment as it boosts the body’s immune system. Acupuncture is particularly useful for treatment of pain and may help with back pain, joint pains, muscular pains, migraine, and even period pains. It has also been used to treat problems such as sinusitis, hay fever, irritable bowel, and nausea. Acupuncture treatment may assist you in getting pregnant, whether you wish to conceive naturally or need to have fertility treatment.
My experience of Acupuncture began 25 years ago in California when I was suffering from severe abdominal pain due to pelvic surgery. I was treated by a Dr. Weiss, a doctor who had studied for many years in China. Dr. Weiss successfully treated my condition using a combination of Acupuncture and herbal medicine. On my return home to Chicago, the western Doctors were amazed at the results.
In 1997 I returned to live in England to discover one of the best Acupuncture Colleges in the World on my doorstep – ‘The Traditional College Of Five Element Acupuncture’, founded by Professor J.R. Worsley – needless to say I was inspired. Since then I have gone onto achieve:
- BA Hon’s in Acupuncture
- Member of the British Acupuncture Council
- Accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist
- Zita West Accredited Acupuncturist
My particular area of interests are:
- Acupuncture for Depression
- Acupuncture for Pain Management

I have clinics both in Coventry and Leamington Spa.
