I originally studied Fine Art and completed a BA in 2004. After running an artist’s studio for some years I decided to further my interest in acupuncture, natural science, martial arts, and qi gong by perusing a career in East Asian Medicine.
I have now been working full-time as an acupuncturist, herbalist and tui-na practitioner for the last 10 years! I completed a BSc(Hons) in Acupuncture and a MSc(Hons) in Chinese Herbal Medicine from Westminster University.
I have taught acupuncture students in Westminster University’s polyclinic for five years. I also worked as a teacher of East Asian Medicine Theory and Anatomy at the City College. In addition I hold a qualification as a Qi gong teacher and enjoy cycling, playing music and painting in my free time.
I continue with my professional development by studying with master doctors from around the world.
This is a short list of the teachers that have been most influential on my practice:
Felicity Moir – clinical practice and patient care in East Asian medicine.
