Feeling like  you've lost your mojo, acupuncture aims to balance your body, restoring vitality and get up and go.  You do not have to have a medical diagnosis to benefit from acupuncture. I have many patients who see me regularly for maintenance treatment and dealing with the stressful lives that many of us lead.

Women's Health

From period pain to menopause acupuncture is used to support you to reach your full potential and is safe to use alongside IVF and in natural pregnancy.  I have had the privilege of seeing many women through their fertility  journey, nothing makes me happier than supporting people to achieve their dreams.

Mental Health
