While travelling in China in 2002 I was first introduced to acupuncture and was amazed by what I saw. When I returned to Ireland I decided I wanted to pursue a career in Natural Medicine and after some research I began studying Acupuncture with the Acupuncture Foundation of Ireland for three years under Professor Jin Huide and Dr. Wu Jidong from the University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Nanjing.
After graduating I went back to China and I Completed Four Months of Post Graduate Clinical Training in Nanjing University Hospitals where I worked in four different hospitals and had the opportunity to learn from some of the best Physicians of this medicine.
I have continued my post graduate training completing a diploma in TuiNa (Chinese Medical Massage) with Dr. Meng of Lincoln University and studied Chinese Patent Herbs with Professor Jin Huide.
I am a registered acupuncturist with the Acupuncture Foundation Professional Association (AFPA) one of the longest established governing bodies of Acupuncture in this country.
After four years of clinical experience I still find myself in awe at the power of Acupuncture. I continue to study at every opportunity with various experts in this field of medicine both here in Ireland and from across Europe.
I practice Qigong which is a Chinese therapeutic method using posture, movement, breathing and meditation to improve one’s health and human potential.
Outside of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine and enjoy cycling, hill walking and travelling.
