I initially trained as a therapist, working in the health industry for many years, specialising in skin treatments and various body therapies, including sports and deep tissue massage. I went on to complete my Cert Ed and became a College Lecturer teaching massage in a further education college. Following this, I taught for a private skincare company as a Senior Instructor for 8 years, travelling nationally and internationally, before setting up and running the York School. My role included training therapists on how to treat a wide variety of skin conditions, as well as teaching stress therapy and deep tissue massage. After taking a break to have my daughter, I decided to retrain using my knowledge of the body I had already gained to develop a deeper understanding and to be able to treat a wide variety of health conditions. I have a BSc (Hons) in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, I also lecture part-time at the Northern College of Acupuncture.
On a personal level, I had Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal treatment for IBS and was very happy with the results and that made me interested in Acupuncture. I also wanted to be able to treat patients myself, rather then referring people to other specialists.
