Looking back with hindsight I can now see how the disharmony in my own body (with digestive issues) was a wake up call and message to change the way that I was living. Mostly to change the work I was doing. So I headed down a path of discovery and healing for my self and found that acupuncture and lifestyle changes helped to make a huge difference to my health and lead me on to change my career.
I left my work in IT to study acupuncture in 2007 and when I graduated in 2010 I set out to build my practice in North London. It was at this time that I went back to the skills and knowledge from the 15+ years working with technology to build my own website and optimise it so that local people could find me. This helped kick start my practice and I've watched it steadily grow over the last 9 years.
I love working locally and have found a wonderful community here, even in a city as large and diverse as London. I also love how the theory and practice of acupuncture can often help to untangle the messages that our body sends when it is out of balance. It is always rewarding when patients start to see these changes for themselves over a course of treatment.
Alongside my acupuncture practice I also run Swish IT (https://swish-it.com) helping other acupuncturists and wellness practitioners with their websites and technology, to help them grow a business that they love. Two very different businesses but a balance for me that feels really good.
