Twickenham clinic - Saturday mornings

Appointments 10am to 2pm

New in Town:

i have recently learnt the art of Gua Sha, Facial Cupping and Facial Acupuncture. This treatment seems to have the same effect as Botox (without chemicals) according to my clients!

The combination of these technqiues can also help smooth facial contours and improve facial appearance, fine lines, sagging, wrinkles and colour.


I am now a student of Auricular Acupuncture and am very much enjoying my practice. I am now taking bookings for reduced fee sessions.

Do get in touch to book a session.

Complimentary medicine & alternative health are becoming more and more popular  but what has been noticed as the difference between east and west is  that western cultures just needs scientific proof rather then going  ahead and trying out new things.

"Shiatsu Shown to Improve Health"

Recent research carried out by the University of Leeds on behalf of the  European Shiatsu Federation establishes that Shiatsu massage treatment:

Improves health and wellbeing

  • Is safe
  • Can benefit specific conditions
  • Suggests a role for Shiatsu in public health

The study, carried out by Professor A.F. Long of the School of Healthcare,  took place in Austria, Spain and the UK in 2006 and 2007
948 clients  participated in the study where their experience of Shiatsu treatment  and the effects of it were studied over a period of 6 months.
Shiatsu like other oriental healthcare has been practiced for centuries and  aims primarily to promote wellbeing and to help prevent illness.  Treatment involved an energetic evaluation of the client’s current  condition and symptoms followed by stimulation of the meridian channels  using gentle pressure or fingers and palms. Shiatsu effects change in  the overall energy system and the client’s condition in a non-invasive  way.

Research Results:

  • Increased relaxation and a sense of calm
  • Being more energised
  • Being better able to cope
  • A reduction of symptoms of stress and tension
  • Improvement of problems with muscles and joints, including back-pain and postural  misalignments
  • Improvement of energy and reduction of fatigue
  • Overall improvement in, and confidence about health
  • Motivation to make positive lifestyle changes particularly with regard to diet and exercise
  • Improved psychological wellbeing
  • Changes to the use of conventional medicine and medication

Some Health Policy Implications
A potential role for Shiatsu in  public health is strongly suggested due to its ability to improve  general wellbeing, increase health awareness, and promote good health.
Most importantly, Shiatsu poses no significant risks to clients, the  positive benefits are maintained over time, and there is a reduction in  the use of conventional medicine, medication and working time lost due  to ill health. These are indicative of an added value and potential  economic benefit from Shiatsu treatment.
