Who am I?

I’ve been helping women with health and fertility issues through my expertise in acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine for almost 20 years. 


I’m here to help you with all aspects of women’s health and hormonal concerns. From fertility to pregnancy, postpartum recovery to menopause, and beyond.  Supporting everything from menstrual pain, headaches, stress, anxiety, and sleep concerns.  I can also help with male fertility issues using evidence-based treatments to improve semen quality and quantity.


I studied for a five-year BSc (Hons) degree in traditional Chinese medicine spending six months in Beijing training in two of the city’s teaching hospitals, where I also received a Bachelor of Medicine and have been expanding my knowledge and training ever since.

My background has been predominantly in the area of fertility and IVF and have spent the last 18 years helping couples across the North East, UK, and further afield build their families and supporting those families beyond.


My training in Western diagnostic techniques means that I can work alongside any Western medical treatments you might also be receiving. I also enjoy sharing my skills as a yoga teacher, sound therapist, and naturopathic practitioner.

My product range was initially developed to support my IVF patients, for each stage of the IVF cycle.  However, due to the nature of Chinese medicine, I began to use the range more and more with my menopause patients and other issues whenever the picture fit.

How can I help?

Traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture can help boost female fertility, balance the hormones, and strengthen the body's ability to achieve and maintain a healthy pregnancy.

Traditional Chinese medicine can resolve the underlying issues of male infertility by improving sperm quantity, quality and increasing the success rate of assisted conception.

Acupuncture can act as a natural remedy to many of the ailments you might suffer during pregnancy, including morning sickness, heartburn, and constipation.

I’ll investigate all aspects of your health as fully as possible and provide a course of traditional treatments that will help resolve your health issues.

According to eastern traditions, the menstrual cycle should be pain-free and uneventful. By using the Chinese diagnostic system it’s possible to find and treat the root cause of disorders that prevent a normal and regular menstrual flow.

As a Forrest Yoga teacher in training, I can help you improve your lifestyle, posture, and health through a regular yoga practice.

My Services

During your consultation we’ll discuss your full health history including your fertility journey so far, any medication and supplements you’re taking, and your diet and lifestyle. From here I’ll be able to give you bespoke fertility and health guidance.

Acupuncture is one of the most widely practiced complementary medical treatments in the UK.

I specialise in using acupuncture to improve the birth rates of women undergoing IVF or ICSI.

Chinese herbal medicine has been a key part of healthcare in Asia for thousands of years and is considered very effective at getting to the root of chronic and complex conditions. I specialise in using traditional medicines to increase female and male fertility.
