DEEP RIVER ACUPUNCTURE
I studied my BSC in Acupuncture at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine. The training there is unique to other colleges as it teaches both 5 Element Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) as an ‘integrated’ system. I find this approach to be very powerful in its ability to address people’s specific needs from different angles.
5 Element acupuncture uses the 5 natural elements, Fire, Water, Earth, Metal and Wood to represent the different emotional drives working within our body. It concerns its self with finding which of these emotions/elements are the root of disharmony within us. By treating the cause rather than the symptom a platform is created for a longer lasting and more profound change.
In some instances, especially acute cases, the TCM method is more appropriate. TCM builds around Yin Yang Theory and the interplay between Chinese Organs and Substances. It can be a powerful tool for change. By incorporating both schools of acupuncture I am able to provide a comprehensive treatment tailored to each individual's needs.
Currently I am training in Tuina, Chinese energetic massage, which is believed to be the oldest system of bodywork. Tuina targets specific parts of the body to remove blockages and bring Qi to the area. I look forward to deepening my knowledge of the body and bring this new discipline into my practice.
Outside of this clinic I volunteer as an Acupuncturist at St Josephs Hospice with the Neurological Support group.
