Having cream tea in Cornwall – June 2021
A few months ago, I celebrated a special birthday – my 50th! (July 2021) Check out this page, If you wish to find out more about me.
I feel so lucky to be enjoying good health, a job I love, meaningful and loving human connections, and a passion for life in general.
I’ve been practising Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncture for 16 years (the last 10 here in York) in countries all over the world, including onboard a cruise ship.
It’s more than a job for me, it’s a vocation, and I find immense pleasure and satisfaction in supporting people on their path back to optimum health.
For me, good health and graceful ageing are not about popping pills or using the latest anti-ageing creams.
Healthy ageing involves building resilience to stress, eating well (most of the time. Not all of the time! Nobody is perfect!), enjoying regular movement and exercise, having loving and positive interactions with people, animals and nature, and finding joy and purpose in what you do.
I haven’t always been an Acupuncturist! Back in my early twenties I worked as a flight attendant for British Midland (based in London). After a few years, I moved here to York to study Art History at York University.
My next adventure, in my early thirties, was in Japan where I worked as a Languages teacher (Italian, English and French). It was there that I had my first experience with acupuncture. A colleague recommended I see an Acupuncturist for help with low energy and managing stress.
I was sceptical at first – especially as the practitioner was blind! – but after the first treatment I was a complete convert. After a course of treatments, the fatigue vanished and I was soon back to my usual optimistic, energetic self.
In my mid-thirties I decided to move to Australia and retrain as a Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncturist.
And so began my journey into the world of natural medicine. Over the years I’ve studied Chinese herbs, Bowen therapy, nutrition, basic QiGong, the concepts of Functional Medicine, and much more. It is this combination of modalities that influence my treatments, support my own health and wellbeing, and keep me looking – and more importantly, feeling! – younger than my years.
There are many types of acupuncture, including facial or cosmetic acupuncture. I do not practise cosmetic acupuncture. I instead focus on holistic, traditional Chinese medical acupuncture which has an impact on the entire body (and mind), and not just the face.
Also, a few wrinkles and grey hairs are not to be feared! Getting older is a privilege denied to too many people. I strongly believe in embracing graceful ageing, and focusing on optimising whole health – mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical.
We all want to continue enjoying life as we age, so here are my top tips for healthful ageing:
