A qualified, experienced therapist to take care of you
Our work involves rebalancing the body and restoring health by providing specific treatment tailored to the patient as an individual using a range of different approaches.
My interests and specialisms span different areas of dermatology – acne, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, perioral dermatitis, allergies -and psychosomatic illnesses.
I work in French, English, Spanish and Farsi.
A UNIQUE APPROACH TO MEDICINE
The unique aspect of Chinese medicine is that it provides a powerful and independent system of diagnosis that looks beyond symptoms to find their underlying cause.
Traditional Chinese medicine seeks to restore this balance through treatment tailored to the individual.
