I base my classes on students' needs, whether that be teachings on the fundamentals theory of Chinese medicine or focusing more on the practical / clinical side. If someone is coming from a martial arts / tai chi / alternative medicine background I can also gear classes towards those interests. I aim to create a relaxed but also engaged environment for learning and welcome students of all levels and backgrounds.
I trained in acupuncture and tuina at Zhejiang Chinese Medical University in China before completing a Masters of Science in Chinese Herbal Medicine at the University of Westminster. I've been practicing for 10 years and also run a YouTube channel 'Anthoneedles' about Chinese medicine. In China I worked in wards treating chronic, paediatric, gynaecological and musculo-skeletal issues along with many others.
