I’m a fully licensed Acupuncturist specialising in a variety of holistic treatment services. I regard each patient as a whole, rather than an illness to be defeated.
I believe in nurturing, rather than battling against the body.
Originally from Slovakia, I moved to the UK in 2012 to enrol in a three-year study of Acupuncture.
The course consisted of both Chinese Medicine and Western medicine, in order to understand a pathology from both perspectives and recognise the most efficient treatment in time.
I graduated from International College of Oriental Medicine in 2015 with a Bachelor's degree in Acupuncture.
Since graduation I have practised at an Osteopathy and Pilates clinic, where I gained invaluable skill in treating a range of musculo-skeletal problems. In order to broaden my expertise, I also volunteered in the UK as well as Slovakia, treating a wide variety of illnesses and disorders.
History and Methods
First mentions of physicians using a highly developed systems of medicine date back to 500 B.C. China.
It is assumed that at first, stone needles were used for early acupuncture, and were later replaced with gold and silver.
The theory behind this ancient system of medicine has been written and compiled to form The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine, a book supposedly written by the Yellow Emperor himself. It explains in great detail the organisation of the body, its working and functions of its parts, as well as its relation to the outside world. In Chinese medicine, everything in human body is connected, just as well as every human body is connected to its surroundings - one influences another.
This belief is what shaped and crafted Chinese medicine to the form we see today. The practitioner uses a holistic approach to each and every issue, incorporating it to their diagnosis like a jigsaw puzzle, creating a bigger picture.
The system of Stems and Branches Acupuncture reveals patient's constitution, the genetic setup they were born with, and mental make up which forms their personality.
This then enables the practitioner to find a root cause of patient's problem, and help each patient individually to overcome their issues in a way most suited to their needs.
Everyone is fighting their battles.
However big or small they may be, my purpose is to enable you to win them, in your own time, without judgement.
