I have been full time practice from 1984 in North London where I founded the Camden Practice and since 1985 I have been running The York Clinic, offering osteopathy and acupuncture in Woking, Surrey.
My professional expertise is somewhat unique in that my rich training and experience enable me to draw upon three medical disciplines: osteopathy, acupuncture and naturopathy. This offers the patient an extensive range of treatments to achieve clinically effective results.
I attend regular professional development seminars and I work hard keeping up to date with leading edge treatments in acupuncture and dry needling.
I also attend conferences at hospitals to stay up to date with advances in conventional treatment for some of the more common conditions.
