Meet Vivienne   

BSc Econ ( Hons), MBAcC, MATCM.

I have spent many years studying the most effective acupuncture techniques available in the world today.


I have also studied with some of the most highly regarded Chinese medicine practitioners inside and outside of China, including Dr Tan and Professor Shulan Tang of Nanjing University. The latter having an impressive herbal medicine lineage stretching back to the chief physician of the last Emperor of China(!).


My focus is on the study of traditional techniques, not widely known in the West, such as the Balance method, distal acupuncture for pain relief and Master Tung points. 

I have particular interest in treating chronic health problems, anxiety and depression, fertility problems, repeat miscarriages and the treatment of chronic pain. Of these, several I consider to be my areas of experise such as, Fertility & Chronic Pain, of which I go into some depth in two articles to be found in the 'Specialisms' tab above.
