While the COVID restrictions have been completely relaxed in England, I would like to reassure the many people I treat every week who are in the high risk category that I will continue applying the strict safety protocol I have been using for the last 12 months.
I will continue to ask everyone I treat to do the following:
I apologise to those who don't agree with continuing with these measures but I have a responsibility towards many people I see regularly who are vulnerable and have compromised immunity, and who rely on me to keep them as safe as I can.
Please get in touch to discuss anything about your symptoms and treatment.
Herbal medicine consultations will continue to be offered remotely.
Wishing you health and peace in this turbulent times.

A thorough assessment of your past and present health applying Traditional Chinese Medicine - TCM principles, results in an individual diagnosis which serves as the basis for your personal treatment plan. You will be given life-style and dietary advice and will be offered the most suitable treatments to your present condition and constitution.
Different Acupuncture systems can be used to address a variety of physical, emotional and mental symptoms ranging from chronic pain to depression and anxiety. Each system uses specific points located in the body, scalp, or ear. Moxibustion is often added to increase the efficacy of treatments.
Combinations of herbs specifically designed for you may be the most effective way to deal with deep-seated, long-term, or stubborn symptoms. Chinese Herbal Medicine (CHM) is the most important treatment modality used in China as part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)
Deep tissue massage is offered not as a sole treatment but as a manipulative technique used alongside Acupuncture for the treatment of stubborn chronic pain from long-term damage or injury.
Gentle yet powerful, Reiki can be used alone or combined with Acupuncture or other treatments to induce relaxation and peace, and to enhance the effects of other treatments.
There are tens of thousands of people from different parts of the world living in the Refugee camps of Lesbos Island in Greece. All of them have lived through traumatic experiences which forced them to leave their homes, and are now living in dire conditions in overcrowded refugee camps. Sandra gives cares to them by Acupuncture and holistic Chinese Medicine treatments.
