I first pursued my passion in Oriental culture by undertaking Japanese studies in Cluj, Transylvania and then in Budapest, Hungary.
Shortly after moving to England 12 years ago, I undertook 4 years of study for a licentiate in acupuncture and naturopathy at the College of Naturopathic Medicine, London.
I have studied facial rejuvenation acupuncture with Radha Thambirajah and Anthony Kingston. I am constantly informing my understanding through research and refining my skills.
facial rejuvenation acupuncture & gua sha facial massage
My passion is to design individualised treatments.
According to traditional sources and my clinical experience the face is much more than just a superficial part but a reflection of what is going on inside.
My approach is inspired by inner developments such as meditation and Buddhist studies and by the tones of Chinese Medicine. I am very grateful to my clients as I continually learn from them. I find that a genuine openness and connection is essential for transformation to take place.
I understand that in this busy city people need methods that are effective, gentle and relaxing. I combine gua sha deep facial massage with facial acupuncture. Because of the very fine needles used on the face you can hardly feel anything mainly energy circulation and slight tightening of the facial muscles. Alongside these methods derma rolling can be performed to optimise collagen production, reduce facial scars and to rejuvenate the skin.
Gua Sha facial massage on its own is a nice alternative if you prefer treatments with no needles. It is like a facial workout that tones the facial muscles and has beneficial effect on the skin. It also harmonises the body through the meridians running through the face.
