A Filipina educated in the Philippines, United States, Japan and the United Kingdom, I worked in trade publishing prior to studying Chinese medicine. It was while living in Hong Kong in the late ‘90s that I first learned t’ai chi, a system of movement, meditation and self-defence from ancient Chinese culture. I also experienced first-hand how Chinese medicine is used alongside Western medicine, each complementing the other.
I studied acupuncture at the Confucius Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine within the London South Bank University. My hospital placement at the First Affiliated Hospital of the Heilongjiang University of Chinese Medicine (Harbin, China) gave me the opportunity to train with highly respected doctors of neurology, gynaecology, dermatology and musculoskeletal conditions.
Acupuncture patients come from north London, around the areas of Finchley, Muswell Hill, Highgate, Barnet, Golders Green, Mill Hill, Hendon, Hampstead, Cricklewood, Willesden Green, Kensal Rise and Queens Park.
I teach tai chi (Yang style short form) at the London School of T'ai Chi Chuan. Click here for information on tai chi classes in Soho and Sloane Square.
