I have been a professional acupuncturist (tCM) and body-worker for nearly 15 years. As lifestyle changes are integral to a tCM (traditional Chinese Medicine) approach to health and wellbeing I set up yoga classes from my holistic centre Carlisle Therapies over five years ago - to encourage my patients to include mindful movement and breathwork into their lives.  I now run regular weekly yoga classes from The Yoga Rooms, Carlisle and outdoor yoga classes in Kirkbride and Keswick when the weather is fair.

I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC), the UK's leading regulatory body for the practice of acupuncture. The BAcC Codes of Safe Practice and Professional Conduct are recognised as the gold standard by the Department of Health.  Choosing a BAcC registered Acupuncturist ensures your safety.

The aim of traditional Chinese acupuncture is to treat the whole person rather than specific symptoms in isolation. To simply find out what acupuncture can do for you, please call me in complete confidence and without obligation.
