Get to know Anne! Q&A…

Why did you become an Acupuncture & Tui Na Massage Therapist?

18 years ago I personally experienced the change acupuncture and massage could make to my own health. After years working in the stressful business of graphic design in London, I experienced severe back pain and MRI showed I had numerous prolapsed disks. Acupuncture and Chinese Massage got me back on my feet and I decided to change my life and started studying Tui Na and Acupuncture in 2002.

Where would we find you in your spare time?

Either walking or cycling along the beach, skiing or walking in the mountains in Norway, or reading a good book.

``Did you know….

Traditional Chinese Medicine is one of the oldest continuous systems of medicine in history, with recorded instances dating as far back as two thousand years B.C. It is based on the belief that what happens to one part of our body affects every other part of our body. The mind and body are not viewed separately, but as part of an energetic system.”
