I am an English speaking acupuncturist in Barcelona. Born in the UK, I have lived in Spain and Germany for many years and speak Spanish and German. I understand the stresses and strains that living in another country can have on an individual and their health. After experience in a successful practice in Oxford, UK, I moved back to Barcelona, a city I love, after previously living here for a number of years.
While studying at the renowned College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading, UK for a B.Sc. (Hons) degree in Acupuncture and Licentiate in Acupuncture (Lic Ac), I trained in both Five Element Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The degree involved not only acupuncture but also Tui na (a form of ancient Chinese massage), cupping, gua sha, moxabustion and an in-depth understanding of dietary advice according to the principle of Chinese medicine.
Since graduating a decade ago, I have continued to develop and broaden my knowledge and skills. I have completed post-graduate training in:
- Pain management
- Sports therapy
- Pregnancy and pre-birth preparation
- Turning breach babies
- IVF treatment (in vitro fertilisation)
- Natural fertility support
- Mental health and depression
- Dr Tan Balance method
- Advanced training in 5 Element Acupuncture.
Before starting up my own acupuncture clinic in the centre of Barcelona, in the lovely leafy street of Carrer Enric Granados, I ran my own practice at Clinica Tuset in Barcelona, I also gained specialist experience in an acupuncture clinic for fertility.
