Louise began her journey as a therapist with a Thai massage course in Thailand in 1998; this generated a keen interest in Eastern Medicine. So she went on to enroll on a BSc(Hons) in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Acupuncture at the University of Westminster, graduating in 2004.
She has been practising acupuncture and massage for 14 years and has had the good fortune to gain experience in diverse settings including the charitable sector, social services, NHS and private practice. This has enabled her to treat a wide variety of conditions, to challenge her practice and to understand ways in which it can serve and where it may have its limitations. Along the way she has continued her professional learning by attending postgraduate courses and in 2008 embarked on a BSc in Physiotherapy. This has made her see the benefit of a combined approach using both acupuncture and physiotherapy with some of her patients.
Her areas of specialism are persistent pain including spinal pain, headaches, rheumatological disorders, autonomic dysfunction and hypermobility, mental emotional difficulties and tendon related pathologies. As a keen cyclist, she also has an interest in associated sporting injuries and pain.
She is HCPC registered and a member of The Chartered Society of Physiotherapists and The British Medical Acupuncture Society.
