Her practise includes all ages from 3 to 92 years and she says “it’s like being a GP, treating a whole range of illnesses and conditions but using Acupuncture and/or Chinese herbs to resolve the root cause of disease and symptoms.”
Helen is especially interested in Women’s health and reproductive medicine – from fibroids/ovarian cysts, menopause to natural/assisted fertility issues for both partners in conjunction with western medicine eg. IUI, IVF, Donor Cycles and continuing care during pregnancy.
She is a member of Acupuncture in Childbirth Team (ACT) in Hertfordshire – a group of practitioners dedicated to providing obstetric and fertility care. Helen is on the approved list of Acupuncturists for the Herts & Essex Fertility Clinic. She works with and has referrals from local GP’s, Gynaecologists, Midwives, Osteopaths and other Complementary Health practitioners.
Helen is a member of the main regulatory bodies for Chinese Medicine in Great Britain. These bodies – the British Acupuncture Council and Register of Chinese Herbal Medicine – both require their members to have had professional & stringent training and are bound by a strict code of ethics, good practise and have full professional insurance.
