I am a fully licensed practitioner of acupuncture and a member of the BAcC which is the largest body of professional acupuncturists in the UK and guarantees excellence in training standards, safe practice and ethical behaviour.
I treat a variety of conditions, but have a special interest in treatment of gynecological and fertility issues, pain, stress/anxiety related disorders, which could include gastrointestinal issues, headaches, arrhythmias, or an array of skin conditions. My approach is informed by Traditional Chinese Medicine as well powerful acupuncture styles of Master Tung and Dr Tan Balanced Method. I also place a great emphasis on the most recent research in acupuncture and health management in order to provide the best quality of care to my patients.
Prior to qualifying as an acupuncturist, I earned a degree in English Literature. I taught English for several years before deciding to make a career change and follow my life-long fascination with holistic medicine. My interest in how the body and mind work together to create well-being urged me to take up studies in Social Care and Counselling and, eventually, Traditional Chinese Medicine.
My education and work experience have given me an appreciation of the transforming and healing potential of therapeutic relationship as well as the tools to help facilitate that process.
''I felt comfortable and at ease with Monika and I really enjoyed all the different treatments of Acupuncture she gave me. I was new to this treatment but found it relaxing and helpful. I would definitely go again.'' (Carmen)
''You are immediately at ease with Monika and she completely understands your symptoms'' (Adele)
''Monika is extremely caring, knowledgeable and I have complete confidence in her skills'' (Mary)
''Monika has such a caring and personable nature and holds an amazing space for the process that I found I could trust the treatment and allow myself to be more vulnerable and open than I usually am whilst a lot of intense sensation and emotion come up'' (Paul)
