About

It’s my passion and purpose to empower, inspire and support people to live a life of vitality and longevity.  I’ve had my own journey with mental health, weight, and digestive problems. This has shaped and steered my journey into the health and wellness sector. I am a successful Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner, and Wellness Mentor. I have had a successful UK Acupuncture practice since 2012. During my internship at Zhejiang Provincial Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine in 2019, I was privileged to study more about the powerful effect our digestive health has on every aspect of our life! Our digestive health is at the centre of our whole well-being, yet the nutritional value of our food and our lifestyle choices means that we are likely to be lacking in essential nutrients, leaving us vulnerable to illness and disease – that may otherwise be prevented. This inspired me further to see how I could help others be more aware of the cruciality of our digestive health. I am on a personal and professional mission to help others to realise their power in healing, preventing illness and disease, and living an abundant life.

In April 2019, Marie completed an internship in advanced clinical acupuncture, at the acclaimed Zhejiang Provincial Hospital of TCM in Hangzhou, China, studying advanced techniques in abdominal and scalp acupuncture.

Marie’s interest in Chinese culture was sparked at a young age by martial arts, then later expanded to include Chinese astrology and Feng Shui.  Inspired by the Taoist philosophy underpinning it, she was drawn to study more about the power and effectiveness of Traditional Chinese Medicine.  Marie prides herself on excellent patient care, tailoring each treatment to the individual, and taking an ongoing interest in your health and wellbeing.
