It is my passion to help women to feel healthier and happier, in a sustainable holistic way. I offer natural solutions to support both chronic issues and mid-life changes by providing a bespoke herbal treatment and the education that empowers women to independently take charge of their own wellbeing.
My background is diverse, having been born in Russia – where I gained my degree in Law – and spent most of my adult life in Sweden, continuing my corporate business career. In Sweden I retrained as a practitioner of Chinese Medicine, and now run my own clinic in the UK as well as teach other professionals, internationally and online.
When I decided to go back to studies, I was naturally inclined to pick the subject of Chinese medicine due to my long-term interest in holistic health. In the process of training I discovered that Chinese medicine is a highly sophisticated art and a science in its own right with the profound practical value for modern life. This realisation drove me to change my career, move into clinical practice and pursue continuous further education on the subject.
For me, studying and practicing Chinese medicine has by itself been a healing experience. First, I found my passion and purpose and it changed my life. Second, I was able to apply my knowledge of herbs to address my own health problems. But just as important, I took into account the bigger picture of health, prioritised own development and learnt to adopt a gradual, measured approach to life. As a result, in my mid-forties I feel healthier, more fulfilled and in harmony than in my younger years.
After embracing and applying the learnings in my own life, I wanted to take on the serious responsibility to help others. I have been helping women find solution to their health issues, ranging from chronic conditions to age related changes and challenges. Minimising the impact of physical issues on everyday life, reduction or reversal of the symptoms, improvements in energy levels, sleep and the ability to cope with life challenges are just a few examples of the outcomes achieved.
These meaningful results have been made possible thanks to a highly individual and holistic approach of Chinese medicine, its gentle natural therapies that support the body’s innate ability to heal itself, and self-care education that hands over the responsibility for own health back to a woman.
