Suzanne's passion for healthy living, nutrition and preventative and natural medicine led her to study the therapeutics of Traditional Chinese Medicine and the ancient philosophy of Yang Sheng, living in harmony with our life. She integrates her foundation in Applied Kinesiology into her approach. The aim in her practice is to help people reach a better, more natural balance, by helping to strengthen their constitution and immune system in order to help improve their physical and mental health, energy and wellbeing.

Today's chronic physical ailments, challenged immune system and mental health issues, exacerbated by mounting levels of daily life stressors, are leading people to Traditional Chinese Medicine where peer reviewed plant and natural medicine research continues to present avenues to wellbeing which the allopathic medical model is unable to provide on it's own. The regulatory bodies, the Register of Chinese Herbal Medicine (RCHM) and British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) have each compiled research relating to a wide range of conditions. Hippocrates' rudimentary 'let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food" maxim provides the third essential therapeutic practice of food energetics for Suzanne as a Chinese Medicine practitioner. This natural medicine, nutrition, begins at home.

Throughout her 25 years in private clinical practice as a herbalist and NHS approved acupuncturist working with babies, children and adults, Suzanne has integrated her herbal medicine, acupuncture, Yang Sheng lifestyle advice including food energetics, the cultivation of the mind and spirit, the body with work, rest and exercise and living in harmony with the laws of nature, to develop bespoke holistic treatment and wellbeing plans for each individual.

Suzanne is founder of USP-UKR, The Ukrainian Refugee Trauma Support Project in London and with a team of seven, trained and qualified refugees, has worked with over 900 refugees since the outbreak of war. She is a member of The Jade Screen Project which offers herbal support to assist COVID prevention and long-COVID recovery. She also offers telemedicine herbal medicine consultations to those who prefer to remain at home.

People often ask how my journey as a Chinese medicine practitioner started. Well, it isn't really a straight forward answer and, it most certainly was a journey. An unexpected post viral illness, much like long-COVID, took me out of work and in search of a cure. I was oddly aware of being ill for a reason. It was herbal medicine and the reading of Ted Kaptchuk's book 'The Web that has no Weaver' that captured me and my imagination and set me on the path to becoming well. I was so well in fact, that I went on to run the London Marathon two years later and climbed unnamed peaks in distant lands. Over time, after trying to have children for 10 years with several miscarriages and a diagnosis of early menopause, the call to nature and nurture became too strong. It was at that point that I decided to give up my director's role at a bank in the City to study herbal medicine and nutrition, food energetics. In my final year of study, I stood up in class as a practice patient and shared the sub-fertility story. Eleven months later, during my first year as a Chinese medicine practitioner, my daughter was born.

It is my hope that you will discover and embrace the philosophy of Yang Sheng and the seeking of balance and harmony in life supported by Traditional Chinese Medicine and adopt something that makes a healthy difference to you and your family and friends' wellbeing.

‘Wanting to illuminate bright virtue under heaven, the ancients first governed their states. Wanting to govern their states they first put their families in order. Wanting to put their families in order. They first cultivated their body’. Confucius
