PHILOSOPHY

By Sharmin

Always been a curious soul, two passions that keep me busy mastering in life has always been Medicine and Art.

When I came across Leonardo Di Vinci work, it has been true inspiration. He seemed to capture the beauty within his art of human body and nature. Art is my outlet to relax, I feel like I'm encased in bubble of timeless reality until I capture the true essence of the vision in my mind.

I have been in the medical field since 2007, mainly based within the NHS. Immersing myself into Chinese Medicine since 2008, has been like a missing jigsaw.

Funnily I stumbled across acupuncture through a recommendation from my doctor to treat my severe period pains, I was on the strongest pain killers. So with no other option, I gave the acupuncture a go and it worked! So then I started wondering how does it work?

 

Reading about Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture, I realised I could study in London at weekends on degree level and become a Acupuncturist. The journey of studying Chinese Medicine had familiar comforting elements of Western anatomy and physiology reminder and refresher from my first degree. Then the huge adjustment was grasping the Chinese Medicine theories needed for diagnosis to formulate point prescription. So its not as easy, to just insert acupuncture needles on the body. Thats where the results of treatment outcome can be seen. 

Western and Eastern medicine work in synergy by complementing each other, enhancing the optimum results for patients. Undeniably visible in my time in China at First Affiliated Hospital of Heilongjiang University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, particularly with neurological (mainly stroke) conditions. Since returning from my 3 months placement, inspired to complete my Masters in Acupuncture whilst working at GP practice part-time.

Chinese Medicine is so enriched with knowledge, I am always deepen my understanding and integrating into my practice. 

Since treating patients from student clinic (500hrs) to now, I have seen so many conditions. I am always humbled and amazed to be blessed meeting so many wonderful souls. 

My simple satisfaction is being able to support anyone that comes to see me, to regain balance of wellbeing into their lives.   

"When you touch one thing with deep awareness,you touch everything."

- Lao Tzu 

 
ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture is one of the longest established forms of healthcare in the world. Acupuncturists are trained to use subtle diagnostic techniques that have been developed and refined for thousands of years. The focus is on you as an individual, not your illness, and all symptoms are seen in relation to each other. Treatment involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body to affect the flow of your body’s qi, or vital energy.

REIKI HEALING

‘Universal energy’ is what Japanese word ‘Reiki’ means. Then the next question would be ‘what does energy mean?’. Most recognisable as; Prana, Life Force, Ki, Qi, Chi or ‘The Force’, Scientifically classified as ‘potential to cause change’ somehow it seems to be always present and vital for life.
