LLB (Hons) Dip Ac Clin Ac (China) MBAcC, MEFTInternational
My interest in East Asian medicine began when I was living in Japan and studying shiatsu. After returning to the UK I qualified in acupuncture in 1991. This was followed by further intensive clinical training in a teaching hospital in Nanjing, China. Since 1998, I have specialised in Japanese acupuncture systems, training in the UK, the Netherlands and Japan. I taught for many years as a Senior Lecturer at the University of Westminster and as a guest lecturer at other acupuncture colleges in the UK. I am passionate about making Japanese acupuncture more widely available to practitioners and patients, organising and teaching post-graduation courses in the UK and abroad.
My clinical experience includes:
I have published numerous articles on Japanese acupuncture and have undertaken research that has been published in professional journals. I have presented papers at the British Acupuncture Council’s Research Symposium & at the British Acupuncture Council conference.
(Emotional Freedom Technique aka 'tapping'). It is part of an approach known as Energy psychology.
To women and their partners. help with pre-conceptual care and support whilst trying to conceive.
Acupuncture can be a valuable support at all stages of pregnancy from the early days after conception to postnatal care.

(Specialist Japanese gentle Shonishin approach). A specialised style of acupuncture developed over 250 years ago.
I saw Marian after two attempts at implanting IVF embryos had failed. I found her very calm and encouraging, and the treatment seemed to have swift effect. Within a month my menstrual cycle was more regular. After two months I implanted an IVF embryo, which was successful, and I now have a healthy baby daughter.
The treatment I received from Marian helped me recover from lung surgery both medically and psychologically, using her expertise in acupuncture and the EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) that helped me feel more in control of my pain and recovery. Highly professional wiht a good dose of empathy and humour, Marian helped me feel that I was being cared for as a person as well as a patient.
