Welcome to my clinic.
I was inspired to study Chinese medicine after initially studying massage and Reiki. I often felt limited by what I could offer my clients and felt the need to explore other therapies. Intuitively I felt that many of my clients' problems were far more deep-seated than the symptoms they were presenting, such as back ache or headaches for example. Acupuncture has enabled me to look deeper and address the root causes instead of dealing solely with the symptoms, which is so typical of many therapies. I have been consistently amazed by how acupuncture has improved the health of my patients.
Although I specialise in gynaecology and assisting people along the journey to becoming a parent, I am highly experienced in the treatment of chronic pain, anxiety and depression, headaches, migraines and digestive problems.
I trained at the London College of Traditional Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine, where I obtained my BSc(Hons). I completed my MSc in Chinese Herbal Medicine in 2016, at the University of Westminster. I am a member of the Register of Chinese Herbal Medicine, a member of the British Acupuncture Council, British Acupuncture Federation and Acupuncture Childbirth Team. I trained with John Tyndel at the Yuan Traditional Medicine College to qualify as an auricular acupuncturist. In Summer 2022 I will complete an Advanced Level Diploma in Fertility Acupuncture, becoming a Fertility Support Expert.
In my spare time, I am a keen open water swimmer and I can usually be found by the nearest river, lake or sea.
We are delighted to welcome our newest team member, Damián Allegretti.
Damián graduated from the Li Ping Institute of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine in Barcelona.
He loves treating digestive and respiratory problems, but treats a wide range of conditions, from musculoskeletal dysfunction and chronic pain, to insomnia and depression. His treatments encompass nutrition, herbs, acupuncture, movement, massage, moxibustion, cupping , and lifestyle counselling.
Damián will be working on Wednesday afternoons and will be a fantastic addition to the clinic! He will be providing Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine and Tui Na Chinese Massage.

A must for 'mystery' ailments...
After enduring pain, limited mobility and general misery caused by severe swelling in my knee (and at one point, my entire leg and foot) for the most part of 12 months, I decided to contact Nicola for help. I've known Nicola for a number of years having been treated by her before. I made the 2.5 hour journey to her studio for my first appointment. The pain has subsided to almost zero and mobility has recovered. Nicola has even managed to provoke some dormant muscles that had shut down due to my problem and 'awaken' them with the assistance of acupuncture needles and an electrical zapper!
Very professional, highly experienced
Nicola is a true professional in every way. Her treatments are tailored to your exact requirements and exceptionally effective.
