Acupuncture can alleviate pain and stress, regulate energy and emotions, and help kick-start your body's natural healing ability
Acupuncture is a painless treatment that involves the insertion of fine needles into specific points in the body to stimulate self-healing and promote relaxation. You might feel tingling, warmth or a slight ache.
Yes - your treatments will be personalised according to your needs and body constitution, and can often be carried out together with other Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) modalities, like cupping, Tuina and herbal medicine.
Traditional Chinese Medicine is a complete system of medicine and therapy used for thousands of years to treat a wide range of physical, mental and emotional conditions.
It provides gentle, natural solutions to modern-day health concerns, and works to activate the body’s natural ability to heal and re-balance.
Hello, I am Pearl, and I'm originally from Singapore. I moved to London in 2009, and now get to call beautiful Edinburgh my home. I am a licensed acupuncturist and a registered member of the Acupuncture Society of Professional Oriental Therapists. I am fully insured to practice acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, tuina, cupping and moxibustion.
I studied Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and acupuncture with my teacher Darren Rose, who runs a busy fertility clinic in London. I continued to develop my skills in Chinese herbal medicine and other TCM modalities like cupping and tuina at the Singapore College of Traditional Chinese Medicine, as well as the School of Healing Arts (SOHA) in Singapore. Upon graduation, I worked as a clinical assistant to Dr Gabriel Chen at Oak Health TCM Clinic in Singapore.
Previously, I had a career in design and technology. Confronted with various stress-related health issues, I eventually turned to Chinese medicine and found it nothing short of life-changing. I decided to study TCM and acupuncture and use it to help others in need of support and self-care. Chinese medicine is deeply rooted in my culture and upbringing, and I hope to share it in a way that is easy and approachable.
My special interest is in acupuncture for fertility, IVF support, and women’s health, but I am happy to treat anyone across a wide range of conditions and health goals.
My own fertility journey was a fraught one, and I have deep compassion for every person travelling down that same road. The approach of Western medicine is highly effective, but can also feel harsh and invasive; TCM can gently support you on your journey to conceive - and treat you as a whole person and not a collection of disorders.
It helped me, and now I would like to help others.
