Lena has over a decade's experience in treating a variety of conditions with acupuncture within clinics in Edinburgh, Northumberland and South Shields. She is a member of the British Acupuncture Council which is the UK's largest professional body for the safe practice of Acupuncture.
Initially studying "Chemistry with Industrial Experience" at the University of Edinburgh, she continued her studies with a degree in "Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncture" at The Northern College of Acupuncture and Clinics in York. Her Asian background and Hong Kong Chinese parents inspired her to pursue this area. Moreover, she was keen to show how Acupuncture has a scientific approach which is not unlike modern day medicine. By sharing her insights to the prevention of illness and the importance of harmonising one's lifestyle has meant her patients enjoy good health and can maintain themselves by coming for the odd acupuncture top-up!
Lena is married to Andrew and has two young sons, Lewis and Max. She is also a dog lover and owns a pair of miniature Dachshunds. She keeps healthy by practising what she preaches and is an avid yogi. However, she is human and her vices include coffee and gin!
