My transatlantic interview experience!

My transatlantic interview experience!

A couple of weeks ago, with the help of technology that is way too deep for me to understand, I was interviewed by Jenny Dubrowsky in Chicago, about treating children and about my upcoming book.  Jenny is a successful and prolific acupuncturist/blogger/author.  Please check out her website www.tcm007.com.  Jenny has edited the interview, which (amazingly) felt like a relaxed chat with a friend in the same room, and posted some of the highlights.  Here are the links:

I have been practising acupuncture for 15 years. As well as practising in Oxford, I am both a senior lecturer and clinical supervisor at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine (www.cicm.org.uk) which is the biggest acupuncture training centre in Europe. I have treated both adults and children and whilst the benefits of acupuncture for adults are well-known and well-documented, fewer people are aware of how it can benefit children. I decided that I wanted more children to experience the benefits of acupuncture, and so decided to set up The Panda Clinic. I have to admit to having another motivation - I love being around children and derive great satisfaction when I see children recover from ill health. I am mother to 2 primary school age children. As well as being an experienced acupuncturist, as a parent I have a good understanding of the stress and anxiety that an ill child can induce. I will always do my best to communicate with the parent(s) of a child I am treating as thoroughly and clearly as I can.
