He started practicing medicine after graduation in 1990 and gained specialist title – TCM consultant in a provincial state hospital in 2001. In 2008, Dr Qin started working in the UK. Coincidently, during his outbound flight journey, he encountered a group of food-poisoned children passengers. Due to the lack of adequate medicine and medical equipment on board, he volunteered to help the children by acupuncture point pressure (a technique applied by hand, the effect of which is similar to acupuncture). This event of successful rescue was quickly discovered by various newspapers and journals and made the front pages. (click here to view Daily Express report)

MICHT, MIFHB, MLLAUK- Massage
Carola first started in healing and working as a therapist in 1995 in Germany.
It all began with REIKI. It was a difficult time for her and she received REIKI. That helped her to recover and this changed her life from that day forward and she knew this was her destiny. She says:
Even as a youngster, I was always drawn towards helping, caring for and comforting people. My siblings told me that I had “the right touch” and that I always found the exact spot to massage and also they felt so good after I had massaged them. I approach my massage work in a deeply spiritual way and include different massage techniques to better fit the needs of my clients. When a client has a treatment with me, he or she is the most important person for me and I give my best to help them so that they feel better after it. Sometimes I combine parts of different massage techniques to achieve the best result for my client’s needs. I’m not only treating the body but for me it’s always the whole person that needs to be treated. The human being is a complete system and when this system is out of balance, it can become unwell and ill. I work to bring the balance back, so that the energy can flow and when the harmony and the “feel good factor” returns and pain, stiffness and other symptoms can disappear.
Carola is able to connect quickly with her clients and find the right treatment they need. You may visit her website for more details of her Massage Practice. You can call her to book an appointment on: 07701 090077.
Marie Twitchett MICHT
Marie is a fully qualified Reflexologist and has been practising in Cambridge since 2006.
She discovered Reiki in 2007 and after studying and practising energy work became a Reiki Master in 2017.
She is particularly interested in the relaxation aspect of holistic therapies, and the ‘art of doing nothing’. Her aim is to offer time and space to relax. We often don’t know what being relaxed is, or how to achieve that special state of deep relaxation, away from the chatter of our minds, beyond the discomfort, or even the pain, of our bodies.
Once we know what it feels like to be really, truly, relaxed, mind and body in harmony, we want it again.
We become more aware of the times we are not relaxed and we want to learn to take better care of ourselves. When our body is at ease and our mind is at peace, we cope better with life ups and downs, and we can start healing.
All treatments include a consultation on the first visit. It is an opportunity to discuss all aspects of the treatment and a chance to ask and answer any questions.
