Welcome to Empower Acupuncture! My name is Jerrold, and I’m here to help you achieve your own brand of wellness using acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine…
Coming from a family with Chinese heritage, Traditional Chinese Medicine was always a part of my childhood. I still remember how those principles of balance and harmony informed everyday life, and what’s more, my grandmother was also a Chinese herbalist too, so I guess you could say that it’s in my blood.
Prior to completing my acupuncture training in 2010, I worked in the charity sector for many years. But after a while, I felt like I needed to follow a different path. I wanted to do something that was still beneficial and helpful to people, but could be combined with my interest in health and wellness…and so Empower Acupuncture was born.
Although I trained in the UK, I’ve also lived and practiced acupuncture around the world in as far flung places as Australia, which has given me a very diverse perspective on acupuncture, who it can help and what it can achieve. But even though I’ve been in practice for many years, I’ve realised that there’s still so much more to learn about the evolving art of acupuncture, and actually, I find my patients are some of my best teachers!
When I’m not in the clinic, I can be found keeping my hand in charity work and volunteering with organisations such as Macmillan. I also love cooking (and eating!) and enjoy experimenting with recipes from a TCM perspective. And as I continue exploring ways to enhance my own wellbeing, I’ve started finding new opportunities to connect to nature and the outdoors, often in the company of my dog, Izzy.
If you want to know any more about me, or chat about treatment, then don’t hesitate to get in touch – it would be great to hear from you!
