I’m Lilja :) I was brought up in London, and as far as I can remember I've had an interest in complementary therapies, and asked a lot of questions. Western medicine didn't make much sense to me; I knew that my childhood eczema came back as soon as the steroid cream stopped- so obviously it wasn't actually treating the problem, just hiding it for a while... and I wanted a better explanation and solution! As a teenager I did work experience with a practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and was inspired. He subsequently treated me for a serious case of Glandular Fever (and for the post viral recovery)- and I am always so grateful for that powerful experience. Having studied Environmental Science, and travelled, and worked in the Sustainable Development field for several years, I came back to plan A and went back to university to study TCM: Acupuncture at Westminster University.
I love my job, am am honoured to have been able to treat so many people and conditions over my 10 years of practice. I love seeing results, and empowering patients to understand their bodies and experience their own healing potential. TCM helps us understand ourselves and our ailments in a different way, and allows us to get to the root cause of disease to achieve sustainable health and prevent illness.

I look forward to meeting and treating you!
