Herbal Medicine - Chinese
Sandra trained as a classical harpist both in Colombia and England and was involved with music for over 15 years. In 1998, she started to explore touch and other healing techniques to overcome illness. Her search for self-healing led her to completely change her lifestyle and try different disciplines that not only helped her restore her health but made her passionate about sharing what she had learned with others. Sandra now practises traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine and acupuncture and she is also trained in therapeutic massage and Reiki healing. Since 2000, she has worked as a therapist with victims of domestic violence, terminally ill patients, cancer patients and has also treated people with addictions. Sandra has trained in ear acupuncture, which is an essential tool during the drug, alcohol and tobacco detoxification process. She holds a certificate in working with people with cancer from the Bristol Cancer Help Centre.
Sandra tends to use all the skills she considers necessary to achieve the best results. You may have an acupuncture treatment that also involves Reiki or massage, or both, or you may be offered herbs if your condition is chronic or deep-seated. Sandra considers diet, relaxation and emotional balance integral parts of the healing process and always includes them in the picture. In her view, illness can become an unique opportunity for learning and growth, in which treatment can be not the cause but the catalyst for true life changes and healing.
Sandra is a member of the Association of Traditional Chinese Medicine, the Register of Chinese Herbal Medicine and the Complementary Therapists Association. She has run practices in London and Bristol and worked for four years at the St Peterís Hospice. She currently works at the CAAAD project for alcohol and drug recovery and in private practices.
