Rosy Hawkins - TCM Acupuncture
Rosy is a qualified Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Acupuncturist, with a special interest in women’s health. Her clinical experience started in East London, U.K, before landing a very sought after space in the prestigious Neal’s Yard Therapy Rooms in both Covent Garden and Angel, London. She has worked with a wide range of conditions including pain, anxiety, digestive disorders, headaches, infertility, menstrual disorders, menopause and pregnancy support. In addition, she has specialised in IVF support, for which acupuncture has great results both in counteracting the side-effects of medication and encouraging a calm state of mind and environment for new life to conceive.
Acupuncture, a form of ancient Chinese medicine, diagnoses illness by examining the individual as a whole, incorporating physical and hereditary factors with environmental and psychoemotional factors to the clinical picture. Very fine, sterile, single-use needles are inserted into specific points on the body to access trapped energy and encourage flow to regain balance and optimum health. Research suggests acupuncture triggers the body's natural healing process by calming the nervous system, releasing endorphins and regulating hormones. Whatever you are seeking acupuncture for, you will likely feel calmer, more autonomous, and sleep better.
The number of treatments required is unique to the individual as with TCM acupuncture you treat the individual and not the condition. The treatment is tailored to you and your needs.
Rosy’s journey to holistic health began during her previous career as a dancer, receiving acupuncture for multiple injuries. She found the needles to offer the best remedy for pain relief, and here grew her curiosity for this ancient wisdom. As a dancer, and gymnast before that, she always felt a great awareness of her physical body, something that is not so natural to many people living in the fast-paced modern world. Rosy recognises the impact that daily stressors and traumas can have on the body, and works to guide her patients to a state of awareness so that the work can continue in their own time. She is also trained in reiki, neuro linguistic programming (NLP) and emotional freedom technique (EFT) and likes to incorporate this into the work where relevant.
A word from Rosy:
“I am privileged to work in this way. I consider it an honour to be invited into the experience of my patients and a gift to help facilitate a happy and healthier daily experience, so that a longer more fulfilled life can be achieved.“
Rosy’s training and practice follows a strict code of conduct and safe practice, as stipulated by the British Acupuncture Council, the professional body with whom she is affiliated in the United Kingdom.
Rosy is a mother to a near-two-year old, and lives and works in Nairobi.
