She uses mainly plant and mineral products as well as a small amount of ethical animal product. Her acupuncture style is gentle and attentive so that even the most nervous of patients, including children and animals, have a relaxed and positive experience.
Virginia has a special interest in all areas of women’s and children’s health, however considerers herself a general practitioner for the whole family, including dogs, cats and horses.
Virginia is passionate about the philosophy and theories of Traditional Chinese medicine and continues to study both classic and modern interpretations and applications of this medicine for use in her practise.
Virginia has had clinical experience in hospitals in Shanghai, Hangzhou and Qingdao on mainland China, experiencing Traditional Chinese medicine being practised in the busy public health system.
Virginia’s vision of an integrated health clinic, where a person’s whole health can be considered and resolved under the one roof, has been realised at Red Door Health Clinic. Virginia and indeed all the practitioners at Red Door Health clinic regard the importance of communication between practitioners of both alternative and conventional medicines, for the benefit of the patient’s health outcome, as highly important.
