My name is Luminita and I am an Acupuncture practitioner trained at the prestigious International College of Oriental Medicine where I achieved a BSc (Hons) and a Licentiate in Acupuncture awarded through the University of Greenwich. This award facilitated a full membership with the British Acupuncture Council.
Although I have been a Registered Nurse for many years, I always knew that there was something missing which prevented people to achieve the health and well being they deserved and that, with acupuncture, I can help people on their way to wellness.
By vocation and training, I am a holistic therapist and I am happy to have been given the chance to take this path in my career.
The interest and fascination for the Chinese Medicine History and Philosophy led me to realise that Acupuncture is the bridge that links Western Medicine to Chinese Medicine for a better understanding of the pathophysiology of disease manifesting differently in different individuals. Using this approach, the root cause of the problem is treated, not just the symptoms.
I have made the target of my professional career to integrate all my knowledge in helping people achieve their full potential by giving the mind a healthy body. My approach is to holistically involve the person in their treatment by explaining the process I am following, embodying nurturing the emotional being as well as the physical one. I have been trained in Classical Chinese Acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Acupuncture, Five elements Acupuncture and Stems and Branches.
Professionally I am particularly interested in treating cancer diagnosed individuals. Stress, anxiety, muscular-skeletal pain, digestive disorders, women’s health and fertility are amongst a few other conditions that I treat in my clinic every day. Acupuncture is very efficient in alleviating the side-effects of chemotherapy such as nausea and vomiting, hypertension, lymphoedema, increased risk of stroke, chemotherapy induced menopause.
Recently, I joined the UK Affiliate of Acupuncturists Without Borders, hoping to be able to help those in need after experiencing trauma, accidents, misplacement, addictions.
I am constantly amazed by our body’s ability to heal itself. My goal is to help facilitate this and remind the body of its true purpose: to be a whole.
