Meet Lifei

BSc(Hons) MSc MBAcC

A registered TCM (Traditional Chinese Medical) Acupuncturist, passionate about helping women reclaim their feminine edge. It is my ambition to bridge a gap in the healthcare system by bringing together specialist practitioners that work together to help address your unique picture of health.

After graduating with a First Class Honors in York, I have undertaken specialist training in the area of hormonal balance, natural conception, IVF support, menopause + pelvic pain (endometriosis/dysmenorrhea).

It is my passion to help women uncover their unrelinquishing potential by helping build a foundation of strength, wholeness and balance in hormonal health.

Together, we will be your partners and facilitators in this health journey, to help you find your flow again.

Herbs truly shine as powerful facilitators in helping people to reconnect with nature and with their own unique potential to live the life they choose.

About herbal medicine

In general, Chinese herbal medicine is widely used for chronic internal conditions, such as chronic gastritis, chronic chest infections, chronic diarrhoea, habitual constipation, recurrent cystitis, common cold, etc.
It’s also commonly used for skin conditions, menstruation problems and menopause.

They are specially formulated in China and include flowers, leaf stalks, seeds and roots. Each herb has healing properties that are used for specific purposes and perform particular functions.

The combinations of herbs (carefully selecting up to 20 herbs from a total of more than 300 types) are prescribed specifically to treat individual conditions. Each prescription is therefore tailor made.

Nowadays Chinese herbal medicine is often made into powders and stored in a bottle. Patients drink it like instant coffee by mixing 3 or 4 grams of the substance with half a cup of hot water each time – drinking it twice a day, over a course of seven days.

As all patients and conditions are different, treatment can vary from a few weeks to several months. Please note that the medicine has quite a bitter taste and can be sweetened with sugar or honey by your own preference.
