Juanita’s journey as a health practitioner commenced in 1977 with a Swedish Massage diploma. Although she went on to art school to complete a degree in graphic design & photography, she was once more drawn to health, becoming fascinated by aromatherapy oils. During her aromatherapy and reflexology diploma, talk of Chinese acupuncture fired her imagination. In 1989, she embarked on a three-year acupuncture licentiate degree, being taught by Professor Worsley. Over the years she has trained in a number of disciplines which complement her practice, including allergy testing, structural acupressure, and Indian head massage.
Juanita taught at The College of Traditional Acupuncture and at The Warwickshire College for eight years, teaching A&P and Complimentary Therapies. She also teaches privately, runs a busy acupuncture practice, and manages to find some time to design beautiful gardens, including our own little haven at the Academy!
