Maggie Bavington Acupuncture, Shiatsu & Chinese Herbal Remedies in East London

Originally a manager in the voluntary sector working with homeless people, after having acupuncture myself, I was so impressed with how much better I felt that I decided to train as a traditional acupuncturist at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine, and qualified in 1999. After several years of practice I became interested in working with the body to experience Qi in a more hands-on way, and in 2004 qualified as a Shiatsu practitioner after a 3 year training at the British School of Shiatsu-Do. In 2006 I qualified at the Northern College of Acupuncture to prescribe Chinese herbal medicine in the form of pre-prepared pills, and I gained a MSc in Chinese herbal medicine at Westminster University in 2011.

Continuing professional development and special interests

Post qualifying I have continued to learn more about aspects of practice that have particularly interested me over the years, including some study trips to hospitals in Guangzhou and Beijing;
Women's health, including support for fertility, miscarriage and pregnancy. My MSc Chinese herbal medicine dissertation was on PCOS
Emotional wellbeing, including traditional five element acupuncture, developmental trauma, body psychotherapy
Chronic fatigue and post-viral syndrome, allergies, autoimmune and endocrine disorders
Sports injuries and electro-acupuncture
Chinese herbal medicine for skin problems
Classical Chinese herbal medicine (this comes from before the People's Republic of China put together what we now call traditional Chinese medicine in the 1950s. Despite the name, TCM is quite influenced by bio-/conventional/western medicine)
I have also trained in supervision and offer one to one and group supervision to acupuncture practitioners
