Based in north London, Cristina was born and raised in Rome and has a background in Television Production, but it was moving to London at the turn of the millennium that prompted her to pursue a lifelong interest in Chinese medicine. Cristina studied Acupuncture at the London College of Traditional Acupuncture & completed her degree at the University of East London; in addition she gained a Diploma in Tui na and a certificate in clinical practice from the University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Nanjing, China. Cristina has also trained in Master Tung Acupuncture, a style of acupuncture particularly renowned for treating pain and that involves needling points located far from the site of pain. She is one of the few practitioners in the UK to be trained under the world renowned expert Dr. Travall Croom in Cosmetic Acupuncture and performing the Synergy Facial, a procedure that involves the integration of Chinese Medicine with modern western modalities, such as Red Light Therapy (RLT) and Microcurrent.
“Using a combination of acupuncture and Chinese massage, Cristina has not only exonerated back pain, but she has relieved both Repetitive Strain Injury in my hands and also bouts of insomnia, seemingly incurable by any other method. I value Cristina's calm aura and totally trust her expertise in recognising and addressing pain.”

One or two sessions and the pain is gone for weeks, sometimes months. I am now a regular patient as I find the whole experience very relaxing and soothing'

The sessions with Cristina gave me back the serenity I had lost, and thanks to acupuncture I feel much better.

“Our first session was very effective, it relieved bloating and constipation while improving to a great degree the quality of my sleeping. I felt an inner sense of calm and could concentrate on my work and my private life with a relaxed attitude and a positive outlook. My chronic pain got much better as a result of this peaceful state of mind. The therapy has been very effective so far at removing emotional blockages and coping with anxiety.Thank you."
