about me

Hello. I am Aya. I am a fully qualified, licensed and insured acupuncture practitioner.


I was born in Japan and moved to England about 20 years ago. My journey with acupuncture began when I was suffering from morning sickness and fatigue during pregnancy. The first time I tried acupuncture, I couldn’t believe its magical effect as nausea and fatigue improved dramatically! 

"After every treatment I left feeling incredibly relaxed and euphoric. I wish I could have put this feeling into a little box to open and enjoy every day."


what is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a treatment technique practised  in Traditional Chinese Medicine for over 2,000 years. It encourages the natural self-healing response by inserting fine needles on specific parts of the body.  

Currently the NHS recommends acupuncture only for chronic pain, chronic tension-type headache and migraines, but there is growing evidence that acupuncture can help people with other symptoms, such as musculoskeletal pain, gynaecological issues, urinary issues, digestive issues and psychological problems.

Aya was excellent in every way. She listened to me very carefully and explained in detail what she was going to do. I was suffering from a neck pain (caused by working from home) and insomnia (menopause-related), and the difference Aya’s treatment made after just once was truly amazing!

I saw Aya for health issues relating to a tumour on my pituitary gland. She was  charming, empathetic and very competent. My digestive issues, daily headaches, anxiety and low energy greatly improved. After every treatment I left feeling incredibly relaxed and euphoric. I wish I could have put this feeling into a little box to open and enjoy every day. I highly recommend Aya as an acupuncturist.


I have been seeing Aya for a while, she is very knowledgeable, kind & warm person. Her treatment gave me great strength & eased my pain on shoulder & neck almost immediately. It boosted my energy up & I felt much better. I definitely come to her whenever I have any problem. Highly recommend!
