Lilja Katanka is a qualified TCM Acupuncture practitioner and member of the British Acupuncture Council.  

Treatment with Lilja is fundamentally holistic, yet practical and results-driven, and takes into account the lifestyle and medical history of each individual patient.  Consultations include in-depth questioning about the patient's problems, treatment priorities, medications and general wellbeing, as well as feeling of the wrist pulses, and observation of the tongue.  Dietary and lifestyle advice is often central to the healing process, but must of course be do-able and mutually agreeable! The overall treatment will be focussed on your treatment priorities, but hopefully will have the 'side effect' of improving minor ailments and wellness. More about what to expect can be found here.

Lilja is committed to CPD and further learning and loves the fact that in Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture you are always learning and gaining experience.

She has also trained in Traditional Thai Massage in Wat Po, Bangkok, and is qualified in Facial Acupuncture, having studied under Virginia Doran. Other CPD courses completed include Shonishin- Japanese Paediatric Acupuncture with Stephen Birch, Acupuncture for the Eyes with Julian Scott, Acupuncture for Sports Injuries with Kevin Young, Kiiko Matsumoto style Japanese acupuncture with Andy Harrop, Treating Problems of the Head and Neck, with Kiiko Matsumoto , NeuroMuscular Taping with Martin Powell, and the treatment of Lingering Pathogens with Will MacLean.  As a BAcC member, she has also completed First Aid qualifications.
