Hi, I'm Lucia - founder of Acu & Co. and a qualified acupuncturist and naturopath, based in Barnes where I live with my husband Charlie and our wonderful Airedale, Lola.
Like many in my profession, I first came to acupuncture as a patient. This was soon after relocating to the UK, almost 20 years ago now. The experience came following an upbringing in Slovakia in a family passionate about nature - I spent my summer holidays hiking and picking herbs in the Tatras mountains, autumns foraging for mushrooms, and much of my spare time throughout the rest of the year helping my Mum and Grandma
in their allotments. All the time absorbing their extensive knowledge of healing powers of plants, food and herbs, as well as natural remedies and recipes, supplemented by my favourite book at the time, the Reader's Digest edition of Foods That Harm, Foods That Heal.
So, perhaps no surprise that I chose to enrol at the College of Naturopathic Medicine in London, where I studied for 4 years, graduating with merit in Traditional Chinese Acupuncture and Naturopathy, before going into practice.
As my knowledge and practical skills have developed over the years, I feel very lucky to now be in a position to share these with my clients. I am very passionate about helping people identify and understand the root causes of their specific conditions - both the physical and emotional drivers - and really partnering with them to tailor specific holistic programmes in order to address these.
I get so much pleasure seeing my clients experience the benefits of my treatments and how effective they are, and really look forward to you experiencing this too.
