Niki is a dedicated Five Element practitioner informed by wider Daoist theory, with a basic knowledge of TCM language, facilitating cross-discipline communication.

We are also committed to working with Plant Spirit Medicine, Shiatsu and other practitioners who have an interest in the Five Element model of health & disease – you are welcome to attend any of the workshops you think might be suitable.
