Ping Ho

acupuncturist & Tui NA Massage therapist

Lic.Ac., MBAcC, BSc (Hons) Oriental Medicine Acupuncture

Ping was born in a small rural village in the south east of mainland China. She grew up in Hong Kong where Chinese Medicine has been an integral part of people’s lives. As a child, she observed her grandfather using herbs, acupressure and gua sha techniques in treating ailments of his own and his family.

Ping moved to the UK in 2003 and later studied at the International College of Oriental Medicine (ICOM). She practises traditional Acupuncture and Chinese tui na massage in Forest Row, East Grinstead and Crawley.  Apart from her private clinics, she also treats cancer patients on their recovery journeys for Macmillan (Queen Victoria Hospital) and The Olive Tree (Crawley Hospital). 

Since graduation, she has been supporting patients from all walks of life, with a wide range of conditions such as cancers, auto-immune diseases, gynaecolological issues, anxiety, menopause, infertility, depression, acute and chronic pain such as low back pain, acute sprains and sports injuries, etc.  She often combines various therapies such as tui na massage, cupping, moxibustion, acupressure, gua sha etc., with or without needles, in treatments to achieve better therapeutic results.

For her, Acupuncture treatments are not just mere tools to resolve illnesses. More importantly, Acupuncture helps our body and mind to achieve a more harmonious state, so that it can strengthen our immunity and promotes better health. This falls within a very old traditional Chinese concept, Yang Sheng (養生) –  nourishing one’s life by being mindful of what one does in one’s life (actions/thoughts/diet/exercise etc.).
