Portrait Liv Ruddy

“I have dedicated my life to offering the best healthcare system available to everyone who wants wellness for a better quality of life”

Liv worked in Pharmaceutical Development Research since graduating university. In 2000 a sudden onset of persistent Aura Migraine that was resistant to all known medication available, she was needing medical leave one day per week. In the search for pain relief a trusted martial arts friend recommended her Acupuncturist. Bearing in mind at this time, there was very little published in English or practitioners. As a scientist, she was astonished by the ability of Chinese Medicine to address problems that medicine didn’t work for and her migraine has been minimised to one or less per year. Since that point she left her career to pursue excellence in chinese medicine has combined the best in clinical research and classical medicine to ensure rapid and long lasting results for her clients.
