After graduating in pharmacy from Complutense Madrid University, Cristina worked in the pharmaceutical industry for several years before moving to community pharmacy. During her years as a community pharmacist, Cristina became passionate about learning complementary therapies to further benefit her patients.

Cristina became particularly interested in acupuncture, one of the most accepted and practised therapies by healthcare professionals.

Cristina also completed a postgraduate diploma in Tui Na massage at the same college.

In her clinic, Cristina is amazed at how acupuncture can help promote physical and emotional wellbeing, while being drug and virtually side effect free. Cristina combines her knowledge of Western medicine with Traditional Chinese medicine to provide individually tailored holistic treatments.As part of the treatment, Cristina offers dietary advice and may also use techniques such as Cupping, Guasha, Moxibustion and Electroacupuncture.
