Hi, I'm Oana and I am the founder and owner of Sacred Dao Acupuncture Clinic.
One of the things I love most about Chinese medicine is its holistic approach which focuses on you as an individual, taking into account your constitution, your needs and the context of your life, rather than applying one-size-fits-all treatments.
I achieved my degree in Chinese medicine with first-class honours from the University of Westminster in London. My training focused on acupuncture, tui na (Chinese massage therapy), cupping, moxibustion, gua sha and Chinese medicine diet and lifestyle advice. I additionally qualified as a tui na therapist with Sarah Pritchard at The City College of Acupuncture London.
I have a proven record of assessing, diagnosing and developing treatment strategies and plans that combine the practices mentioned above, for patients presenting with a wide range of health concerns. I am specialised in evaluating patients from a Chinese medicine perspective, as well as assessing the features of diseases from a Western medicine perspective and make the necessary referrals when needed.
As part of my holistic practice approach, I also offer individualised lifestyle advice (diet, exercise, stress management, sleep habits etc.) to complement treatment effectiveness and improve overall health.
I regularly attend courses and events to ensure my continuous professional development. Thus, I am able to be up to date with the latest research and treatment methods and constantly improve my skills as a Chinese medicine practitioner to benefit my patients.
I am an authorised member of De Nederlandse Vereniging voor Acupunctuur (NVA).
The Sacred Dao Acupuncture Clinic treatment costs can be claimed from most health insurance providers. Please see the list here.
Treatments are available in English, Spanish, German, Portuguese, French and Romanian.
The concept behind Sacred Dao
Within the context of traditional Chinese philosophy, Dao 道 is the natural order of the Universe, whose essence cannot be described or grasped as a concept but lived through the everyday experience of our lives. The way of Nature, the Dao, continually teaches us to yield, to let go and open up to the unfolding transformation that is a constant in the river of life.
The word Dao means ‘way’ or ‘path’. A happy and accomplished life happens when we find and follow our own sacred path, which is always the path with heart. By allowing the eternal flow of Dao to guide us and to synchronise with our inner voice, we can accomplish the full potential of our paths and therefore our lives.
I luckily found my sacred path and I am happily and gratefully fulfilling it every day. I hope with all my heart that through my practice and experience, I can support each person that I treat on their sacred path, as well as on their way to finding it.
