Sandra Guy grew up in Hong Kong. Having completed a degree in English from Bristol University she went onto study Daoist Self-Cultivation and Traditional Chinese Medicine in the Netherlands choosing to specialize in acupuncture. She graduated from Shenzhou Open University for Traditional Chinese Medicine, Cum Laude. In 2015 she completed her postgraduate training in Toyohari, a style of gentle but powerful Japanese acupuncture at The European Branch of the Toyohari Association in Amsterdam. Sandra holds certificates in Auricular acupuncture, Classical Herbal Formulas, Tui Na Massage, Traditional Chinese Stool Massage and Wudang Fitness.
Sandra also practices Shonishin a Japanese form of acupuncture designed to help children suffering from a wide range of problems including sleep disorders, digestive issues, concentration problems and anxiety. Based on a system of therapeutic tapping and stroking using specialized instruments, Shonishin applies meridian based therapy in a child-friendly way with only occasional (if any) needling. Shonishin can be used on children of all ages from babies to twelve year olds.
Sandra works with all health conditions but has a special interest in women’s issues including period pains, fertility, post-pregnancy, menopause and aging. She is also writing a series of books on secrets from Traditional Chinese Medicine.
“Last winter I strained my knee and wasn’t able to use my bike, which was a big problem as I bike my kids to school each day. Sandra treated me once with moxa and advised some home treatment. Within days I was able to bike again as normal with no pain at all.”— Koby, Amsterdam
