Dhivya Sivanesan

Dhivya came to acupuncture after a 10-year career in international development and political analysis. Her first qualification was a bachelor’s degree from the International College of Oriental Medicine (ICOM) in 2015 and then went on to join the Xinglin Institute as a student in 2016. The following year, she shifted her London-based practice to Sri Lanka where she has set up her permanent clinic. Combining the skills and knowledge of her previous career, her current interests are directed towards setting up volunteer acupuncture projects in countries that have been affected by conflict, and establishing the first classical acupuncture college in Colombo.
