After completing a Sports Degree I worked at Ambassadors a local health-club as a Personal Fitness Instructor. Whilst working there I began to develop knowledge in healing and complementary medicine, learning Reiki and Spiritual Healing.
Using these as a foundation I decided to specialise in Acupuncture, with its ancient roots back in the mist of time.
Studying for three years at The South West College of Oriental Medicine, and then in Beijing with the World Health Organisation at the University Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine and the Peace Hospital.
My main style of learning has been in Traditional Chinese Medicine though I have been greatly influenced by the Japanese technique that aims at a pain free style of acupuncture, and more recently by Taoist Medicine.
I am always furthering my learning through schemes of Continuous Professional Development with the world famous Acumedic in London, whose training is in collaboration with the Beijing University of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
In 2013 I completed my training of my Reiki 3rd Degree under the tuition of Mike Durant at Somerset Skies.
In 2016 I started studying for a further 3 years Post Graduate Diploma course (Part time) with the Xiantian College of Daoist Medicine, here I have been refreshing my knowledge and growing my breadth of understanding of Ancient and Taoist Chinese Medicine.
Outside of my work and study – I love to spend time with my wife and 2 boys, Dragon Boating, Camping, Walking and Renovating our home in Winscombe.
