I have practised 5 Element Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine since 1998, when I graduated from the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading. My initial enquiry into acupuncture andother healing methods stemmed from travels through Asia, where holistic medicine is incorporated into daily life. On my return to the UK, I trained and subsequently worked as an acupuncturist, as well as in the field of nutrition and in personal development.
Prolapse discs at L4/5 and L5/S1 while taking part in university 1st XV rugby ended my rugby playing, but started my life with chronic pain. Over this time I have tried therapies from all over theworld (from Chinese acupuncture to German Orthopedic surgeons) and I have found that Osteopathy has been consistently the most effective long term treatment. I believe that osteopathic care is the cornerstone of any comprehensive and holistic health program.
