markI practise traditional acupuncture at my clinic in Penarth and at The Acupuncture Centre in Mumbles, and feel very privileged to be able to help people achieve their full potential on a physical, mental and emotional level with this gentle yet extremely powerful therapeutic system. I am particularly interested in using acupuncture and related therapeutic techniques to treat babies and young children and have gained a diploma in paediatric acupuncture, following a year-long postgraduate training course with Julian Scott.
My interest in acupuncture arose following my first trip to China in 1999, where I first came across tai chi being practised. I was enthralled by the sight of so many people performing the slow meditative movements together, and I have been practising tai chi myself ever since, and now also teach regular classes in the Vale of Glamorgan.
As I learnt more through practising and reading about tai chi, I became more and more fascinated with Eastern perceptions of the way the body works, and the holistic view of health and disease. I started having acupuncture myself and was so impressed with the positive effects on my general health and energy levels that I decided to train to be a Chinese medicine practitioner. I studied at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading and graduated with a Bsc in Acupuncture, along with the Licenciate.
