"I love my profession and have learned from experience that Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine can provide effective treatment for many health conditions. The longer I am in practice the more aware I become of the potential of the integration of these skills into general medicine.

I am father of two boys Sami and Finn aged 15 and 13. I like to read philosophy and psychology, both contemporary and classical, and practise a holistic lifestyle that includes yoga, tai-chi/qigong and meditation. I enjoy cooking and eating seasonal home grown and locally sourced food with the occasional glass of good red wine".
