I trained with Professor J R Worsley from 1980, initially qualifying in 1983 and gaining my Bachelor of Acupuncture degree in 1986.

After this I studied the patterns of ‘spontaneous remission’ and the classical Chinese concepts of health and life energy or Qi. At this time I also studied hands-on healing and counselling.

Wang-treatingThe ’90’s were spent consolidating my practice and teaching spiritual healing and meditation in England and North America.  This naturally led to the development of Energy Medicine.  In 2003 I started learning Tuina with Dr. Ding Renxian in England and undertook further clinical training in Traditional Chinese Medicine with Dr. Wang Ning Shen in Nanjing, China.  In the summer off 2004 I completed the Acupuncture Integration Course at College of Integrated Chinese Medicine, Reading with Angela & John Hicks.
In 2005 I started post graduate study of Chinese Herbal Medicine and went on to study Canonical Herbal Medicine with Dr. Arnaud Versluys.  I am a founder member of the Acupuncture De–Tox Servic in Plymouth.

I now works with Chinese Medicine – Acupuncture, Tuina, Chinese Herbal Medicine; Meditation; Feng Shui and Earth Energies and am a member of the Association of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

I was the coordinator for, and a tutor on, the Graduate Diploma in Chinese Herbal Medicine at CICM in Reading which unfortunately is no longer running. For good herb training in this country please contact Frances Turner.

I lived and worked in Chillington, South Devon. Antoinett Bruin and I ran the Dragon Clinic a community acupuncture multi-bed centre in Salcombe for a little over a year.

In 2018 we decided to relocate to central Portugal, in the mountains. We have bought a farm which we are redeveloping to grow and process herbs and provide holistic treatment
