Why did Matt become an Acupuncturist?.....

 

” For as long as I remember I have always though that there was more to life than what we were taught in school. I felt the interconnectedness of life and the Earth. Naturally my readings and studies led me to the East where the ideas of oneness and energy are prevalent. I came across Daniel Reid's approachable books on Chinese medicine which led me to the classics of the Tao Te Ching and the I Ching. These ancient Chinese writings resonated with and I endeavoured to learn more.  

I therefore enrolled in a local Tai Chi class, which embodies the Chinese philosophy, and I was lucky enough to be taught by a Grand Master who teaches in the traditional way. I soon began to feel this Qi (pronounced Chee), or energy, of which I had read a great deal. As the sensations began to increase I also began to notice the benefits to my health. I became determined to learn more about Chinese medicine.

I therefore went for a course of acupuncture treatments, which entirely cured a recurring back and sciatica problem, sustained by years of landscape gardening.

This wetted my appetite even further and I decided on a complete career change away from landscaping and I enrolled on a three year course in London, to become a qualified acupuncturist. My hope was to learn as much as I could and to the greatest depth possible.

After qualifying with a 2.1 Honours degree in 2008 I joined the British Acupuncture Council, the governing body and gold standard for acupuncture in this country.

Since then I have continued with my Tai Chi practice and have qualified as a teacher. I have also completed a diploma in Tui Na, a form of Chinese massage, which gives greater scope and reach to my treatments.

I have since discovered the true depth and breadth of Chinese medicine and that the learning only truly begins when you are qualified!"
