Davids interest in Acupuncture stems from studying martial arts such as Aikido, Tai Chi and Qi Gong, both from a martial arts and a healing perspective. David also has a deep interest in alternative medicine as well as being aware of conventional medicine. This led to studying Five Element Acupuncture at the renowned College of Traditional Acupuncture in Warwickshire where after 3 years training he gained his licentiate in Traditional Acupuncture.
