Luke’s journey with Chinese medicine started when he underwent a course of acupuncture treatment for a long term back injury which had led to him stopping most forms of exercise. This successful treatment experience began an interest in health and prompted a change in career from office administration to a career within the health sector.
Luke studied acupuncture for a period of four years at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine (CICM) in Reading. Luke trained in both Five Element Theory and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and graduated from CICM with a Bachelor of Science Honours degree and Licentiate in Acupuncture. During this time, Luke also trained at the BODYHARMONICS Centre achieving a Diploma in Tui Na Foundation (Chinese therapeutic massage).
This integration of both styles of acupuncture and massage provides an opportunity for much deeper healing for patients not only at a physical level but also at an emotional and spiritual one. Luke has a commitment to continuing his professional development and improving his knowledge and practice of acupuncture. This was shown by completing further courses in Electroacupuncture, Facial Acupuncture (cosmetic acupuncture), Reflexology and Qigong Tui Na.
Recently Luke has undergone further massage training through Core Elements and has obtained the level 4 Sports Massage qualification. Extra massage training with the Hydrotherm and Wavestone massage techniques has provide clients with an even greater relaxation experience.
