18 years ago I personally experienced the change acupuncture and massage could make to my own health. After years working in the stressful business of graphic design in London, I experienced severe back pain and MRI showed I had numerous prolapsed disks. Acupuncture and Chinese Massage got me back on my feet and I decided to change my life and started studying Tui Na and Acupuncture in 2002.
