Sean's interest in Chinese Medicine started with an interest in Martial Arts in 1985. In the Orient, martial arts and healing arts are often learned together. In 1995, after training in oriental medicine whilst living in Japan, Sean returned to England to complete a degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine at the University of Westminster in London. After this, he completed a post-graduate internship at various hospitals in Hangzhou, China. Whilst in China, Sean also trained in Tuina, a Traditional Chinese form of massage. In order to add to his skills, he subsequently studied Chinese patent herbal medicine, again at the University of Westminster, with one of the country's leading Chinese herbalists. Sean has taught Chinese remedial and therapeutic exercise (Chi Kung) and T'ai Chi Chuan since 1995.
