‘As a student of biology I became aware of the duality of structure and function, mind and body, and I saw this reflected in eastern and western medicine when I took time out to do an Honours degree in physiology and psychological medicine and then a PhD in acupuncture and Chinese medicine in the middle of my medical degree.
Since then I have been involved in practicing, teaching, researching and writing about complementary therapies and the integration of complementary medicine into mainstream practice and have practiced acupuncture in hospitals and private practice91, taught acupuncture to medical students and researched its use in emergency departments.
