Andrew Wormald’s interest in Chinese health practices dates back to the late 1990s when he started training in Tai Chi and Qigong, which then led to an academic career researching Chinese history and philosophy. After many years in academia, he decided that he would like to use his skills in a more people focused role, and so in 2017 chose to retrain as an acupuncturist.
Andrew is particularly interested in the drug free relief that acupuncture can offer for issues that may arise during pregnancy and childbirth, as well as the benefits that it can offer during post-partum recovery. He is also deeply interested in the mind-body relationship as understood by Chinese medicine, and is keen to work with clients seeking help with mental-emotional issues. Another important aspect of his practice is helping clients with pain issues as he finds it very rewarding to offer relief to those living with acute or chronic pain.
Andrew’s approach to acupuncture treatment is based on Five Element and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). He also draws extensively on his knowledge and practice of Tuina therapeutic massage techniques and Qigong exercise.
He received his training from the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine and the Buqi Institute. Andrew is also completing additional specialist training in Gynaecology, Fertility and Obstetrics. As an associate of Jill Glover at the Alma Vale Centre, he is able to draw on her deep wealth of experience in order to provide the best possible quality of care for his clients.
Andrew Wormald is a member of the British Acupuncture Council, whose aim is to ensure all patients receive the highest standard of professional care.
