Throughout his martial arts he has used many sports injury and fighting liniments, and has a fascination with the design and use of them. He produces all of his own liniments which he uses in his clinics.

Chris completed his degree (BSc) in Acupuncture and a Diploma in Tui Na massage at the London College of Traditional Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine (LCTA). He holds an additional qualification in Qi Gong (Chinese exercise and breathing techniques) and has undertaken specialist training and education in the treatment of sports injuries, fertility treatments, cosmetic acupuncture and auricular acupuncture.

Chris has a thriving treatment clinic in Westerham, Kent, also offering classes in both Pak Mei Kung Fu and Qi Gong. Chris is a member of the pre and post-match treatment team at New Ash Green Rugby Club in Kent.[/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”Areas of expertise” open=”false”]
