Paul started his career in the Armed Forces; one of his roles whilst serving in Germany was as a physical training instructor. Since qualifying as a physiotherapist Paul has worked for several amateur sports clubs in and around the North West as well as running a private practice. He has lectured for the MOD and in both the Higher and Further Education sectors, teaching Physical Education, Sports Therapy, Massage and Acupuncture.
Paul completed an honours degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine at Salford University and has been practising Acupuncture for over fifteen years. He currently runs a very busy private practice in North East Wales and is a Senior Lecturer at Glyndwr University in Wrexham, lecturing in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Complementary Therapies. While Paul is fully conversant with using a wide range of traditional Chinese practices, his passion is using acupuncture for pain control and his case studies provide a rich source of efficacy.
Paul’s passion for acupuncture is very much linked to his desire to ensure people are trained to a high standard in acupuncture practice. While he enjoys sharing his knowledge and expertise with students he is continually developing his own knowledge and professional development.
Having joined the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (AACP), he became the AACP North Wales Regional Representative and in 2010 joined the AACP Board as a director. Paul is also an advanced AACP member and a Tutor and is very passionate about promoting Acupuncture and developing the profession with particular interest in supervision and mentoring. In July 2014 Paul was elected as the Vice President of the Federation of Holistic Therapists for Sports Therapy.
