After graduating in 1992 he moved to Worthing where he practised as an associate for four years. Then he and his acupuncturist wife Sarah opened Park View Acupuncture & Chiropractic Clinic.

Licentiate in Acupuncture

Registered General Nurse

Sarah grew up in Worthing and became a Registered Nurse. While nursing she sustained a back injury and found that Acupuncture was the only thing that actually helped her.

Sarah gained a Licentiate in Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine in 1992 from British College of Acupuncture. In 1998 she went to China where she received a Certificate of Beijing.

She finds that the experience she gained nursing at orthopaedic and gynaecological wards invaluable when helping managing the various conditions presenting at the clinic. She constantly updates her skills through post graduate study days and conferences.

In 1996 Sarah and her husband Jan (chiropractor) set up Park View Clinic, which now has two acupuncturists.

In 2000 Sarah and Jan had a daughter, Anya, who was born at home using acupuncture and homeopathy.

For a year she maintained the team’s fitness to the highest possible standards both during training and at international tournaments in both Norway and Italy.
