Hello and welcome to my first blog post!
I am currently studying Acupuncture at the Academy of Oriental Medicine in London. This is a thrilling experience that is taking me on a new and very interesting path!
I started this course as I have developed some kind of skill to fix people and make them feel better. This is also part of a project to bring my life all together and not have it divided between the work / family / viking life… i want to be able to be myself 100% of the time 🙂
And yes I said viking. I am part of a viking group in the UK, the Ulflag (www.ulflag.com).
Our activity consists in training twice a week (steel MMA sport) and do some public shows in the summer (or winter ^^) as well as some filming (Ancient Black Ops ep 5 & 6)
This viking / Norse part of myself is also why this website is called “Yggdrasil”.
Basically my life project is to bring everything to one place, to have everything flowing seamlessly, connect with people and most importantly be happy and make the most out of life :-).
Now why Acupuncture and Chinese medicine?
The skill i have developed over the years consist in being able to read where tensions and energy blockages or deficiencies are on someone’s body.
I could try to develop this talent on my own and treat people, but without more concrete skills and knowledge i doubt this would suffice.
With the Academy of Oriental Medicine I have access to a broad scope of skills and knowledge that encompass acupuncture, anmo, tui na, cupping, and broader energy work.
I thought this would anchor my talent into a concrete setting in which i could further develop it.
As a student, i am now far enough into the course that i can treat patients unsupervised! And i am now offering free treatments (donations are welcome). You can get in touch via the contact form or the Facebook page if you wish.
I made this blog as a way for me to dig deeper into the study of Chinese Medicine and bring it to you to demystify it! From the outside it can seem a bit obscure or confusing and so i will try to get you familiar with the Chinese philosophy.
That’s all for today folks!
