Hampstead Heath Acupuncture
Inside Dino Karveli Hair Face Body
4 South Hill Park
Alex became interested in Chinese culture before he developed an interest in its traditional medicine. While studying Chinese in Taiwan he met a traditional doctor with great skill who opened his eyes to the potential of Chinese medicine. Translating for numerous patients who wanted to seek treatment from this doctor, he gradually became convinced that Chinese medicine had a great effectiveness in a wide range of ailments, including many that did not seem to be dealt with well from a biomedical approach.
This started a journey of deeper exploration into Chinese culture and medicine. After completing three and a half years of Mandarin, Taiwanese and Ancient Chinese study in Taiwan, he returned to the UK to study Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine and Tui Na Massage, the three main therapies of Chinese Medicine.
In August 2011 he set up Hampstead Heath Acupuncture with his colleague Odette Aguirre, with the intention of bringing first rate practice of Chinese Medicine to NW3.
