About me

Thanks for taking the time to read this. I am Warren.

Apart from my love for the outdoors, I am passionate about Acupuncture and Qigong as preventative and complementary therapies for maintaining balance and wellbeing. I practice meditation and Qigong and try to align myself with the seasons and cycles of nature.

For many years I ran a small organic gardening company, having run a small business and being a parent I understand fully the expectations placed on us in this modern world where stress, pressure and speed all seem to have become the norm.

At a very young age, I was introduced to Chinese philosophy by my late father. As time passed I felt a yearning to travel; I did just that where I devoted time to studying Taoism and Buddhism. I returned from my travels and studied at the Royal Horticultural Society where my burning desire to work with nature and later energy, was fueled further. Spending much time with plants and the outdoors I found it easier to connect with the cycles and rhythms of nature. This gave rise to a strong interest in the Five elements. 16 years ago I witnessed firsthand the remarkable recovery that can be made with energy work and intention. This led me to the path of working with Qi and devoting my time to learning as much as I could to be able to share and help others. I am a Five Element Acupuncturist, Qigong instructor, Meditation teacher and Reiki master.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a Five Element Acupuncturist,  passionate about Qi/energy and its effect on our wellbeing. As a practitioner, I always aim to not only address the problem at hand but also investigate the root cause of the imbalance. Working collaboratively with you, I aim to work within a treatment plan framework, aiming to help restore balance and wellbeing. I have an interest in and have attended CPD courses on Acupuncture for Fertility and reproductive health and Acupuncture for the management of pain.

I am also a certified meditation teacher with the British School of Meditation and a Qigong Shibashi instructor under Master Wing Cheung at the Tai Chi, Qigong and Feng Shui Institute. I have also trained Qigong with the Daoist training centre under Sifu Lingchao and am a British Health Qigong instructor. During the lockdowns of 2020 I took my Qigong classes to Zoom and ran over 1000 classes connecting with people from around the globe. I am a Reiki Master and a member of the UK Reiki Federation. I have also collaborated on breathwork retreats and am grateful to be able to connect with so many wonderful people on my path.

Further information

With its roots in ancient Chinese Medicine acupuncture is now widely offered all over the world. Acupuncture is generally described as the insertion of very fine sterile needles into specific points on the body for therapeutic and preventative purposes, but anyone who has experienced the many layers of its healing affects will know it is so much more.

What some of my patients have reported back

"I  have had two sessions so far for chronic fatigue that I have been experiencing for a few years. Honestly it was like a veil was lifted and I haven't felt more energized since I was in my twenties. He was even kind  enough to show me some Qigong exercises for me to actively improve my issue between sessions. I highly recommend Mr Swartz."

Cam G. Honiton

"We have been visiting Warren to support us through fertility treatments. We appreciated his knowledge that far extends Acupuncture. After each weekly session we both leave feeling energised and positive about the journey ahead." 

Happy couple, Exeter

"I wanted to try Reiki as I am interested in alternative therapies and felt this might help with general well being. I enjoyed the sessions with Warren, feeling relaxed and then re-energised after, sensing his “skill” in this discipline and being personable, I felt at ease. I would recommend him."

Rob, Forest row, East Sussex

I have tried many therapies and practitioners whilst learning to live with chronic fatigue syndrome/ME. But not Reiki - I didn’t think it was for me - until I met Warren. His passion for Reiki is tangible and I now find my sessions to be the grounding part of my week and a cornerstone of my recovery"

JHG, West Hoathly, West Sussex

"I went to Reiki with an open mind. It was a calming experience, but more interestingly it unlocked in my mind things that I had shut away for a long time that perhaps I should have dealt with years ago... I would happily try it again "

Ben, Dormansland, Surrey

"Warren has a wonderful intuitive way of working and is definitely a very calming influence. I always look forward to my Reiki treatments and find them so relaxing - I often fells as I’m dropping off to sleep! I have found these treatments to be a great way to release tension and restore balance to both my body and mind. You can be sure you are in safe hands with Warren and i would have no hesitation in recommending him "
