Andrew Wormald PhD, LicAc, MBAcC, DipTn.

Acupuncture, Acupressure, Tai Chi & Qigong Specialist

I started my Tai Chi journey in 1999 with a wonderful teacher who had studied traditional Yang style Tai Chi in the lineage of Dr Chi Chiang-Tao (Qi Jiangtao). He also studied Tai Chi and Qigong with Dr Shen Hongxun, and as my interest deepened I went on to attend many weekend and residential courses with Dr Shen. I had the good fortune to study with Dr Shen for around ten years before his passing in 2011, and, since then, have continued to practice under the guidance of Shen Jin and other teachers in Dr Shen’s lineage.

My interest in these practices led me to study Chinese language and philosophy at university, and this culminated in a PhD researching the history of Buddhist meditation in modern China. These studies afforded me the opportunity to live in China for a number of years, to engage with original Chinese sources on self-cultivation practice, and to discuss the finer points of philosophy directly with Chinese speaking teachers. In addition to my interest in Tai Chi and Qigong, I make my living as an Acupuncturist and use my knowledge of this healing art to help students at my Tai Chi and Qigong classes.
