Mandy Laing

(Lic.Ac.) (M.AFEA) Acupuncturist & Mentor

Mandy is fascinated in the uniqueness of each and every person. She loves meeting new people and helping them feel fulfilled and happy in their own skin. She chose to study Five-Element acupuncture specifically because of its unique approach. She believes that when you find the cause of a problem (not treating or just alleviating symptoms) you are able to come up with a unique (very specific) treatment plan that addresses the root cause of that problem, allowing the body to naturally, and of its own accord, reset itself. She believes this is something very special she can offer her patients. She has also dedicated time in the teaching of ‘Point Location’ an invaluable skill she shares with our students.

Gareth Lovell

(Lic.Ac.) (M.AFEA) Acupuncturist & Mentor

Gareth worked for many years in the area of physical fitness and health and eventually trained to be a Five-Element acupuncturist.

Gareth is passionate about this ancient form of Eastern medicine and how it restores balance and harmony within the system by focusing on the root cause of any physical, psychological and emotional discord. Once the root cause of imbalance has been treated, the flow and quality of energy will be positively affected, eliminating symptoms and resulting in overall health, vitality and presence.

As well as being an acupuncturist, Gareth is a Zen meditation & mindfulness teacher and runs weekly classes across London. Since graduating, Gareth has been working in private practice in central and west London.
