ProfileAlex Owen

Alex Owen began his studies in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) under the tutelage of Dr Kai Lam Lee, in 1996. He studied at the Fook Sang Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Practitioners Training College for four years gaining experience in all aspects of TCM. His teacher was a very traditional practitioner, teaching him many folk remedies and herbal medicine which are rarely taught now-a-days.

When the college closed in 2000 Alex decided to start the five-year BSc course in TCM at Middlesex University. This was the first collaborative professional programme in TCM to be validated in the UK. During his time at Middlesex University Alex also gained his professional diploma in tuina massage and certificate in acupuncture first aid. For his efforts he was also recognised by the Association of Traditional Chinese Medicine and awarded the Prize for Excellence in TCM Studies 2005. He graduated with first class honours in 2005.

Alex spent seven months in China in 2004. He studied at two of the largest TCM hospitals in China's capital Beijing. The hospitals most prominent physicians tutored him on the latest techniques and treatment methods used in China. He gained extensive experience working on the cardiology, neurology, respiratory, gynaecology, dermatology, traumatology and paediatric wards.

After graduating Alex was invited to join the staff at the Asante Academy of Chinese Medicine who are the affiliated Teaching and Research Centre of Chinese Medicine for Middlesex University.

Motivation to do this work

"After completing Steiner Waldorf education I studied Biology. At that time I was interested in the human body but not medicine. I practiced Tai Chi & Kung Fu. This started my interest in Taosim where there were references to Chinese medicine. From this I was drawn to study chinese medicine"

Hobbies and Interests

I still do marshall arts Kung Fu & Tai Chi. I love reading more about Chinese medicine. Enjoy walking and raquet sports.
