Informal Research & Education

The field of Complementary medicine has become more and more academic since Alan began his studies in the 1980’s.  Over the last 30 years, due to the lack of research & formal academic education providers available, Alan’s passion for understanding the ancient energy systems and their application in the modern world has lead to him personally researching this subject.  He has studied the theories, methods & practices of Medical Herbalists, Homoeopathy, Nutritionists, Acupuncturists, Osteopaths, Remedial Massage Therapists, Psychotherapists, NLP Practitioners, local Shamans, Witch Doctors, Healers, Medicine Men, Wise Men, Elders, Native Americans, Waitaha and Sangoma and several mainstream orthodox  therapists. This passion for research and learning has taken Alan across the globe, to over 36 countries to date, with the aim of developing an advanced knowledge in the field of energy medicine by studying other cultures and their indigenous philosophies and health systems, whilst resourcing phyto materials at the same time.
