Steven studied acupuncture at the University of Westminster in London where he gained a B.Sc Honours degree. He went to Japan to further his studies and, in 2003, began training under Edward Obaidey*

Steven trained with Edward-sensei for more than 5 years before returning to Europe to open his own practice and develop the skills he learned in Japan. His Sitges clinic has been running for eight years (@ 2018) and attracts patients from all over Europe. It was during his time in Japan that Steve perfected his unique approach, combining the disciplines of traditional Japanese acupuncture, moxibustion, shiatsu and herbal medicine, to varying degrees, to improve and augment the health of his patients. Instead of using a text-book formulaic approach Steven has developed a methodology that treats patients “in the moment”. His treatments are adapted to each patient, develop organically, visit by visit, in response to changes and improvements in health and the environment
