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 12 years ( in 2023 ) 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 textbook formulaic approach, Steven has developed a methodology that treats patients “in the moment”. His treatments are adapted to each patient, and develop organically, visit by visit, in response to changes and improvements in health and the environment

Before I opened my clinic here in Sitges I spent more than 10 years of intense study in London and Tokyo. Without the help and generosity of my teachers in Japan, I personally believe that it would not be possible to have the clinic that I have now. I am honored to pass this art onto fellow practitioners and of course, it is my patients who benefit and help the most with the transmission of this art.
