Zarig’s statement:

“I use the full range of Chinese medicine (acupuncture, tui na bodywork and herbal medicine) to provide treatments that are effective and to the point, always aiming to create a lasting effect from the outset.

No matter what the health issues are, I believe it is possible for anyone to move, live, exercise and work with more ease. My goal in treatment is to assist you in getting out of pain in the fastest way possible way, and in improving your health so you can stay in a pain-free state, able to fully participate in life.”

 

A bit of background: 

Zarig graduated from the London College of Traditional Acupuncture in 2008 with a BSc in Acupuncture and a diploma in Tui Na.  In 2018 he completed a diploma in Herbal Medicine from the Institute of Chinese Medicine.

Between 2008 and 2011 he went on three study trips to Zhejiang Hospital of Chinese Medicine in Hangzhou, China. There he trained with local hospital doctors specialising in the treatment of spinal conditions, practising further Tui Na techniques and applications.  

Between 2012-2015, he completed all of the London training programmes with Andrew Nugent-Head from the Association of Traditional Studies and has been on 3 internships at their teaching clinic in Asheville, USA. There he focused on developing practical skill with acupuncture and herbal medicine to treat serious physical injury and internal illness.    

Conny and Zarig both joined Andrew Nugent-Head’s teaching team in 2018, assisting at his seminar programme in Zurich. They are planning to run a CPD course on Ah Shi treatment in London in 2019.

Between 2011 and 2013, Zarig completed training in Functional Body Movement in the USA and now works with athletes who wish to improve their physical movement or recover from injury.

Zarig is active in the promotion of authentic Tui Na in the UK and has run CPD events as well as short Tui Na courses to encourage the spread of this effective treatment modality.  His article “Tuina – East and West” calling for higher standards of education and practice was published internationally in the Journal of Chinese Medicine and received supportive feedback from the worldwide Tui Na community.
