I’m Ian Simmonds. I’m an acupuncturist, surf-bum and all round gypsy/jack-of-all-trades. But mostly I’m an acupuncturist.
I’ve been practising acupuncture for ten years, having graduated from the London School of Traditional Acupuncture in 2005. I worked full-time in clinic for five years and have since travelled about treating new friends, family, strays and random strangers, spreading needle-love wherever I roam.
I’ve also taken a number of long breaks to set up and run drop-in, multi-bed clinics where I treat locals for free in Australia, Thailand, Bali and Banda Aceh after the boxing-day tsunami.
Some of the year I live on the Isle of Wight, sometimes I’m in Bali, sometimes I’m somewhere else chasing waves…
I am currently based in Bali from November 2015, so if you fancy getting needled, contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
