  Bio

Following on from his degree from the University of Ulster and racing as an international level cyclist, Colin travelled extensively and lived in China for a number of years, learning Chinese and much about Chinese culture. Life in China, his personal experience of Chinese Medicine in both Ireland and China, and his study at The Jade Sun School (see below) led to him experiencing a deep-felt drive to learn and practice Chinese Medicine.

This resulted in him studying acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine in Beijing, Dublin and Nanjing. He also carried out clinical internships following doctors in very well regarded Chinese Medicine hospitals for a number of months in China.

After graduating he set up Morning Star Acupuncture Sandycove and Morning Star Acupuncture Ratoath – Ashbourne with the intent of providing heartful healing to all that wish to receive it.

He has, over a number of years, completed the syllabus of The Jade Sun School, which seeks to help students connect with and understand the essence of their humanity and express this into all aspects of their life.

  Ideals For Treatment

The origins of Chinese Medicine were wholly intuitive. Taoist sages had engaged with practices that allowed them to live in connection with the deepest parts of themselves and to use that depth to help treat the ill. This meant that they could affect the deepest parts of their patients, touching upon and helping overcome the effects of the cause of illness at the most profound levels.

The spiritual achievements of these sages stand to us all as an example of what we can achieve if our intent and energy are used to explore and understand our inner selves and the purpose of life. We can learn to change from using our energy in an attempt to find meaning in the outside world, to understanding that only when we discover the beauty that exists in the depth of our hearts and habitually express this into the outside world can we truly interact in harmony.
