I have been a member of NIMH since 1989 serving on various committees and have been chair of the education charity that is now called The Herbal Medicine Trust, previously the NIMH Education Fund, since 2008. We run courses under the Heartwood name. We also have a botanic physic garden in Forest Row, East Sussex at Emerson College. please go to heartwood-uk.net/home/team for more information.
As well as a herbalist I am an acupuncturist specialising in musculo-skeletal problems. My wife, Frances, and I run a dispensary that is open to the public Monday to Saturday, Hamblys Natural Health Clinic. We opened here in Sussex in 1999. There are many over the counter health products and lovely staff to help you. We have a multi-disciplinary clinic alongside the dispensary.
