Dr. Daniel Keown is a registered and licensed doctor who currently lives and works in Tunbridge Wells in England. His lifetime aims are to mainstream acupuncture and Chinese medicine, and to surf some great waves! He completed a degree in Chinese medicine in 2008 and then wrote a best-selling book on acupuncture called The Spark in the Machine that shows how Chinese medicine, qi and the acupuncture channels can be understood from a scientific perspective. His second book – The Uncharted Body: A New Textbook of Medicine – takes these principles further to explain how acupuncture works to change qi and physiology in the body.
He is also the chief science officer for Ghostflower Activewear that make active wear with the acupuncture channels sewn into the fabric.
Dr Keown is a passionate believer in the power of living in harmony with nature, grows his own food and believes that Chinese medicine has the power to solve many of society’s health problems.
