ABOUT MARK

MARK PRESTON

In 1982 Mark discovered T’ai Chi Chuan and those meditative strengthening movements have been an important part of his life ever since. He was inspired to explore the world of “Qi” and Chinese Medicine.

In 1988 he qualified in Traditional Acupuncture from Prof. Worsley’s “5 Element” college in Leamington Spa. Further studies in TCM lead to his lecturing on The London College of Traditional Acupuncture’s degree course. Mark coordinated two of the modules on the acupuncture course.

Energy based exercises (Medical Qi Gong) as well as Tuina and Zero Balancing supplement the well-being strategies available in Mark's practice.

Since 1987 he has helped teach Tai Chi Chuan in London as part of a team through the Tai Chi Foundation ( www.taichifoundation.org ) and in 2014 he founded a new branch of the school, Thames Tai Chi & Qi Gong, in Cholsey, near Wallingford, Oxfordshire.

In 2002 Mark had the good fortune to work with his friend and colleague Joop Brouwer as a T’ai Chi advisor on the film “Calendar Girls”.
