Doctor Seb Smith studied western medicine at Cardiff University and at the same time joined Lotus Nei Gong, studying under Neil Lodge and Damo Mitchell. This combination of western medicine and Chinese medicine has given him a two-pronged understanding of the nature of human health. With Lotus Nei Gong, Seb has studied various martial arts and has also completed a three-year-long teaching certificate in Daoist Qi Gong methods. As well as this, he has spent protracted periods studying in Sweden and in Thailand with Damo. Seb regularly contributes articles on Daoist philosophy, Nei Gong and medicine on this website.
