MARK PORTER began his career in the allied heailth field 23 years ago, originally training as a General Nurse. He gained post graduate experience in Orthopaedics , Neurosurgery and Orthopaedics.In 1997 he qualified as an Osteopath after completing a four year full time degree at the British School of Osteopathy.
In 2004 he qualified as an Acupuncturist after studying for a further 3 years.This included a semester studying in China . Within the hospital acupuncture worked alongside modern medicine.
Mark uses acupuncture to treat conditions such as IBS, hayfever, sinusitis, lethargy and many other problems, although he stresses it is not a panacea for all ills. With this in mind he concentrates on the conditions that are most amenable to acupuncture.
It is important to distiguish between Acupuncture and dry needling, where in the later's case training can be as little as 2 days.
Mark continues to teach here and abroad and at present is studying in Prague.
The practice is centrally located in Wexford town at 3 Peter's square. Tel-053 9124890/ 0876778612. Also see www.wexfordosteopath
