Peter Mole is one of the UK's leading practitioners of acupuncture, the Dean at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine, Reading and a founding member of the Executive Committee of the British Acupuncture Council. Peter’s particular interest lies in how Chinese medicine understands how people’s internal worlds - especially their emotions - affect their physical and psychological health. He states that “Western medicine is a great system yet it lacks an understanding of how stress and distress affect people’s health. However, this is one of Chinese medicine’s greatest strengths". We discuss the role of constitution in TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine), the difference between prana & qi, diagnostic methods in acupuncture and how Peter connects to and tracks the flow of qi through the needle. We cover the vital role of the emotions in health, and his experience of physical versus psycho-emotional orientations to treatment. Peter shares his thoughts on the value of finding meaningful work and loving relationships and the importance of building resilience in mind, body and emotions. He contextualizes the term Spirit in Chinese, shares a little of his personal travels in India and the importance of living in harmony with nature and the Tao. Peter is the author of "Acupuncture for Body, Mind and Spirit", directed at patients and prospective students, and co-author of the major textbook "Five Element Constitutional Acupuncture". He has lectured extensively in Europe, Israel, and the USA. Peter received an M.A. in Modern History from Oxford University. He has been practising acupuncture since 1978.
