Lee Moden

BSc Hons (Acupuncture), Lic.Ac, MBAcC

Lee lives with his wife and two children in North Tawton, Devon and has been practicing complementary therapies for over 25 years (20 years as a full-time acupuncturist).

After 10 years in the I.T. sector, and a childhood desire to help others, Lee followed his early childhood interests in oriental philosophy and Chinese medicine and looked to understand the deeper roots of illness and disharmony.

After studying Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Five Element acupuncture at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading and graduating in 2002 Lee founded the The Jade Pathway Centre in Cambridge. He later returned to the college to further his study, receiving a first class honours degree and was a Regional Support Tutor for the college for four years.

Lee regularly attends continuing professional development training and has attended many courses with teachers such as Dr Teh-Fu Tan,  Dr Volker Scheid, Dr Vivienne Lo and Joan Duveen and completed training in advanced Shen-Hammer pulse diagnosis as well as a six month postgraduate course in classical/Daoist acupuncture with Roisin Golding to deepen his understanding of the ancient core texts including amongst others, the seminal Huang Di Nei Jing.

Lees other passions include martial arts. Lee began training in Wado-Ryu at the age of eight which continued for around twenty years at which point he began Aikido and later travelled to China to explore the Chinese forms. He also attended Qi Qong training with Zhixing Wang and the late Dr Shen Hongxun.

Originally self-taught in translating classical Chinese, Lee now attends Elisabeth Rochat de la Vallée’s translation study group to deepen his understanding of the ancient Chinese classics and is the author of The Yellow Emperor’s Toad Classic (A translation of the Huangdi Hama Jing 黃帝蝦蟆 – A Classical Chinese Medicine Prohibition Text).

Lee Moden acupuncturist and BAcC Member

An interest in Eastern practices led Lee to meditation at the age of ten and at fourteen, was introduced to several different systems – providing his first contact with the Daoist philosophy (the same philosophy and wisdom that underpins classical Chinese medicine).

This connection grew and for many years Lee sought authentic guidance in these practices until he was finally introduced to his Daoist teacher. Lee sees the Daoist cultivation and view of life as integral to bringing clarity and sensitivity to his work, informing his overall approach to the care and treatment of others.

Aside from enjoying precious time with family, Lee also practices Chinese calligraphy.
