Dr Andrew Sikorski
Dr Andrew Sikorski first encountered complementary medicine practices, and was hooked on finding out more about healing, when working at the St Michael's Hospital Obstetric Unit in Bristol as part of his NHS GP training when a lady delivered her second child using only acupuncture and meditation/ hypnosis techniques. She complained she didn't have as much time to get into 'the zone' as she had with her first child! (cont'd)
