Biog. “My path into medicine started at St Bartholomew’s Medical College, London, where I qualified in 1981. I then gained subsequent positions and qualifications in emergency medicine, intensive care, anaesthetics, paediatrics, obstetrics, gynaecology, and general practice.

I began my classical acupuncture training in 1982 with Prof. Jack Worsley at the College of Traditional Acupuncture. After eleven years of study and practice I was awarded the title 'Acupuncture Master', however I continued to apprentice with him for another 8 years in this country and abroad. I am member of the General Medical Council and also a fully accredited member of the British Medical Acupuncture Society. Now even after over thirty years of being involved with studying, practicing  and teaching acupuncture I realise all the more, there is still so much to learn. Classical Acupuncture is not something to learn over a couple of weekends. It is a life time of study and even today I still feel humbled and amazed in observing the physiological processes in restoring a person's natural capacity.

In my early career I travelled around the country working in a variety medical positions until I left the NHS in 1988. It was then that I decided to return home to my ancestral roots of Malvern, where I initially set up the Clinic of Classical Acupuncture. During this time my wife observed the way people got better,  such that she chose to retrain as a Classical Acupuncturist and then together in 2003, we moved our growing practices into the centre of Great Malvern to establish the Beacon Clinic, now a centre for integrated medicine. Then after raising my family I returned to university in 2012 to commence an MSc in Western Medical Acupuncture.

Along with running the clinic and my practice, I prioritise having regular individual one on one mentoring, supervision sessions, update myself in conventional medicine, the latest scientific research of acupuncture / moxibustion and trainings to develop my classical acupuncture skills.

My journey has also involved me being a director of training and lecturer at the College of Traditional Acupuncture, a medical advisor to both the British Acupuncture Accreditation Board and British Acupuncture Council, and a guest lecturer at several universities and colleges. Sue and I run a local acupuncture support group. I am at present making preparations to teach the art of classical acupuncture and its many associated skills on to the next generation.

It is not all work, I love walking on the Malvern Hills every day with my dog, I enjoy singing. I began learning karate and aikido when I was 20 and various other martial arts however I am now a retired taekwondo instructor (2nd degree black belt) and for the last few years I have been practicing the gentler art of Tai Chi (Yang style).

Sue and I have three daughters Kate, Bethaney and Sophie.

About Dr Martin Allbright

Personal Testimonials

“Martin, As I embark on my new adventure, I just wanted to say ‘thank you’ for all your magic and part in getting my ‘twinkle’ back. I really appreciate it and I’ve learnt some lessons!" HS Cheltenham

"Martin I’d like you to know that I feel I am indebted to you. You helped me be where I am now, both physically and psychologically with your needles and sound magic, your empathy, your kindness, your friendliness. Thank you! You are an outstanding magic healer!" ET Malvern

Martin's reply to the above

"Any healing, restoring of health, call it what you like, arises from inside each person.

Acupuncture, tuning forks, moxa, or sound, are all tools or methods which facilitate helping restore a person's own natural capacity back to normal.

The 'magical' homeostatic mechansims lie in each individual person and not the doctor / practitioner / therapist."
