Hello, I’m Mark Brereton and i’ve been an active practitioner of Japanese and Chinese arts since 1990. I first became interested when i bought my first book on the Ninja from a local book store. The book contained the most beautiful color prints I had seen at that time. From then on my journey started in 1991 practicing Martial Arts such as Lau Gar Gongfu and moving onto Taekwondo, Shotokan and Shorin Ryu Karate. Later, in the early 2000’s i started to practice Hatha Yoga, Tai Chi and Nyingma Buddhism.

From then on i have explored a mixture of Far East Arts including – Calligraphy, Printmaking, Fine Arts, and many various Arts, I then specialized in energy arts and now work as a professional Holistic Health Arts & Visual Arts Practitioner. Some of the arts i practice include – Reiki, Kiko / Qigong, Anma Massage, Ikebana Floral Arts, Karatedo, Iaido, Non-sectarian Buddhism and Meditation are what I now practice and offer to a growing client base. My visual arts practice is inspired by Shodo – Way of the Brush, and i create large canvas paintings that have emotional connection with my life/work/practice and with Japanese culture, history and philosophy.

I originally trained as a graphic designer and lectured in Graphic Design at Staffordshire University and the University of the Arts London. Due to ill health and stress i left the academic world and needed to heal myself from a long history of arrhythmia and pleurisy.

Laying on the A&E hospital bed low in energy, restless and my heart beating at a rate of 228bpm the arrhythmia and my heart had told me to stop and listen. From this near death experience i now listen to my heart very carefully, and i can honestly say i put my heart into my health and life.

I now focus on Japanese Health Arts - Usui Reiki, Kiko, Anma and Buddhism.
