Fletcher Kovich was born in 1960 in the UK. His early training was in electronic engineering and music, and he worked as a music teacher, then a technical author in the software industry. In 2001, he began training in Chinese acupuncture and in 2005 he set up his own Chinese acupuncture practice in Bristol, UK. In 2016, he published a groundbreaking book on Chinese acupuncture, which provides a new explanation of how acupuncture works and also clearly describes the key aspects of Chinese medicine in terms that today's readers can understand. Since 2017, he has been conducting a research project to obtain objective scientific data to validate his "intelligent tissue" hypothesis on what acupuncture is and how it works. He has already published several scientific papers describing the results.
Praise for Secrets of the Hidden Vessels"The book is fascinating. And from the teaching perspective, it is a great tool to help students understand the organ functions. The book also uses an interesting approach to explain the mental and emotional factors in causing disease, which again will greatly assist in the teaching of this aspect of Chinese medicine." - Brandon Fuller, Program Chair, East West College of Natural Medicine, Sarasota, Florida."We have come across many books on Chinese Medicine and particularly like this book's approach of blending the Western and Chinese understanding of the organs, to make it clear that both systems describe the same organs. There is a global paradigm shift in medicine, and the importance of Chinese Medicine in understanding the body and health plays a key role in the West's acceptance of alternative approaches to healthcare." - Sam Patel, Joint Principal, The International College of Oriental Medicine (UK)
