About Aaron and Mimi

Aaron Deemer is a fully licensed acupuncturist (LicAc) and member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC), and has been treating since 2010. He is also a certified Qigong and Mindfulness meditation teacher. 

Aaron’s passion for Chinese medicine, Qigong, and meditation started while working and living in Beijing, China from 2003 to 2008.  Aaron received his licentiate in Acupuncture from the London Institute of Five Element Acupuncture, his Qigong teacher training at the College of Elemental Chi Kung, and his meditation teacher training at the Mindfulness Training Institute.


Aaron’s work in acupuncture, Qigong and meditation provides him with the foundation and, most importantly, the balance necessary to live a positive and healthy life. His passion is sharing this practice with others, and offering his patients the strength and space to develop their own capacity for health and well-being. ​​

In addition to this work, Aaron is also the founder and director of the Glow Fund (, a UK Charitable Trust that organises and funds orthopaedic operations for disabled children in China and Tibet.  In 2017 Aaron was awarded a Points of Light Award from Prime Minister Theresa May for his work with the Glow Fund.

Mimi Kuo-Deemer, MA, is the author of Qigong and the Tai Chi Axis: Nourishing Practices for Body, Mind and Spirit and Xiu Yang: The Ancient Chinese Art of Self-Cultivation. She teaches qigong, internal martial arts (6th generation lineage holder in Baguazhang) and meditation.


Born in the United States, she lived and worked in China for over 13 years before settling in the British countryside with Aaron and their dog, three cats, 5 chickens and 60,000 bees. 

She champions the balance of playfulness and precision as the best way forward in life, and never underestimates how sitting, breathing, and conscious movement grant the clearest and most compassionate perspective on the joyful yet mysterious, messy, and unpredictable job of being human.
