Paulo Mascarenhas Franco has a BA in Modern Languages and Literatures – English and French Studies, and a MA in American Studies, with the dissertation "Pearl S. Buck – A bridge between the United States and China".

He began his professional life as a teacher of English (for 17 years) but his passion both for Oriental philosophies and medicine led him to have a BSc in Traditional Chinese Medicine and to undergo a hospital Acupuncture training in Nanjing, China.

Always eager to learn more to assist people to regain a healthy state, he further studied at the London College of Clinical Hypnosis.

For the last 13 years he has been a TCM practitioner and Acupuncturist, Hypnotherapist and Holistic therapist in Quantum Biofeedback, Tibetan Bowls Sound Healing and Quantum Touch®.

He lives with his wife and two sons in Lisbon, Portugal, where he has a clinical practice. And for the last 12 years, poetry has simply happened in his life as a blessing...
