I studied for my degree in Acupuncture – B.Sc. (Hons) – at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine (CICM) in Reading. The degree is awarded by Kingston University and accredited by the British Acupuncture Accreditation Board. This is a three year course which integrates Traditional Chinese Medicine with Five Element Acupuncture, as well as conventional medicine sciences.

I have also successfully completed a one year Diploma in Tui Na at CICM.

British Acupuncture Council

I am a full member of the British Acupuncture Council (MBAcC). This is the main professional body regulating acupuncturists in the UK. To be a member, an acupuncturist must have completed an approved course of training, commit to maintaining rigorous professional standards, and keep their knowledge up-to-date by undertaking Continuing Professional Development every year.

Membership also means that I am fully covered under their professional insurance scheme.
