BA(Hons) Lic.Ac MBAcC
My journey to becoming a qualified professional has taken three years of study at The Acupuncture Academy, Royal Leamington Spa (taking a short break to have one of my lovely babies!). Driven by my own treatment experiences and fascination of the power of acupuncture to help others, I decided to leave my job as an English teacher in 2015 to pursue an equally rewarding career in acupuncture.
I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) which is the leading self-regulatory body for the practice of traditional acupuncture in the UK. It is a member-led organisation, governed by an elected Governing Board and driven by a specialist staff team.
They provide members with a wide range of services to facilitate practice and ensure the highest standards. Their responsibilities include:
maintaining the highest professional standards of practice for acupuncture in the UK
overseeing and accrediting acupuncture education to ensure excellence in training
funding evidence-based clinical research on the benefits of traditional acupuncture
As a member I am bound by the Council's stringent Standards of Practice and Codes of Ethics.
I am also excited to be a member of the Association of Five Element Acupuncturists. You can learn more about this organisation and view my AFEA blog at: https://afea.co.uk/
