I trained for three years at The College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading for my Licentiate. This is where I formally studied Five Element Acupuncture, TCM Acupuncture and Patent Herbs, in addition to Anatomy, Pathology and Physiology. Later, I studied for a further year in order to convert this training into an accredited Bachelor of Science Honours Degree. Since that time, I have been in continuous practice and have extended my professional knowledge-base by achieving accreditations in, amongst other things, Bio-Magnetics and Tuina. As a Member of the Complementary Medical Association, I am bound by the Society’s strict Code of Ethics and have to undertake regular training modules as part of my on going professional development.
