I work to the highest professional standards.

I have  a specific interest in understanding the development of high level expertise in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine and received a first for my research dissertation on this subject.

I meet and exceeds the British Acupuncture Council  (BAcC) professional standards for Acupuncturists as defined below. (The BAcC is the main body representing Acupuncturists in the UK. You can find out more about the BAcC by visiting www.acupuncture.org.uk)
