Our Acupuncture supervisors are all highly experienced and qualified acupuncture practitioners as well as being members of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC). Our students are studying for either a BSc or an MSc in Acupuncture and it takes three years of training to qualify as an acupuncturist. Alongside their study of acupuncture and Chinese medicine students also study Western medicine. Treatments are led by a third year senior student under supervision and assisted by students from the first and second year.
Our Nutrition clinic supervisors are all highly experienced and qualified nutrition practitioners and are members of the British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT). Our students are studying for an MSc in Nutrition Science and Practice, and some are already practitioners in other fields.
Our Chinese Herbal Medicine clinical supervisors are all highly experienced and qualified practitioners and are members of the Register of Chinese Herbal Medicine. Our students are all acupuncturists who are studying for an MSc in Chinese Herbal Medicine.
ACUPUNCTURE is suitable for people of all ages and for a wide variety of conditions. The treatment is widely considered to be beneficial for a range of symptoms resulting from illness or from clearly defined complaints, or to improve general feelings of well-being and help with relaxation. Conditions that respond to treatment with acupuncture are: nausea, vomiting, dental pain, temporary relief of pain associated with osteoarthritis of the knee (along with exercise and conventional medicine) relief from tension headaches and migraine-type headaches, and many more. If you would like to find out more about how acupuncture can help you, please call us to talk to one of our practitioners.
NUTRITION At the Northern College of Acupuncture nutrition teaching clinic we consider each individual to be unique and recommend a personalised nutrition and lifestyle programme rather than a 'one size fits all' approach. We never recommend nutritional changes as a replacement for medical advice and we refer clients back to their medical professional whenever necessary.
CHINESE HERBAL MEDICINE is suitable for people of all ages and for a wide variety of conditions, and you do not need to have a clear Western medical diagnosis. Herbal medicines can be used to dramatic effect in acute illnesses, but are just as valuable to treat chronic ailments and general health issues. The herbal medicine formulae work to restore the balance of physical health and emotional well-being which, in turn, encourages the body to heal itself more effectively.
You will be treated by a team of students under the supervision of our clinical supervisors. Together they ensure you receive the highest standards of diagnosis, treatment and care.
