Being an Acupunturist
Becoming an acupuncture practitioner opens the door to an extremely rewarding professional career. It enables you to practice a natural system of medicine that allows you to help patients with a wide variety of physical and psychological complaints.
Created in 1993, this Acupuncture College grew rapidly to become one of the largest providers of acupuncture training in the UK. More than fifteen years on, and our acupuncture courses now have degree status, validated by Kingston University.
Acupuncture Training & CPD Events
The popularity and value of our programme of continuing professional development (CPD) events is well established. Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine practitioners from this and other colleges come to Reading to develop their knowledge and meet their peers.
