Who We Are

Jamie Hedger

I studied acupuncture at 3 independent colleges in the UK and I worked as a teacher and clinic supervisor in one of them for 13 years. I set up my own college in 2008 in Hove although now I live in Bath and run courses here.

I specialise in blending the philosophy and approaches of the different colleges I trained with into my teaching and my own courses (5E+TCM & More). I also have my acupuncture practice in Bath.

I am interested in Healing and Self-Development and I probably read more current than traditional philosophy. I have found that my interpretation of the power and effectiveness of acupuncture has been influenced both by modern thinking and traditional ideas.

One reason why I run a shorter acupuncture course is that I think we always need to challenge the view that things should stay as they are. Acupuncture has never stood still, that is why there is so much theory and scope for interpretation and so much potential for anyone who takes it seriously. Im also conscious of the fact that the challenges we face now are very different than they were even 50 years ago.

I carry full public liability insurance as a teacher and practitioner. I am always happy to communicate with anyone who is considering the course so please feel free to e-mail or call me
