About the college

The Healing & Acupuncture College - Diploma & Advanced Courses

The Healing & Acupuncture College is an independent acupuncture college founded in 2008 by Jamie Hedger. We are dedicated to training acupuncturists with a strong focus on acupuncture as a powerful mode of healing. Our curriculum places a great emphasis on teaching solid foundational acupuncture theory, including 5 Elements and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Above all, we prioritize the safety and competence of our students, ensuring they feel confident in their practice. This is why our course includes time spent attending the college in Somerset U.K.

As one Chinese master wisely said, “To be a master, you must master the basics.” We practice this principle through dedicated repetition and practice. Our students graduate with proficient needle skills, a deep understanding of Qi, and the ability to make diagnoses they can effectively work with. But it is when we approach acupuncture with an open heart that true healing takes place, and that is the mindset we encourage in our students.

We understand that each student has their own vision for their future practice. Some choose to incorporate other forms of healing into their treatments, while others pursue further academic study. We support and empower our students to make their own decisions about their practice and work once they leave our college.

To enhance their knowledge and experience, many of our students opt to pursue our advanced course. This program includes additional clinical practice, further enriching their understanding and skills.

Join us at The Healing & Acupuncture College, where we provide a solid foundation and empower you to explore the depths of acupuncture’s healing potential. Embrace the journey of self-discovery and choose your own path in the world of acupuncture. Whether you aspire to integrate various healing modalities or pursue continued academic study, we are here to support and guide you every step of the way.
