Ian graduated from the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in 2007 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Acupuncture and has been in practice since. Ian is a member of the British Acupuncture Council, the lead professional body representing over 3000 acupuncturists in the UK. As a BAcC member he is bound by their codes of professional conduct and safe practice ensuring the highest standard of treatment.
Ian’s interest in acupuncture came from experiencing treatment. Fascinated by the mystery of Chinese medicine and having experienced great changes from treatment he chose to go on and study acupuncture in 2003. As his practice has developed he has built up extensive experience in the areas of fertility, IVF, menstrual problems, insomnia, IBS and Migraine along with many other conditions.
Having worked with many couples attempting to conceive naturally and those going through assisted conception Ian is a big believer in acupuncture being able to offer support at what can be a very trying time.
