My name is Andrea Joyce and I am a fully qualified traditional acupuncturist based in Warwick and Leamington Spa.
I decided to retrain as an acupuncturist having experienced the benefits of acupuncture for injury and chronic pain. I have completed a Professional Licentiate in Acupuncture (Lic.Ac) which is a three year degree level course including all aspects of Chinese Medical and Acupuncture theory, Western medical theory and a year working in supervised clinic. I continue to update my knowledge and skills on a regular basis by undertaking further continuous professional development (CPD) training. I have undertaken further training in Korean auricular therapy (ear acupuncture), NADA (National Acupuncture Detoxification Association) ear acupuncture, cupping and trigger point acupuncture.
I am a full member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) and work to their strict safety standards and professional conduct guidelines. BAcC members are also registered with the Professional Standards Authority (PSA) which is a body set up to regulate health and social care providers and is accountable to Parliament.
