Students at ICOM study a three year Acupuncture course accredited by the British Acupuncture Accreditation Board (BAAB) in connection with the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC), the main professional body in the UK. All our clinic practitioners and teachers are fully registered, licensed and insured.
The clinic serves as a teaching clinic for these students, providing superb opportunities for them to observe experienced acupuncturists at work. This enables them to learn their art, through direct exposure and under the close supervision of highly-skilled registered acupuncturists.
Group Sessions (Years 2 & 3)
These are held with a small group of second or final year students who are fully supervised at all times by an experienced registered acupuncturist.
Supervised / Trainee Clinic (Final Year Students in Year 3)
These are one-to-one treatments with a final year student who has achieved the required standard of proficiency to be able to treat patients. Treatment is always under the supervision of a highly-experienced registered acupuncturist.
Students will take a detailed history of your health along with any relevant medical information. Anything discussed during the appointment will remain completely confidential.
These sessions last approximately an hour and a half (one-to-one) or two-and-a-half hours (groups).
PLEASE NOTE: Due to variable scheduling, student clinics can only be booked by telephone and not online. Please call our reception on 01342 313 106 to book.
