Welcome to The City College of Acupuncture

Looking for a fresh start in 2016? Thinking of a change of career? Wanting to make a difference or put something back? Studying acupuncture with us could be the life changing experience you are looking for!

Traditional Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture and Tui Na medical massage are becoming increasingly accepted into the medical mainstream. Acupuncture is used in a wide range of settings from private practice, pain management clinics and care homes to the NHS. Our highly experienced teaching team of Acupuncture and TCM professionals have known and worked with each other for many years. Their passion for teaching has given them a strong desire to create student-centred, practical, hands-on courses that are really relevant to the modern clinical environment.

Our courses have been designed to create fantastic practitioners. We are committed to providing high quality degree-level training delivered in small groups with the highest professional standards of practice. Our in-depth teaching will also provide you with an understanding of conventional medical science that will enable you to engage with patients, GPs and other healthcare professionals. We fully support moves towards statutory regulation of Acupuncture by the Department of Health and embrace a concept of integrated healthcare that sees Acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Tui Na as complementing the prevailing forms of Western healthcare.

I like the fact that the acupuncture course is so practical because I am already building up the skills to enable me to become a confident practitioner. The small class size means that all the students get a lot of individual attention. It is a very supportive environment in which to learn, which is really important. "

Anna, acupuncture student

The teaching is excellent. The syllabus is very interesting and focused on the goal of teaching us to be competent clinicians in every aspect. I cannot recommend the course highly enough. "

Isabel, acupuncture student

Learning Tui Na has added a new dimension to my treatments which has been well received by my patients. The teaching on the course is excellent and the classroom facilities are good. Attending the City College of Acupuncture to study Tui Na was one of the best decisions I have made. "
