Duncan Ford BA (Hons) Lic.ac MBAcC – Registered Traditional Acupuncturist

Duncan Ford white-2

My name is Duncan Ford Ba (Hons), Lic.ac, MBAcC Cert KHT, I obtained my First Class Honours Degree in Traditional Acupuncture at CTA in Hatton. Which, before its closure, was the oldest college of Acupuncture in Europe. I have full membership with the British Acupuncture Council which is the leading regulatory body for the practice of acupuncture in the UK.

My first contact with acupuncture was through the world of Chinese martial arts, in particular Taijiquan and Qigong, which I have been a student of for the last 13 years. I feel my interest in this internal martial art has lead me to understand the fundamental building blocks that underpin the foundations of Traditional Chinese medicine.

I am fully committed to the practice of acupuncture and continuously work to develop myself professionally, so as to be able to provide the best possible care for my patients. I regularly attend postgraduate courses to further develop myself as a practitioner and to deepen my understanding of this living tradition. I have also trained in many different styles of Traditional Acupuncture including Five Element, TCM, Tungs family lineage, Tans balance method, Japanese Acupuncture and Korean Hand Therapy.

In addition to my training in Chinese massage techniques such as Tuina, Gua Sha and cupping, I am qualified in western Sports Massage and I have developed Oriental Medical Massage sessions in which I combine the best of western and eastern massage tailored to your individual needs.

If you would like any information about how I might be able to help you, please get in touch through the practice.
