I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) which is the leading self-regulatory body for the practice of traditional acupuncture in the UK. It is a member-led organisation, governed by an elected Governing Board and driven by a specialist staff team.
They provide members with a wide range of services to facilitate practice and ensure the highest standards. Their responsibilities include:
- maintaining the highest professional standards of practice for acupuncture in the UK;
- overseeing and accrediting acupuncture education to ensure excellence in training;
- funding evidence-based clinical research on the benefits of traditional acupuncture.
As a member, I am bound by the Council’s stringent Standards of Practice and Codes of Ethics.
