Traditional Chinese Acupuncture & Oriental Medical Massage
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.
As well as my acupuncture qualifications I have a diploma in Tuina Medical Massage and have recently obtained a Level 3 Sports Massage qualification. I am pleased to offer a special blend of the best of these three disciplines in my Oriental Medical Massage Treatments.
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.
