Jeff’s interest in acupuncture developed when his daughter was greatly helped by treatment. For several years she was completely debilitated with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and rarely left the house. Jeff pursued both conventional and complementary methods to help her. Acupuncture was the only treatment that helped and within six months she was attending school full-time again.
After seeing his daughter’s amazing recovery Jeff decided that he would like to pursue a career in acupuncture. He trained for three and a half years at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine, in Reading – one of the foremost colleges in the country and the first to teach an integrated style incorporating the Traditional Chinese style with the Five Element style of acupuncture. Jeff practises at Abergavenny Complementary Practice, Monmouth Natural Heath Centre and at his home in Bream, near Lydney, in the Forest of Dean. He is a member of The British Acupuncture Council and adheres to their Code of Professional Conduct, which governs ethical and professional behaviour, and their Code of Safe Practice, which sets benchmark standards for best practice in acupuncture. He considers himself fortunate to be able to practise such a natural and comprehensive system of medicine and experience the positive difference it can make to people’s lives.
