James trained at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading, with post graduate studies at The University of Westminster and in more recent times to study palpation and clinical skills with one of his teachers – Dr Wang Ju-Yi in Beijing.
He has been teaching students in the Reading College for over 10 years and has worked as an acupuncturist in a number of roles, from within the NHS treating substance misuse, numerous homeless projects as well as private practice work.
He is passionate about acupuncture and its part in helping people to regain quality of life, be that out of pain, sleeping better or feeling well in themselves.
He has been involved in clinical work abroad since 2003, running several clinics for Tibetans living in South India and in Sri Lanka post Tsunami. As co-founder and Chair of World Medicine (2009-2011) he worked as part of a team sending groups of practitioners to Gaza, India and Sri Lanka.
More recently this passion has taken him to Burma where he lectured at the University of Traditional Medicine in Myanmar and helped in teaching clinics and outreach projects for Myanmar acupuncturists working within their community.
His work is based in the UK where he sees private clients at thepractice, Totnes.
