Elaine Gorrie Acupuncture

After completing an honours degree from King's College London, I joined the Civil Service. Following an accomplished and successful career spanning more than 13 years, I decided to change direction and trained, firstly in acupuncture and subsequently in Chinese herbal medicine, at the London College of Traditional Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (LCTA). I hold Licentiate Diplomas in acupuncture Lic. Ac.) (2002) and Oriental Herbal Medicine (Lic. O.H.M.) (2004) and I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council and the Register of Chinese Herbal Medicine. I have also recently qualified in Hypnotherapy, attaining a Hypnotherapy Practising Diploma (HPD) in 2010.

Qualifying in Oriental medicine in the UK requires comprehensive study and qualification in Western medical science and pharmacology as well as in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
