Acupuncture in Podiatry

Training Courses

In 2000, I was commissioned by Southwark NHS Foot Health department to develop a training programme for their staff.  This was the first acupuncture training in the UK to serve specifically the needs of podiatrists.  The course was validated by the Society of Chiropodists & Podiatrists, and ran annually for a decade.  All of the clinical podiatrists in Southwark were trained, and used acupuncture regularly in their work.  It became a regular feature in the pain clinic.  Acupuncture was used similarly in podiatry departments in other areas, such as Ayrshire & Arran, and Derbyshire County PCT.

Currently this course is being updated to reflect research and developments during the past decade.  As before, it will offer a comprehensive introduction to the safe clinical use of acupuncture in podiatry, drawing on the evidence base, physiological principles, trigger points, and insights from the Chinese traditional approach.

I am happy to discuss training needs with individuals or groups of acupuncturists or podiatrists wanting to develop in this area.

I have extensive experience of teaching acupuncture.  In the 1970s I was

co-director of the teaching clinic for the British College of Acupuncture, and

a member of its board of governors.  I served as external examiner to the Norwegian School of Traditional Acupuncture.  I was Chair of the Education Committee of the British Medical Acupuncture Society and taught on many of its basic and intermediate courses.
