Jess decided to train as an acupuncturist after having acupuncture herself for many years and realising its effectiveness.
Jess trained at the Northern College of Acupuncture in York. She received her license to practise after three years training. She is also a member of the British Acupuncture Council and sits on their editorial committee, the Acupuncture Childbirth Team (Oxford) and the Acupuncture Fertility Network.
Since graduating, Jess has worked at busy acupuncture practices in Edinburgh and Manchester before deciding to settle in Oxfordshire. In Oxford she provides both one to one acupuncture sessions and more affordable treatment at The Bigroom, a multibed practice.
Continuing professional development is an important part of Jess' work and she regularly undertakes courses that deepen and broaden her acupuncture skills. Jess volunteers with World Medicine, a charitable organisation, which provides complimentary health care to people around the world suffering the effects of trauma, disaster and poverty.
Before training as an acupuncturist Jess graduated with a degree in economic and social history and has also worked as a volunteer on a city farm, for a mentoring project and for a local environmental charity.
Jess is happy to answer any questions you have regarding treatment either by email or phone.
