Heather Davidson - Oxford Acupuncture

Heather practices Japanese, Five Element & Traditional Chinese Acupuncture (TCM). She is qualified in very gentle “touch needle” Toyohari Acupuncture and has a broad knowledge of conventional Western medicine. She is a faculty member of the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading.

Heather's initial training was at the internationally renowned College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading, U.K, where she gained a BSc(Hons) and Licentiate of Acupuncture (LicAc). Her training also included biomedical sciences. She is now a faculty member at the college.

An interest in Japanese acupuncture led her to complete a post-graduate qualification in Toyahari, an advanced form of acupuncture that uses very precise methods for taking pulses and providing treatment. It was initially developed and practised by blind practitioners in Japan who are highly revered for their heightened sensitivity and perceptive skills.

It remains a growing and dynamic tradition of acupuncture, where practitioners train continuously in groups to improve their skills.
