I like the fact...

I like the fact that the acupuncture course is so practical because I am already building up the skills to enable me to become a confident practitioner. The small class size means that all the students get a lot of individual attention. It is a very supportive environment in which to learn, which is really important.

Anne (Student)

I like the small teaching groups...

I like the small teaching groups and there is plenty of time and attention for any of our questions. I also like that there are a number of teachers for one subject we get to see different points of view.

Galina (Student)

The practical hands on approach...

The practical hands on approach is brilliant and all the teachers are really inspiring.

James (Student)

The teaching is excellent...

The teaching is excellent, the syllabus is very interesting and focused on the goal of teaching us to be competent clinicians in every aspect. I cannot recommend the course highly enough.

Isabel (Student)

Learning Tui na...

Learning Tui na has added a new dimension to my treatments which has been well received by my patients. The teaching on the course is excellent and the classroom facilities are good. Attending the City College of Acupuncture to study Tui na was one of the best decisions I have made.

Tina (Tui na student)

In hindsight Tui na was the missing link...

In hindsight Tuina was the missing link in my practice. It has not only changed the way I treat but also how I diagnose. My confidence in dealing with any presentation has markedly increased since the course. The trio of expertise in Sarah, Julia and Alex is unsurpassed.

Hugo (Tui na student)

I can't recommend this course highly enough...

I can't recommend this course highly enough; the teaching team are superb and the very practical nature of the course means that the learning is always relevant to practice. I use Tui Na techniques on all of my patients to a greater of lesser degree; having this skill to add to my 'tool-box' has positively transformed my practice. The lovely bright and spacious teaching room is the perfect learning environment.

Sue (Tui na student)

I think I am extremely lucky...

I think that I am extremely lucky to find this school and receive such compassionate treatments which have helped to improve my health a great deal. I do not know how to thank Isabel and Rie enough.

The three year acupuncture course has changed my life...

The three year acupuncture course has changed my life. I have got so many great new friends. The teaching was top notch, the structure and organisation of the course was superb and easy to follow. A whole new world has opened up!

Ella Nazar (Student)

The dedicated teaching and support...

The dedicated teaching and support I have received from CCA has been excellent. I really enjoyed the fact that tutors treated you as an individual and encouraged you to think independently. They were always around to give me help and advice. I enjoyed my three years at CCA immensely. It was a Life-Changing experience!!
