The Healing & Acupuncture College

The College was set up in 2008 by Jamie Hedger a qualified acupuncturist with 25 years of treatment and teaching experience.

     We learn

  • All the core acupuncture theory online via set reading, video and assignments
  • TCM and 5 Element theory
  • Thorough health and safety training
  • Lots of practical work – Needling – Point location – Cupping – Pulse taking – tongue diagnosis etc
  • Clinical  – treating real patients under supervision

People often get discouraged from wanting to study acupuncture when they find that after three years of study they are likely to leave the college with around £35k of student loan debt.

Our students study for between 8 and 12 months and obtain a Certificate of Acupuncture. They can then join the AA and work safely and legally in the UK. We prepare our students for the real world of acupuncture by teaching the essential skills that you need to build a practice and help people. Acupuncture is a lifelong learning experience for everyone and our students continue to learn every day.

The online course enables students to work in their own way and at their own pace for a month between college visits. This means that most of our time at the college can be spent on practical end energy work including treating patients in a clinical setting.

Student Reviews


Graduated from the HAC Course 2018

The HAC acupuncture course with Jamie was exactly what I was looking for.
Being a body worker with a good level of anatomical knowledge, it has given me a safe and simplified foundation to offer acupuncture as part of healing.
I wanted to learn the practical, physical & energetic side to acupuncture within Chinese Medicine. The course delivered exactly that.
The learning environment is informal and relaxed yet safe and professional.
Highly reccomend this as a great base to understand TCM and acupuncture.

Having completed the course, my expectations were far exceeded. I am left with a sense of confidence and certainty in my ability as a practitioner and inspired to continue down the route of fertility and female health.

I feel honoured and privileged to have had the pleasure of hearing Jamie lecture. The topics discussed were delivered in a captivating and straightforward way. Most importantly, practical treatment approaches and fundamental principles in TCM and 5E were covered.
From day one there has been an emphasis on practice as much as on theory. Most days consisted of a lecture combined with demonstrations and student practice relevant to the day’s teaching.

We were introduced to a wide range of acupuncture techniques and equipment such as electro-acupuncture, moxa, cupping and various complimentary massage techniques to name a few. This allows us to practice and experience with confidence all that acupuncture has to offer.

During the post grad part of the course, we participated in lectures on topics such as sport injuries, auricular acupuncture, gynaecology, cancer and facial rejuvenation given by acupuncturists who specialize in those fields. The lectures were insightful and incredibly interesting.

In clinic (post grad) we treated patients under supervision. This allowed us to put what we’ve learned into practice and discuss and adjust treatment plans with Jamie’s guidance as needed. Throughout the course he was great for giving constructive feedback tailored to the individual student’s need and was always welcoming of questions.

As previously stated, my expectations of this course were far exceeded. I recommend this course to anyone interested in Acupuncture and healing. Sierra.

“Excellent course providing the opportunity to graduate as an acupuncturist in a reasonable time scale and at an affordable cost. As a graduate of the college, I would highly recommend this course.”

“A great college to have been a student of and what a great way to learn. The short Acupuncture course is long enough to make you into a confident practitioner without dragging on like some of the other courses. The Learning environment is friendly and professional in groups that are small enough to be personal yet still giving a group feel overall a great course at a good price and a great learning experience.”
