about Jane

I have been a senior lecturer at Westminster University since 1998 with responsibilities for teaching various aspects of the BSc undergraduate course in Chinese medicine: Acupuncture, and also Course Leader for MSc Chinese medicine: Acupuncture and Module Leader for the Master's module, Acupuncture: A Living Tradition.

I have been a practising acupuncturist since 1992. I also am a physiotherapist, trained at The Royal London Hospital 1974-1977, and have been a member of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and the Health Professionals' Council since this time. I am also an Advanced Member of the Acupuncture Association of Physiotherapy.

I worked in the National Health Service from 1977-1987, including the role of Senior physiotherapist on the neurosurgery ward at St. Bartholomew's Hospital London. In 1980 I travelled to study and work in the Centre for Neurological Rehabilitation in Toronto, Canada.

I qualified as a teacher in 1985 and was awarded a Diploma in Teaching Physiotherapy from The Middlesex Hospital central London later moving to teach biomedical subjects at the London School of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Throughout this time I also worked in specialist outpatient clinics in Harley Street Dance clinic and 'Meridians', a practice in Weymouth Street central London.

I have completed courses in Shiatsu with Bernard Nolan and later spent one year (1989) training at Nanjing University in Chinese medicine: Acupuncture under Prof Xiao, Prof Zhou and many others, ably assisted in translations by You Ben Lin and Sun Pei Lin.

In 1993 I became a member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC). I completed a Master's degree in research methods from Kings College University of London in 1994.

I started up my own practice, 'The Treatment Room', in 1998, situated in a creative media hub in Shoreditch near the City of London, where I still have a vibrant private practice. During my career I have held many roles, for example I was a member of the Education Committee of the British Acupuncture Council, being part of the working party that developed the first syllabus for Education Guidelines for Acupuncture as well as running a Consensus Building Exercise on Unity in Diversity for the membership of the BAcC. I am a fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
