My name is Julia Bliss. I trained in acupuncture at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading, learning both the TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) and Five Element systems of acupuncture. I decided to learn and practise acupuncture after having treatment myself and seeing how much it can help people with all kinds of problems. Since qualifying in 2001 I have worked both from home and from the Health Hydro in Swindon. I am a fully insured member of the British Acupuncture Council, and licensed by the Local Authorities in Swindon and Cirencester to practise acupuncture.
