About me

Jacqueline Manning Brown BSc (Hons), LicAc, MBAcC, Dip Tn

I graduated from the renowned College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading, where I studied both Traditional Chinese Medicine and Five Element styles of Acupuncture. This means  I am able to offer a holistic approach to healthcare alongside an awareness of how our individual narrative and life experience can impact on both our physical and emotional health.  I believe that Acupuncture can help you to be as well as you can be and to realise your potential.  Having gone on to receive a Diploma in Tui Na (Chinese Medical massage), I can also offer this as a stand-alone treatment or integrate it with Acupuncture.

I am licensed by my Local Authorities and a member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC), which means I am bound by their strict Codes of Professional Conduct and Standards of Practice and fully insured to ensure you receive the highest standard of professional care.  My clinics are based in Reading and Woodley but I also cover the surrounding areas of Newbury, Bracknell, Wokingham, Windsor & Maidenhead.

I am also trained to use the NADA (National Acupuncture Detoxification Association) acupuncture technique, which is known to benefit victims of trauma and was widely used following the terrorist attack on the Twin Towers in New York and other catastrophes around the world. NADA involves the placement of one to five points in the ear and helps patients with sleep, anxiety, grief and addiction.  It brings a sense of calm and relaxation and helps the body to heal itself.

As a Reiki practitioner, I can incorporate this with Acupuncture and/or offer it as a stand-alone treatment.
