Michael Clements is a Registered Acupuncturist and member of the British Acupuncture Council.
Michael developed an interest in Acupuncture whilst doing post-graduate research at the School of Oriental and African Studies. He is trained in both 5 Element Acupuncture (College of Traditional Acupuncture, Leamington Spa) and TCM Acupuncture (College of Integrated Chinese Medicine, Reading). He began practising in SE London and Sevenoaks in 1993 before moving to the West Country in 2001.
Michael is also qualified in Auricular (ear) Acupuncture for substance misuse and Facial Revitalisation Acupuncture. He has worked on a voluntary basis at the Recovery Club for stroke patients, Queen Mary Hospital, Sidcup and at present at the Elmslea Rehabilitation Centre for the mentally affected in Launceston. He runs regular clinics in Plymouth, Launceston and Callington.
Michael feels it is important to get the message across that Traditional Acupuncture is a part of a system of medicine designed and developed to treat a wide variety of symptoms and conditions. He is pleased that Acupuncture has gained greater recognition and credibility in the West in recent years.
