Dr. Jenny Zhao, an acupuncture expert in Worcester
My Education and Training
I first started studying acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine in 1987. Now over 25 years later I run my own acupuncture clinic in historic Worcester city in Worcestershire and I am still as exciting and passionate as I was when I first began studying.
I studied in a medical university in China for 8 years to accredit with Master Degree and my instruction tutor is Chinese Medicine Grand Master Dr. Xue Wen Zhang who is a national treasure doctor in China.
My Working Experience
In 1996 I was fortunate to work in Guang An Meng hospital, the most famous Chinese medicine hospital in China, which is China’s only TCM hospital that boasts British BUPA accreditation. I have given thousands of patients acupuncture and herbal medicine treatments in the hospital and have seen acupuncture and herbal medicine help and benefit so many patients’ life and health. I can speak very good English then and gave acupuncture lectures and trainings to hundreds of overseas students from USA, Canada, Australia, Germany, France, UK. At that time I was young and ambitious, I was inspired and encouraged by my foreign students to come to West countries to fulfill my dream to set up my own acupuncture practice.
Practice in the UK
In 2000 I decided to move to Britain to work in a private clinic. I found the opportunities to offer an alternative solution to people who have experienced the limitation of Western practice. Very soon I felt I had the capability and confidence to set up and run my own acupuncture clinic.
In 2001 I had my own clinic and the acupuncture practice is a huge success. Over 15 years I have helped thousands of patients to get well, some patients said acupuncture and herbal medicine profoundly transformed their life and they experienced an increased feeling of well being.
Ten years ago acupuncture was often a last resort for patients, now it becomes many patients’ first choice. As an acupuncture expert in Worcester I feel proud acupuncture is becoming a part of mainstream treatment in the UK.
Although I miss the challenges of the busy hospital in China, where I was a consultant, nowadays I much enjoy the success of my own clinic in the UK. I can help so many patients and meantime I can find my new life balance with my son, my daughter and my husband in the UK.
