About Claire

My name is Claire Jones and I am a fully qualified, traditional acupuncturist working from quiet and relaxing clinics in Derby and Uttoxeter.

I have successfully completed degree level training at The Acupuncture Academy in Leamington Spa, where I was highly commended for my clinical skills. My training was extensive and covered all aspects of Chinese medical and acupuncture theory, with a focus on the Five Element approach. This means that I will consider your main health problem, together with a holistic approach for you as an individual.

My Regulating Bodies

The British Acupuncture Council

I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) which is the leading self-regulatory body for the practice of traditional acupuncture in the UK. It is a member-led organisation, governed by an elected Governing Board and driven by a specialist staff team.

They provide members with a wide range of services to facilitate practice and ensure the highest standards. Their responsibilities include:

As a member I am bound by the Council’s stringent Standards of Practice and Codes of Ethics

The Professional Standards Authority

The Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care is a government body set up to oversee statutory bodies that hold voluntary registers of health and social care professionals, such as the British Acupuncture Council.

Acupuncture in the UK is not covered by statutory regulation, and as such it was felt that distinguishing between acupuncturists who had undertaken short courses, and those that had undertaken more extensive study, was of interest to members of the general public looking for high standards of care.  The BAcC was an early member of the Professional Standards Authority’s ‘Accredited Voluntary Register’ (AVR), which recognises the fact that they maintain high standards of training, safe practice and professional conduct among members.
