About | Giuliano Sacchi

Giuliano Sacchi has had an acupuncture practice in London since 1990 and completed his initial training at the College of Traditional Acupuncture in Leamington Spa, one of the first schools to bring acupuncture to the UK in the 1970’s. The style of acupuncture taught had its roots firmly based in the Japanese five phase tradition (see Meridian therapy). After some years in practice, he undertook further training in specifically Japanese styles of acupuncture, impressed by its gentle, systematic and effective approach to treatment. In addition, as a practitioner, he places great importance on the establishment of strong rapport with the patient as a key aspect of the treatment process

In 2007 he embarked on a Master’s degree in Chinese Herbal Medicine at the University of Westminster, receiving a postgraduate certification in Chinese Herbal Medicine in 2008.
