All Members of the British Acupuncture Council (M.B.Ac.C.) follow a Code of Practice which has been approved by the Department of Health. This lays down stringent guidelines for needle sterilisation and hygiene.
The British Acupuncture Council also maintains standards of education, ethics and practice to ensure the health and safety of the public. Members are covered by medical malpractice and public liability insurance. The Council has over 2000 registered members.
Malai’s love of nature inspired her to study this ancient system of healing, based on the laws of nature.
Acupuncture is rooted in an understanding of the elements and the seasons inside and outside of us.
For example the heart is associated with the fire element, which reflects the summer with its warmth and joy. The kidneys belong to water, basic vitality, survival, will power and the season of winter.
Malai trained at the College of Traditional Acupuncture, Royal Leamington Spa and qualified in 1985.
She had a further four years of advanced training both at the Leamington College and also at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading.
Malai has a Diploma in Psychosynthesis Counselling from the Institute for Psychosynthesis in London.
She ran a busy private practice in Brecon, Wales for many years.
Malai has 20 years experience of working with people and she is fully committed to her continued professional development. She is happy to refer people if I cannot help them.
She believes strongly in people's potential and life's continual opportunities for healing.
