What our
students say


Having the opportunity to train in something I have wanted to do for a long time under both Michael and Paul is such an incredible privilege and a valued opportunity. The course is delivered with a passion and breadth of knowledge that can only come from their years of experience; their enthusiasm for the subject has enhanced my own leaning experience.

I would encourage anyone who has an interest in health and well-being, either professional or personal, to enquire further with the team at ICA and discover the range of learning and opportunities available.

The delivery and content of the 5 Element Diploma has been beyond expectations with tutors readily sharing their vast experiences and resources.

Being part of the ‘family’ at ICA and having the opportunity to train alongside such knowledgeable practising acupuncturists has just been an amazing experience. Looking back on our first weekend, it helps me appreciate the huge amount of learning that we have already done, even though it hasn’t felt so overwhelming due to the support of our tutors and each other as a group.
