About the Author

John Hamwee has been a practicing acupuncturist for over 20 years and is a teacher of acupuncture and Zero Balancing. He previously worked as a Senior Lecturer in Systems at The Open University, UK, for whom he wrote numerous textbooks. He practices in London and the Lake District, UK.


If you are new to acupuncture and have had your fill of descriptions of syndromes and management, then this will be a refreshing read. Those who have been practising for some years will also find it a useful book because it encourages reflection f what you started out to do how you now carry out your treatments and the evolution of your management of your patients.

Acupuncture for New Practitioners is not only a book about how to develop your practice, but also one about developing yourself as a practitioner. It increases your empathy with your patients, and describes how your working practices may sometimes impinge on your ability to get the best from each situation.

-- Journal of the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists
It would never occur to me to reach for a book like this. And yet, I can easily say that Acupuncture for New Practitioners by John Hamwee has had the most positive impact on how I practise since I qualified, and that these results have been immediate...Aimed primarily at the recently qualified, this book is recommended for any acupuncturist needing a bit of advice or inspiration. -- European Journal of Oriental Medicine. Vol 7. No.2. 2012.
This is a thoughtful, practical and inspirational guide addressing many of the common issues that arise in the first years of practice. Using questions to help focus the reader and meaningful anecdotes to illustrate the journey to be travelled, John develops a blue print for holistic development. It is a delight to read and will aid the path to artistry and mastery in one's professional role. How I wish it had been available to me in my early days of practice! -- Alison Gould, acupuncturist and Accreditation Officer for the British Acupuncture Accreditation Board
Acupuncture for New Practitioners is an acupuncture book like no other. It addresses intangible qualities that cannot be measured by test scores. Rather than tell us what to think or what to do, this wonderfully honest book by a wise and experienced practitioner instructs us on how to think and, perhaps more importantly, how to be. Every chapter contains pearls of wisdom, gently yet firmly guiding us toward finding our own truth, both as practitioners and as human beings. The author reminds us to be present in every moment and dares us to continue to learn and grow. He provides a pathway for fostering compassion, competence, and confidence, and for transforming knowledge and skill into wisdom. This book will prove invaluable not only for new practitioners but also for those of us with decades of experience. -- Eugene London, DAOM, Dipl.Ac. (NCCAOM), L.Ac.
I can easily say that Acupuncture for New Practitioners by John Hamwee has had the most positive impact on how I since I qualified, and that these results have been immediate... Hamwee uses his experience of both his own development as a practitioner and of teaching recently qualified acupuncturists to offer nine chapters of very practical advice. The tone is kindly, almost avuncular, and the pages are filled with personal stories and anecdotes... this book is recommended for any acupuncturist needing a bit of advice or inspiration. -- Mel Koppelman, acupuncturist * The European Journal of Oriental Magazine, EJOM *
