About

Tamara Kircher, Lic Ac MRCHM MBAcC

Tamara is a practitioner of acupuncture and herbal medicine. Through her experience as a practitioner she has come to understand and appreciate the beneficial role of Chinese medicine in helping with mental, emotional and physical illnesses.  Every patient is diagnosed individually, and treatment is supportive for a wide range of conditions.

Working with her clients, Tamara has found that herbs with their cleansing, sustaining and nourishing qualities have a helpful effect alongside acupuncture. She may suggest taking Chinese or western herbs to support the treatments.

Tamara is a clinical supervisor and teacher at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine (CICM) in Reading. She works with students studying Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Five Element acupuncture.

Tamara trained at the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Leamington Spa, England graduating in 1986. She continued with studies in Paediatric Acupuncture under Julian Scott in 1987-88.  In 1992 she went on to study Chinese herbs with Michael McIntyre and Mazin Al-Khafiji. Tamara does on-going courses in Chinese medicine, alongside studying western herbs.  Her teaching also inspires her to continue with her professional development.

She is a member of the British Acupuncture Council and the Register of Chinese Herbal Medicine.

Tamara is the author of three books on Herbal Medicine; her most recent is Herbs for the Soul: Emotional Healing with Chinese and Western Herbs.
