Siwan Quinn Bratton, BSc(Hons), Lic.Ac., CMIR, BSS-Do (T)

Siwan has been the course director for the College of Auricular Acupuncture and Secretary of the Society of Auricular Acupuncturists since 2007. She has had the privilege of teaching in China at the Beijing University of Chinese medicine. Shortly after her return to the UK, she was invited to be a part of the team at The College of Auricular Acupuncture. Her background is eclectic and varied, from Energy Work to Acupuncture to Shiatsu to Nutritional Healing. Siwan has an insatiable desire to help herself and others break barriers to leading life to the full and bloom with vitality and health. 

Life with the College has been and continues to be highly rewarding. When people tell me how much Auricular Acupuncture has changed their life or saved their life, it is very humbling. I love working with our learners from all corners of the globe and hope to be a part of Auricular Acupuncture becoming as widely used and highly respected in the UK as it is in other parts of the World.
