Andrew Kemp has been in practice since 1984.
He originally trained at The College of Traditional Acupuncture in Leamington Spa for three years, followed by one year with the Journal of Chinese Medicine which led him in a different direction than his initial training. Following two further years training in Chinese Herbal Medicine, when his tutor was the renowned practitioner Giovanni Maciocia, he studied for one month at Nanjing Hospital in China.

He has lectured extensively in Acupuncture and TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) both in the U.K. and abroad and he was the first External Examiner for the Acupuncture degree course at Westminster University.

As a senior lecturer on the post-graduate Chinese Herbal Medicine course at the London College of Traditional Acupuncture,he instigated contact with Hangzhou TCM Hospital, subsequently running more than twelve trips there with students for clinical observation between 1999 and 2010.
This exposure to ‘front line’ Chinese Medicine has greatly influenced the way he currently practices.His work and research with some of the best TCM doctors led him to be awarded ‘Honorary Visiting Doctor’ status in 2005.
He currently practices at The Filshie Clinic on Monday and Thursday.

Please feel free to contact him personally if you would like to discuss treatment options before booking an appointment.
