Kim Kakebe LicAc BSc( Hons) MBAcC 2008
Kim trained at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading where she gained a BSc (Hons) degree studying Five-Element and TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) styles of acupuncture.
She is a member of the British Acupuncture Council and adheres fully to their codes of safe practice and professional conduct. She is licensed and fully insured.
Kim was born in San Francisco, USA and grew up in the surrounding area. Her family is originally from Japan, although her parents were also born in California.
She was exposed to health issues from a young age as some in her family experienced periods of poor health. From this she has grown to believe that one’s quality of life is greatly important and that this starts with feeling good in oneself. What life throws at you and how you handle it can have quite an impact on your health not just now, but years down the line.
Kim worked in publishing for more than 15 years, producing and editing books, a newspaper and magazines. Before moving to the UK, she worked for seven years in Brussels as a sub-editor and as production editor on publications focused on European Union affairs.
Changing directions and becoming an acupuncturist marks a watershed in Kim’s life. She has always enjoyed working with people and feels immense satisfaction when she is able to help others and finds that offering treatments is a great motivator to get out of bed in the morning.
