Anthony Sigrist
Tony came to the vocation of acupuncture after a long career with the Metropolitan Police Service where his roles included developing strategy. He started his studies at LCTA and was in the very early stages of his degree when the college went into liquidation. Thanks to the generosity of the Northern College of Acupuncture he was able to resume his studies almost immediately and graduated in 2013 with first class honours.

After graduating he established a clinic in a multi-disciplinary practice in Ely, Cambridgeshire where he currently practises. As well as his love of acupuncture, Tony is also a passionate ambassador for mental health and is CEO of a charity, Talking FeELY, which he founded earlier this year to encourage and facilitate open and honest conversations in support of those suffering the stigma of mental illness.

Inspired by his experiences with LCTA, Tony began working with the BAcC at a very early stage of his studies, sitting initially on the Student Services Advisory Group. After graduating he served on the BAAB, helping to safeguard the high education standards of acupuncture. Now a member of the governing board, Tony looks forward to strengthening the voice of the membership in shaping the future of our profession.
