“A conference is more than just a series of lectures; it is a place to meet friends, old and new, to share ideas, debate with passion, and to smile and learn…”

– Paul Hitchcock, CEO of The British Acupuncture Council

 The Hundred Meetings Conference hosted by the British Acupuncture Council was held in Reading this year and was promised to be ‘the personal and professional development opportunity of the year’ – and it did not disappoint.

With an expected turn-out of over 400 practitioners and students, we knew the weekend was going to be successful and a lot of fun.  

The twenty-eight guest speakers promised to cover a wide range of acupuncture and oriental medicine topics to tempt all interests and specialties.

We brought a lot to the table – literally! We tried to showcase our range of acupuncture needles and our excellent range of Moxa products – as well as our Aura teas and the chance to sample some of our goji berries and long yan fruit. We even had a ‘guess the herb’ game to try and test you all and of course, our pick n’ mix of needle samples were as popular as ever!

A conference like Hundred Meetings isn’t just a corporate event for us at Phoenix. It was a great chance to meet so many of our customers – old and new. It is always a pleasure to put names to faces and for you to see how we work as a company and how dedicated we are to providing you with the highest quality products. We want to raise awareness of our brand and expertise, but also build a sense of trust between us and yourselves so that you know we are doing the best for you and your patients.  

We believe that practitioners should be comfortable with the needles they use to deliver good quality treatment – so we encourage acupuncturists to try before they buy. If you could not make the BAcC Conference or haven’t got round to trying out needles, please do request a sample pack at https://www.phoenixmd.co.uk/sample-request.

Our needles are triple polished and silicone coated and the feedback we’ve received from you is that you love our needles, because they are so smooth. We also offer needles with or without guide tubes, as well as needles with a 5 in 1 guide tube - so there is something for everyone!

We received great feedback from the weekend and are already looking forward to the next event. Thank you to all that came and said hello!
