Your Acupuncturist

Joop Brouwer graduated from The College of Traditional Acupuncture (UK) in 1997 and has been in practice since then. He is a teacher at The College of Five Element Acupuncture and is a Professional Development Lead with the British Acupuncture Council. 


As well as practicing acupuncture at Croftlands Practice in Lancaster, Joop practices acupuncture at Lancaster University at the Natural Health Care Centre, offering acupuncture treatment to staff and students.


After serving in the Royal Netherlands Navy for 7 years, Joop studied Social Sciences and did his dissertation on the treatment of Post-traumatic Stress Disorder. He then worked as a counselor in the Netherlands Health Service. Being able to offer his patients a more holistic form of treatment led him to study acupuncture. 


As a member of the British Acupuncture Council Joop is committed to ensuring all patients receive the highest standard of professional care during their acupuncture treatment.


What Patients Say

I have been a patient of Joop Brouwer for over 10 years. I have found him to be totally professional. His explanations of the treatment are thorough and his manner is considerate and caring. I have total trust in him and have no hesitation in recommending him.


Christiane Prince

I have known Joop for many years, first as a tai chi teacher and then as an acupuncturist.

Courteous and good humoured, Joop has patiently guided me from first appointment for a breathing allergy to a point where acupuncture (and t'ai chi) are an integral part of my life - I would not be without either.

And my breathing, and general state of health, is so much better!


Anthony Nixon


Joop is very kind. He is a good listener and brings calm, comfort and serenity to his treatment. 
After a session I feel reposed, re-invigorated, and a sense of well being. I recommend Joop without reservation.
