Tom is a fully qualified member of the British Acupuncture Council, and practices acupuncture and tuina massage in Bristol. He runs private practices from Breathe Bristol, and the Natural Health Clinic, as well as a low-cost clinic from the same venue. He also works as an associate acupuncturist at Penny Brohn Cancer Care's Treatment Support Clinic.
Tom began his training in Chinese medicine in 2004, embarking on a 3 year full-time degree course at the University of Westminster. During his training, he treated the public in the University of Westminster Polyclinic, and the NHS Gateway clinic in Clapham.
He now enjoys treating a wide variety of patients and conditions, and regularly attends advanced training courses. These have included tuina (Chinese massage); pregnancy and childbirth; traditional pulse diagnosis; treating various kinds of physical pain and many more. In recent years, he has been studying advanced Classical acupuncture and bodywork techniques with Andrew Nugent-Head at the Association of Traditional Studies, and Dr. Edward Neal at the the Xinglin Institute.
Tom and his wife Kate - both ex-BBC employees - also produce videos and multi-media projects, mainly relating to acupuncture. Examples include the popular Manual of Acupuncture software - a training aid for students - and the Acupressure for Natural Pain Relief in Labour DVD, which Tom co-presents with Debra Betts.

Tom Kennedy treated me for over a year whilst I was trying to recover from a very serious spinal cord injury. His treatment program was bold, professional and completely invaluable to my recovery. Having little prior experience of acupuncture I soon realised how skilled and knowledgable Tom was in his field. His manner alone is soothing and durring treatments I would feel comfortable and relaxed. I cannot recommend his services more highly.
I have a chronic illness and have been seeing Tom weekly for some years. His treatments have seen me through some very difficult times, increasing a sense of wellbeing and calm and a sense of hope. He is unfailingly sensitive, calm, positive and empathetic and I cannot imagine my life without the weekly needles. In addition he is highly intelligent, reading widely on health matters and embarking on further training.
