NADA GB 5 Point Protocol for Stress Management

Jamie is one of only 15 therapists in the UK qualified to deliver this training. He has been working for Early Break since 2007. He has a background in holistic therapies. Jamie’s passion for acupuncture began after sitting in on a treatment session, where he saw for himself the benefits of acupuncture. In 2008 he decided to learn the NADA 5 Point Protocol.

Jamie’s work ethos is person-centred so all his treatment interventions are client led. In 2012 he became Early Break’s Service Assessor and undertakes the yearly re-assessments for internal and external therapists. Jamie is based in Greater Manchester.
