The main focus of our Acupuncture course is to build a strong foundation with the classical theories and diagnostic skills of Chinese Medicine, on which the practical application of Acupuncture as a treatment will be built upon.
The course includes an introduction to the history of Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture, an in depth look into the basic theories presented in the classical texts, Chinese Medicine diagnostic skills and syndrome differentiation, safety in acupuncture, a wide range of acupuncture point locations, and an extensive look into the practice of acupuncture along with practical applications of the various modalities associated with Acupuncture, such as Cupping, Moxibustion, and Gua Sha. The course also includes detailed treatment protocols for a wide range of common conditions seen in a Chinese Medicine clinic.

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese method of natural healing by inserting extremely fine needles into certain areas beneath the skin and manipulating them. It has been used safely and successfully in treating disease for over 3000 years and recent extensive studies in the UK show there to be no serious side effects. It’s rationale is that when the body is diseased and out of balance, the manipulation of needles at certain points located along the body regulates the flow of vital energy (qi) and blood, and therefore restores balance to the organs and tissues.
