Medical Acupuncture for Physicians Course

Medical Acupuncture for Physicians presents the foundation of acupuncture science and theory, channel and point location, needling techniques, approaches to diagnosis and therapy, and patient management. It is a practice-oriented program that creates a sophisticated structure for the intelligent use of acupuncture. The course gives full dignity to both contemporary biomedical science and the medical tradition found in classical Chinese texts, and enables you to adapt acupuncture creatively into your clinical environment.

“I have never before participated in such an intense, stimulating and consistently excellent learning experience.”
