Acupuncture is an important branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Like all other partners in this astonishingly effective medical system, it has its roots in Taoism, which was the predominant belief system in China at the time acupuncture began - many thousands of years ago.
Acupuncture works on a deep level to help patients recover their physical and mental harmony. Not only can it restore the health of mind and body, as increasingly recognised by the Western world, but it is also a powerful form of preventive medical therapy. Whether acupuncture treatment is used for restoring health or preventing the development or recurrence of a condition, it helps patients to balance their mental and physical harmony.
Traditional Chinese acupuncturists spend years respectfully training with revered Masters, learning to diagnose and treat patients appropriately according to ancient principles. Treatments and special acupuncture and acupressure points are passed down from one generation of TCM acupuncturists to another in a medical family, to form a vast body of knowledge. Throughout this powerful and comprehensive course you will learn the skills, techniques and the background to know and understand more about this formerly-mysterious healing art.
