Tangible Acupuncture for Internal Medicine

CEU information: The NCCAOM has not approved this course for continuing education credit, as they do not accept online courses exceeding 20 hours. We will be remastering the course and submitting each individual module for learning credit in the future.

This in-depth training program is designed to take practitioners through the steps necessary to grasp the tangibility of acupuncture when treating internal disease. Moving beyond using acupuncture points for their book function to understanding how to profoundly affect the qi, practitioners will understand what to do at any acupuncture point, and why specific points are chosen in order to achieve great results.

While there is no substitute for hands on practice and clinical observation under skilled practitioners, this course is designed to offer practical and tangible training on what to do to create predictable, repeatable and reliable results with acupuncture needles.
