The course is structured to support your intellectual, professional and practical skills development. Much of this is achieved through the use of themes that run through the modules and across levels. So in addition to the specific knowledge and skills required in Chinese Medicine: Acupuncture the course integrates clinical skills development, health sciences, personal and professional development and research skills.
The medical principles originating in China between the 3rd Century BCE and 2nd Century CE remain integral components of the healthcare systems of China, Japan, the Koreas and Vietnam and are practiced today on a global scale. These principles and their development over the last 2,000 years, together with a wealth of practice and research that is currently taking place worldwide, provide the basis of this professional entry course in Chinese Medicine: Acupuncture.
The Chinese Medical (CM) model has developed from a world view which focuses on qi and cyclical change, expressed in the concepts of yin yang and wuxing (five phases). CM applies these concepts to the person, and describes health and disease in terms of harmonious or disrupted patterns of qi. The concept of ’pattern’ (bianzheng) offers profound insights into the processes of illness and good health, which are becoming increasingly relevant to Western society.
