You’re a helper, and you care. You just need more tools that help you bring relief to your clients. They might have sensitivities to medication, food intolerances, and many other concerns, but you’ve got solutions. As an acupuncturist, you provide care for pain management, women’s health, chronic illness and particular physical, mental, and emotional conditions. With these healing skills, you can enhance wellness for patients as a Master of Acupuncture. Let your education from MUIH broaden your toolkit, so you can offer more.
The Master of Acupuncture (MAC) program was the first accredited master’s degree program in acupuncture in the United States (1981) and continues to provide students with a comprehensive curriculum combining rigorous classroom teaching and a rich clinical experience. With Master of Acupuncture degree, you’ll learn the skills needed to practice gua sha, qi gong, acupressure, cupping, and the use of needles.
In the uncertain times of the COVID-19 pandemic, I’m often asked “how is work going?” This exchange usually leads to the person asking me: “How can your students do acupuncture via telehealth? You can’t needle someone through a screen.”
That statement highlights a widespread misconception of acupuncture. Most Americans don’t realize it is but one tool in a larger medicine; most think of acupuncture as “treatment with needles.” What else can an acupuncturist offer without their needles? The simple answer: A lot.
“When I started looking at Acupuncture schools I was immediately drawn to MUIH. I had heard great things about the school from my Naturopath Doctor and my Acupuncturist. When I learned more about the 5 Element Acupuncture Tradition that is taught at MUIH I knew it was the place for me.”
