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 with a Chinese Herbal Medicine Specialization. Let your education from MUIH broaden your toolkit, so you can offer more.
The program approaches from two healing traditions, Constitutional Five Element Acupuncture (CFEA) and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), with contemporary science as the basis for treating the whole person. The programs provide a comprehensive understanding of the classical and theoretical foundations of the field of acupuncture and introduce students to biomedicine from an integrative and holistic perspective.
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.
“I gain the knowledge, skills, and abilities that are important in complementary medicine practices; to optimize health, quality of life, and clinical outcomes to patients. Healing presence, wellness and prevention, patient-centered care, and evidence-informed data are the pinnacle of MUIH’s gold standards. I am excited to join the discussion on improving public health with other health-care providers through this lens.“
