2017-06-06: York Integrative Acupuncture--Advanced Practice Certificate Program

An  East-West approach to acupuncture for practitioners who aspire to advance their practice with the best of both worlds.

Integrate and apply the most practical eastern and western acupuncture skills including advanced dry needling techniques, neuro-myofascial meridian testing, and neuro-stimulation techniques.

The Integrative Acupuncture: Advanced Practice Certificate program balances Eastern and Western medicine through an integrated approach to acupuncture.

Most “integrated” acupuncture programs teach Eastern and Western acupuncture side by side without demonstrating how to incorporate the skills and knowledge from both approaches into practice. This advanced program is the first of its kind to teach a fully integrative approach to treating physical medical conditions such as pain and neurological conditions from a biomedical approach, while providing holistic patient-centred care through a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) approach.

The program is designed for health professional looking to advance their practice. You will learn how to develop more effective treatments by applying the latest advanced dry needling myofascial trigger point therapy, neuro-myofascial meridian testing, and peripheral nerve stimulation techniques as a form of therapy in modern clinical practice. At the same time, you will learn how to obtain Di Qi and address the Yang Ming, Shao Yang, and Tai Yang region through integrative physiatrics.

  • 6 hours of cadaver practical lab for applied acupuncture anatomy.
  • 15 hours of clinical skills practicum. You will have the opportunity to work hands-on with real patient volunteers through supervised group treatments.
