Five Element Acupuncture Theory

 

Thank you for providing a very informative and thoroughly enjoyable course. I trained originally in TCM and it has been a pleasure to learn so much more about the five elements which have always interested me. Study with you has been a great benefit to me as a practitioner and an individual. The course material is complete in itself but it was lovely to also have a good bibliography (reading list) for further reference, I would recommend future students to take advantage of your guidance in reading matter.

Course Aims

Our aim is to nurture, assist and support every student to reach their full potential, through encouragement and inspirational empowerment to achieve excellence.

This course is open to qualified acupuncture practitioners.

You have each, in your time, qualified as an acupuncturist. The question was asked once, how long does it take to become a master in acupuncture: the answer is a lifetime of learning. Our course provides a very important step in your constant learning programme and adds another string to your bow, bringing you closer to being the best practitioner.

By enroling on our course, you will dramatically increase and widen your knowledge of the science of acupuncture, by understanding the power of the Five Elements and how it can benefit your patients. It will enable a balanced and complete diagnosis and treatment for your patients.

Five Element stands by TCM and is not a competitor, but a variation of treatment styles and beliefs, enabling expansion of your treatment regime.

This interesting and exciting course provides a Five Element thinking to your diagnosis and treatments.

Certification
On successful completion of this course, you will receive a certificate in Five Element Acupuncture Theory. It is understood by completing this program that, unless already fully qualified as a Five Element acupuncturist, you have been introduced to the theory of Five Element Acupuncture only and will not be able to claim to be a Five Element practitioner. As your own professional training consisted of your completing an extensive practical course, as indeed is the case for the practitioners who study Five Element Acupuncture. This course is intended as a first step, albeit a comprehensive one, on the journey.

Access: Once enroled, students can access the course for one year to complete their studies (as outlined in the Privacy Policy). FACIALENHANCE® / ICA reserves the right to amend the course access duration at any time, which will be updated in the Privacy Policy.
