Our acupuncture training course is founded on the application of theory to the practical situation which is always supervised. Students do lots of private study to achieve the standards required for safe and effective practice.

Our acupuncture training course gives each student the opportunity to practice needling acu-points, accurately and deeply. Students experience first hand the uniquely different effects and sensations of acupuncture.

Ultimately, the ability to use Shiatsu with acupuncture greatly enhances the effectiveness of treatment for all conditions. Shiatsu provides an ideal practical base on which to build Acupuncture.

Just one needle DU 26 cleared his back pain.

The combination of Acupuncture with Shiatsu creates powerful medicine

Our carefully controlled acupuncture point combinations are practised both in class and used for your out-of-class case studies. They help you build up mega confidence in treating all kinds of musculo-skeletal conditions as well as internal problems on a wide variety of people. By the time you take your exams, you are experienced enough to work as an acupuncturist.

Most of the other schools do not give you this hands-on training and tend to teach basic TCM theory as an academic exercise since practical clinical acupuncture only comes in much later in the course. However long the course, understanding the complexities of TCM does provide a lifetime of interesting study.

This acupuncture training course is accredited by Acupuncture-Acutherapy Council. The BODYHARMONICS Acupuncture Diploma enables you to practice professionally in the UK and gain insurance.

“I was able to integrate acupuncture into my shiatsu practice with immediate and positive effect. Maria’s enthusiasm and love of real Chinese acupuncture as practiced right now in Chinese hospitals is inspiring, and her belief in the efficacy of this dynamic style of acupuncture is extremely motivating.”

“TCM and traditional needling techniques are paramount in Maria’s teaching. The course is structured in such a way that the learning from both an academic and a practical perspective consistently builds upon strong, repeatedly reinforced foundations. With each weekend the students’ knowledge & needling skills are gradually expanded.

Having progressed through the usual academic route of school examinations & degrees, I can confirm that the teaching is to a very high standard. This is one of the best courses I have ever attended in terms of sheer fun!   Read more…..”
