Introductory course in acupuncture

Acupuncture is defined as a healing technique that has its origins in traditional Chinese medicine that involves inserting fine needles into specific points wired to energy streams in our body called “meridians”, helping to improve, maintain and / or restore the flow and energy balance. In this seminar students will learn the theoretical and philosophical foundations of Traditional Chinese Medicine and therefore, acupuncture. The necessary information for understanding this will be provided and addressed from a practical level with simple treatments for better comprehension.

This introductory course to acupuncture is suited for people who wish to make a first approach to Traditional Chinese Medicine, and discover the uses and benefits of acupuncture, its theoretical basis and its application in Western culture, allowing them to decide whether to deepen in this therapy while acquiring basic knowledge for self-treatment. It will also be useful for those therapists who, working other disciplines, are interested in acupuncture as a complementary treatment to their own therapies and methods.
