PROGRAM - 2
ACUPUNCTURE & CHINESE MEDICINE, 2,160 Hours
Objectives: In China, in the past acupuncture is a traditional-form of surgery, ranged from acu-puncture to removal of tumors and cancers. However, the Chinese people also knew how to use natural medicines to turn the tumors and cancers into pimples or boils, and let them pop out of their bodies without cutting the skin and muscles opened. Therefore, you may consider that modern acupuncture is a sort of “deep-acu-massage”, which works very well with herbal chemical effects in healthcare. On the contrary, you may consider that the modern acupuncture is an acu-surgery, which can heal almost all kinds of illnesses, but might hardly damage any body-tissues. Therefore, we encourage you to enroll in this program to be able to keep yourself in good health and to serve your community, lowering down everyone’s medical expenses.
