What is Acupuncture

The power of acupuncture to restore the health of body and mind is increasingly recognised throughout the western world. Acupuncture has an extraordinary ability to change people’s lives.

Acupuncture works on a deep level to help patients recover their physical and mental harmony. Acupuncture is becoming ever more popular in the UK, and opportunities for both independent practice and within the NHS are growing all the time. Acupuncture is viewed very positively by the House of Lords Committee, the British Medical Association, and the World Health Organisation.

Acupuncture Training Course

CNM’s Acupuncture Diploma Course provides high-quality acupuncture training that equips graduates to build extremely successful practices.

The course is carefully structured so each study unit builds on the previous one. This allows students to develop their confidence and acupuncture skills and reach their full potential as professional acupuncturists. Students are strongly encouraged to develop their own unique style of consultation and application.
