Medical Acupuncture Diploma
One of the ancient medical procedures in the world, Acupuncture traces its origin to China more than 2000 years ago. It gained popularity in the United States when in 1971 New York Times journalist J Reston wrote about how his post-surgery trauma was eased by the doctors in China with the help of needles. The term acupuncture means a group of procedures that involve the stimulation of the anatomical points on a human body using various methods. The practice of acupuncture in America blends medical traditions from various countries like China, Korea, Japan and others. The most scientifically studied acupuncture technique is the penetration of the skin with the help of thin, solid, metallic needles that are done either by hand or electrical stimulation.
