Course Summary

Acupuncture has been identified to be a useful therapy for many conditions. It has become widely accepted as a complementary and integrated treatment. Yet, there remain several basic questions in the research and amongst clinicians related to how acupuncture works and whether individuals are reporting a placebo effect. Acupuncture has been around for many years with a rise in its integration into conventional Western medicine. The purpose of this course is to provide health clinicians with knowledge about acupuncture as a form of complementary and integrated healthcare.
