Course Introduction

The medical principles originating in China between the 3rd Century BCE and 2nd Century CE remain integral components of the healthcare systems of China, Japan, the Koreas and Vietnam, and are practised today on a global scale. These principles and their development over the last 2,000 years, together with a wealth of practice and research that is currently taking place worldwide, provide the basis of this professional entry course in Chinese Medicine: Acupuncture.
