A novel effort to train interested individuals to get quality expertise in acupuncture
Ipoh-based Tambun Acupunture Academy (TAA) is teaming up with Perdana University in offering a six-month certificate course in integrated acupuncture. Modern acupuncture uses the principles of medicine. As a matter of fact, it was recognised by the Ministry of Health Malaysia as a complementary treatment at government hospitals. Beyond Malaysia, the acupuncture modality was recognised by the World Health Organisation (WHO) in 2003. In its publication, Acupuncture: Review and Analysis of Reports on Controlled Clinical Trials, it recognizes 28 diseases, symptoms or conditions for which acupuncture has been proven to be an effective form of treatment. The WHO is the global authority for heath and health care within the United Nations system.
One of the most rewarding aspects of working as an acupuncturist is that you will be helping people through their pain and illness. As acupuncturists we support our patients to change their lives and often witness incredible and profound change. A number of patients are also likely to attend your clinic regularly for maintenance treatments and in this way you will treat people over many years. A benefit that students cherish most about studying is greater awareness of their own health and the opportunity to change their lifestyle. Acupuncturists can also choose to specialise in a particular area, for example fertility, stress and insomnia.
As an acupuncturist, it is likely that you will be self employed and many of our graduates enjoy being their own boss and the flexibility this gives them. Some work part time to fit around other commitments such as childcare, while other acupuncturists work full time. There are many different types of clinics to work in. From a solo practice to a multi-bed clinic or GP surgeries. As acupuncture students advance through the course, they experience more practical clinical work, as they build towards becoming competent and confident acupuncture practitioners.
During the course, we prepare you for setting up and running a clinic. By the time you complete this certificate course, you will have completed clinical observations with experienced acupuncturists; completed common treatment procedures and completed a business plan. We not only support you in becoming an excellent acupuncturist, but also in setting up a thriving practice.
