Perdana University in Collaboration with the Tambun Acupuncture Academy
A public talk was held on 13th October at Perdana University by Dr K.Devi on acupuncture and how it can be used to treat common diseases. Following the talk, the team conducted a demonstration on some patients for ailments like arthritis, asthma, and lumbar pain.
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 changes. A number of patients are also likely to consult you 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. Some of them work in a group practice, others from home or rented premises. It is also possible to work in a multi-bed clinic or GP surgeries. There are also some clinics that run in hospitals.
As acupuncture students advance through the course, they will experience more practical clinical work and less theory, as they build towards becoming competent and confident acupuncture practitioners. On the course, we do all we can to prepare you for setting up and running a busy clinic. By the time you have completed this certificate course, you will have completed clinical observations with experienced acupuncturists; completed common treatment procedures and also completed a business plan which details what you will need to think about when setting up your practice. We not only support you in becoming an excellent acupuncturist but also in setting up a thriving practice.
Enrolment is on for a six-month course (classes during weekends).
Course begins: November 2017
