 Training in Traditional Chinese
             Medicine
When you're ready to achieve your degree or
certificate in one of the world's most
ancient healing arts, then you should
acquire training in traditional Chinese
medicine (TCM). With programs ranging from
certification in Tuina (Chinese medical
massage) to a doctorate in Oriental
medicine, the educational options are wide
open.
To earn your masters in acupuncture and
Oriental medicine (MSTOM), training in
traditional Chinese medicine entails anatomy
and physiology, pharmacology, acupuncture
and Oriental medicine (fundamentals,
diagnosis, and treatment); acupuncture point
locations, applications and theory;
acupuncture and needling techniques;
auricular acupuncture (ear acupuncture), Tai
Chi, Qi Gong, Chinese herbology, Eastern
nutrition, Tuina, moxibustion, cupping, and
more.
If you're interested in becoming a
professional doctor of acupuncture and
Oriental medicine (DAOM) practitioner,
comprehensive training in traditional
Chinese medicine is critical. While courses
vary with respect to prerequisites, general
doctorate programs require a great deal of
commitment; usually over 1,200 training
hours. In addition to philosophies,
principles and training in traditional
Chinese medicine (and advanced studies of
the masters program), coursework includes
family medicine, medical Chinese language,
and application of Chinese classics, among
others.
Some training in traditional Chinese
medicine colleges includes associate and
bachelor degree programs as well. These
courses are often geared toward Eastern
holistic health, nutrition, and herbal
medicine.
If you're strapped for time but want to
acquire some training in traditional Chinese
medicine, you can apply to one of the many
Asian bodywork or Tuina certification
programs. In addition to learning about
anatomy and physiology, students enrolled in
these programs gain training in traditional
Chinese medicine theories and philosophies,
instrumental Tuina hand and structural
techniques, Shiatsu, acupressure, Qi Gong,
as well as basic CPR and first aid.
If you (or someone you know) are interested
in learning more about these or other TCM
programs, let professional training within
fast-growing industries like massage
therapy, naturopathy, acupuncture, herbal
medicine, Reiki, and others get you started!
