I would like to invite you to join us on our Five Element Acupuncture Diploma course. This course provides you with the opportunity to take an exciting new direction in life.

You can make a difference to your own health and wellbeing and also learn how to profoundly empower your future patients.

This is a great opportunity for a change of career or to add a skill to an existing practice. Acupuncturists can earn a very good living from doing something that is both rewarding and a lifelong career.

With two campuses, you can join our next cohort nr Truro, Cornwall or at Brize Norton in Oxfordshire.

The course is accredited by The Acupuncture Society and also by The Complementary Medical Association (CMA). So, on completion, you will be able to join both the Acupuncture Society and the CMA to gain support from a diverse group of fellow practitioners within the world of holistic professionals.

Derived from the classical concept of “Wu Xing”, this system of medicine stretches back to the second century BCE, exploring the Five Elements of Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water. The theory of “Wu Xing” provides a link between the macrocosmic energy of the universe and the microcosmic energy of our Body/Mind/Spirit.

We’ve designed this course to stimulate your intellect, utilise your current transferable skills, teach you new practical diagnostic proficiencies, and to enjoy that journey with enthusiastic and passionate tutors.
