The aim of this course is to be inclusive and, as such, it is hoped it will be of interest to the following range of practitioners:
Five Element Practitioners: It is our wish that this material will support, enhance, strengthen, and refresh your present knowledge. We hope that you will find that the Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) aspect of the course broadens your horizons and stimulates your enthusiasm to explore the essence of TCM, thereby providing mutual respect.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Practitioners: It is our wish that the Five Element (5E) aspects of this course will enhance your work and by sharing the very essence of 5E that your knowledge will be broadened and mutual respect will be achieved.
Western Acupuncture Practitioners: It is our wish that by enhancing your understanding of Five Element theory, your acupuncture knowledge will be strengthened. Since this course is also sprinkled with Traditional Chinese Medicine acupuncture theory, it is our aim that your skills will be further broadened. We hope that you enjoy both the Five Element and TCM styles of acupuncture that are introduced in this course and that you feel encouraged to include this holistic approach in your work.
On successful completion of this course, you will receve a certificate in Five Element Acupuncture Theory. It is understood by completing this program that, unless already fully qualified as a Five Element acupuncturist, you have been introduced to the theory of Five Element Acupuncture only and will not be able to claim to be a Five Element practitioner. As your own professional training consisted of your completing an extensive practical course, as indeed is the case for the practitioners who study Five Element Acupuncture. This course is intended as a first step, albeit a comprehensive one, on the journey.
