what is master acupuncture?
master acupuncture embraces both the symptomatic acupuncture of traditional chinese medicine (tcm) and the holistic acupuncture of oriental medicine (om).
the art of master acupuncture
art is a creative activity and the art of master acupuncture relies on the creative skills and abilities of the acupuncturist: the ability to create a five element pattern from the 4 methods of diagnosis, with special emphasis on pulse diagnosis; the ability to create a balancing prescription of acupuncture points for relief of symptoms and promotion of health & harmony; the skill in locating acupuncture points; the skill involved in needle technique.
the science of master acupuncture
science is a created activity and the science of master acupuncture relies on the medical models employed by the acupuncturist: from the tcm models known as 'the eight conditions' and 'the differentation of syndromes' to the om models known as 'the five elements' and 'celestial stems & branches', these medical models underpin master acupuncture practice.
the scope of master acupuncture
all medical conditions can benefit from master acupuncture, either as the primary medical intervention or as a secondary medical intervention. western medical conditions are translated into oriental medical conditions in order for treatment to be effectively applied.
