What Courses Are Offered at Acupuncture School?

List: Posted: 08/10/11

Many people think that acupuncture is such a specialized skill that there is not much diversity in coursework at acupuncture schools.  However, when attending one of these schools of alternative medicine, a wide variety of courses and specialties are offered to further your education.

You will actually be receiving career training, instead of a broad education, at an alternative medicine school.  When taking courses at acupuncture schools, the classes offered teach more about Eastern and alternative medicine.  There will also be a variety of classes that teach the needling techniques for specialized acupuncture. 


Anatomy, Biology and Physiology are also available for general knowledge of medicine.  Many acupuncture schools also offer such courses as Herbal Medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Chinese Medical Terminology, Moxibustion, Tai Chi, and Cupping.  For further acupuncture study, you may be able to take advanced courses, such as as Five-Element Acupuncture.


Acupuncture schools are not just limited to the practice of needling specifically.  Since the practice is often combined with other types of Eastern medicine, these acupuncture schools will offer a variety of courses to help you get a well rounded career training.
