BMAS acupuncture courses

Statistics from

THE BRITISH MEDICAL ACUPUNCTURE SOCIETY runs foundation, post-foundation and supplementary courses for regulated healthcare professionals.

FOUNDATION COURSES last four days, spread either over two weekends or over a working week. Whilst the historical aspects and traditional philosophy of acupuncture are discussed, the Foundation Course concentrates on a neurophysiological and evidence-based approach to the use of acupuncture as a technique following orthodox clinical diagnosis. Safe and effective needling are key features of this practical course, and the healthcare professionals attending should leave with the skills required to apply simple acupuncture techniques within their practice.
