Our new 24-Day Course in TCM Pain Management combines a complete understanding of Traditional Chinese Medicine theory and Chinese medicine treatment modalities, with up-to-date Western scientific understanding of pain, what it is and how to understand it.
We have worked to create a syllabus the offers a more complete and holistic understanding of pain, and the ways in which it can be managed and treated using Traditional Chinese medicine.
The course is suitable for students with no previous background in Chinese medicine as well as practitioners of Acupuncture, Tuina or Chinese herbal medicine. It is also highly suitable for other healthcare professionals such as Osteopaths, Physiotherapists, Nurses and GPs who may wish to broaden their ability to understand and treat pain in a more effective way.
Clinical placements are undertaken at Asante Academy of Chinese Medicine and within our NHS hospital pain management clinics. If required, additional clinical placement days can be arranged at a cost of £130 per day.
All teaching takes place at Asante Academy of Chinese Medicine. We do offer online teaching via Zoom for those students who may have difficulty attending in person, however, all practical and clinical aspects of the course must be completed at Asante Academy to finish the course.
Theory covers the following topics in the form of lectures and seminars. The final day consists of a brief course review followed by written and practical examinations.
