Japanese acupuncture is renowned for its ability to create positive clinical outcomes with minimal stimulation. Many acupuncturists who practice Meridian Therapy use little to no needle insertion. The AIMC Japanese Medicine Certification program offers an opportunity to study with masters from Japan who will teach several techniques using intricate, classic methods of Meridian Therapy. They will also demonstrate evidence-based scientific approaches such as trigger point treatment, which is based on autonomic nervous system theory. A gentle approach to moxibustion, also an important feature of traditional medicine in Japan, will be covered in this series as well.
Requirements: Completion of a minimum of 84 CE units from the Japanese Acupuncture certification workshops that are offered by AIMC Berkeley. There are a series of continuing education courses that can be applied to the certificate’s 84-unit requirement. Courses are typically offered each year and can be completed in any order.

"One of my favorite things about AIMC is the sense of community. We come together to support each other through challenges. Instead of a sense of competitiveness between students, there is a caring community that lifts everybody up. The faculty and staff are approachable and provide wonderful support during your graduate journey."- Master’s Student
