Japanese Medicine Certification
CEU Class: 84 CE Hours, CEP 436
Registration ongoing by class module. Participants must register for each class/module separately
AIMC Berkeley is proud to announce the creation of a Certificate in Japanese Medicine. This certificate will be awarded to any licensed acupuncturist or acupuncture student who completes a minimum of 84 Continuing Education units from the Japanese Acupuncture workshops offered at AIMC Berkeley.
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 at 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.
