Who can be a Five Element Acupuncturist?
Here’s what you don’t need:
- You don’t need an academic background. Our course is practical and modelled on an apprenticeship rather than a university degree. We only take on a maximum of 8 students at a time, so we can give personal guidance. You learn the practical skills you need, not how to write long essays about the history of acupuncture.
- You don’t need a background in science. We teach you all the anatomy you need to find the acupuncture points. Anyone who’s dedicated can learn this.
- You don’t need to know how to market yourself. Once you graduate, you will get the opportunity to be part of our practice and use the marketing system we’ve developed over the last 15 years.
But here’s what you do need:
- A real desire to help people.
- The right attitude. This means humility, self-awareness and the ability for self-reflection.
- The ability to take responsibility for your own learning. We are there to support you every step of the way, but we can’t do the growth and learning for you.
- Dedication to overcome challenges when they arise.
If you have these qualities, we can help you learn the rest. But without these qualities, no amount of teaching will get you there.
The rewards for those who do become a Five Element Acupuncturist are enormous. Learning to become an instrument of healing is a path of transformation and personal growth. You emerge from the training a different person. And you get to witness the transformation in your patients' lives, as a result of your dedication.
