The Acupuncture Strand

The Acupuncture strand deals more with the practical aspects of this branch of New York College of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It begins with a three-course series on Meridians and Point Location, moves on to Needle Technique, and culminates in Acupuncture Case Analysis, which is the more practical counterpart to Clinical Acupuncture Practice.
