What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a core element of Chinese Medicine. It is based on the understanding that there is an energy flow in living organisms which, if blocked, results in diseases. The Acupuncturist resolves this energy flow by placing needles in Acupuncture points.

Acupuncture and Naturopathy

The energy flow (“qi”) is produced by the food one eats and the better the diet, the more “qi” (energy) a person has. In other words: if one lives in a toxic environment, eats poorly and does little exercise, the Acupuncturist has less “qi” (energy) to work with.

CNM students are taught to consider TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) as a philosophy and to educate clients in developing healthier, more sustainable lifestyles. Naturopathic Acupuncturists stimulate the body’s innate capability to balance health.

CNM’s unique Naturopathic Acupuncture course combines current Chinese Principles (Acupuncture) with a focus on detoxification, exercise and eating the right foods. Our graduates are fully qualified Acupuncturists with an additional Naturopathic approach to health, whose aim is not only to promote symptomatic relief, but a feeling of true wellness and vitality.
