York University’s Integrative Acupuncture: Professional Practice Certificate program balances Eastern and Western medicine through an integrated approach to acupuncture. Most “integrated” acupuncture programs teach Eastern and Western acupuncture side by side without demonstrating how to incorporate the skills and knowledge from both approaches into practice. This one-of-a-kind program teaches how to treat pain and neurological dysfunction informed by a neuro-anatomical understanding of the body while adhering to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) theories to provide patient-centered care.

Students will learn to elevate their practice with intensive training in three core skill sets trigger point and motor points needling, peripheral nerve palpation and electro-modulation, and central nervous system stimulation. Learners will receive hands-on clinical skills practicum through supervised group practices.

What You’ll Learn
• Refine muscle, tendon, trigger point, and neuro-palpation skills.
• Hone advanced needling skills: elicit local twitch response, de-irritate cutaneous nerves, de-inhibit motor nerve trunks, and predict, and confirm the correct DeQi sensation for individual acupoints.
• Communicate the inter-relationship between the channel system and the neurovascular system.
• Explain the cause-and-effect between trigger points, nerve entrapment, and channel pathways.
• Learn to design patient-centered prescriptions using the S.M.A.R.T guidelines to address sensory, motor, autonomic, radicular, and trigger points.
• Obtain consistent clinical results using our protocols for orthopedic and neurological conditions.

Along with Highly skilled Film Making, and editing Software and equipment. And the one of the most thing which I personally like the most was a designation of a group peers and Coach referred and appointed to us throughout our Bachelors degree Programme at York. Which help us in Academic Achievement in Film and Photography related courses throughout our degree period.

Instructors are great for the most part and the community here is supportive. Being a university, you will get a good grounding in theory but also practical work opportunities. The 3rd and 4th year workshops are a must for honing your skills and making connections. This is where you get to get hands on and practice the things that will make your own projects stand out. Put 100% into these is my advice and opportunities will come.
