Graduate Program in Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine

Discover the Art & Spirit of Healing

What if you could learn about someone’s health by feeling his pulse? If you could improve chronic conditions or help someone conceive a child? What would those skills mean to the mind, body, and spirit of your patients? What would they mean to you?

Chinese medicine unites the parts with the whole, linking the health of organ systems to the health of the individual and linking the individual to the surrounding world. This truly integrative medicine draws both patients and practitioners from diverse backgrounds together under the common goal of healing.
