How to Become a Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner

Traditional Chinese medicine has been practiced for over 2,000 years. The ancient healing methods used to treat patients include acupuncture, moxibustion, herbal medicine, acupressure, and attention to

All Chinese traditional medicine is based on chi, or life force. The ultimate goal for the practitioner and the patient is to regulate internal balance and harmony through the patient's energy channels.

The Mission

A traditional Chinese medicine educational program may offer academic and clinical training and ethics to enter into the traditional Chinese medicine arena. Students are challenged with providing the public with quality, affordable clinical care.

The goal of traditional Chinese medicine is not to be the only choice for healing. It is to promote and integrate Asian medicine with other systems of healing, including traditional medicine.

When students embark on the study of traditional Chinese medicine, they soon realize that the difference between this ancient Asian healing program and a traditional medical program is that the focus is on consciousness, and how it may influence the approach that is taken toward healing. It focuses on more than just treating patients. The idea is to heal ourselves, our community, and the world.

Selecting a Specialty

Students may select a specific program of study. For example, a master's degree in acupuncture and oriental medicine is one option. They may learn all about human energy systems, diagnosis, problem solving, and treatment techniques. Students learn to seamlessly fuse Eastern medicine with Western medicine.

Master's Program

Most programs of traditional Chinese medicine are master's degree programs.

Typical courses may cover:

  • Theoretical constructs of Oriental medicine
  • Meridian system basics
  • Point location
  • Herbs used in Chinese pharmacopeia
  • Western medicine and science
