Traditional pulse and tongue diagnosis aid the graduate in formulating a comprehensive treatment plan. This is the style taught and practiced in China today at Universities of Chinese Medicine and their affiliated teaching hospitals.Acupuncture Program

ReportRating 1 out of 5 Protect yourself and stay away. Extremely unhealthy school. Abusive staff. Staff has no understanding of OM. Staff is incompetent All the students complained and cried to each other constantly everyday. The school does not listen or care about the students. Miserable place. Horrifying place. Never had to endure anything more sickening in my life. It’s embarrassing I attended. It’s not even a safe place. Harmful to your body, mind and spirit. Graduates have nothing good to say, zero. Nothing except horror stories. No idea how this place is still in existence. Waste of time and money. Avoid this school at all costs.

ReportRating 3 out of 5 I rate it average because of the convenience of scheduling. The scheduling of this school is convenient if you are working or have a family because classes are on Saturdays and Monday or Thursday nights. It is frustrating however that this school does not provide the lengthy and wordy power points that they present due to copyright issues. So if you cannot type fast, or do not do well studying on your own, beware of potentially feeling overwhelmed and frustrated. The Staff is colorful, most are passionate about teaching, and Kris LaPoint the director of Chicago campus is amazing and always is helpful.
