Bachelor of Health Science (Acupuncture)
What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a branch of Chinese medicine that stimulates special points on the body in order to regulate the flow of Qi (vital force) to balance the functions of the body, mind and spirit and restore health. Traditional Chinese Medicine, practiced alongside Acupuncture, uses Chinese herbs and traditional medicines to stimulate and strengthen healing mechanisms and restore balance.
Using Chinese medical theory of yin and yang, excess and deficiency, external and internal pathogenic factors and biomedical concepts, acupuncturists develop a medical hypothesis (diagnosis) regarding the specific pathology at work and its underlying cause. Based on the diagnosis, acupuncture points are then chosen to correct the pathology and they are stimulated with fine needles, heat, gentle electrical simulation, laser, suction or physical pressure, depending on the needs of the patient.
