Contemporary Medical Acupuncture Program

Neurofunctional Treatment of Pain and Dysfunction


The McMaster Contemporary Medical Acupuncture Program is simply great! Dr. Elorriaga's approach to needling makes sense from a neuroanatomical and functional perspective.  Clinical sessions and anatomy labs were extremely valuable in enhancing the principles of theoretical classes and developing skills for precise needling techniques.  Also, all instructors at McMaster University are leading experts in this field! I am strongly recommending this course to any manual medicine practitioner!

Truly one of the best acupuncture courses filled with extensive knowledge and clinical pearls. This course motivates you to really understand your anatomy and think critically when it comes to treating your patients. Highly recommended!

The course deepened my knowledge and experience of acupuncture and helped me to enhance my practice by introducing me to the use of electro-acupuncture, a valuable technique that enhances the benefits of treatment.

I had taken the McMaster Contemporary Acupuncture Program one year ago and it has completely changed my practice. The program does a fantastic job of teaching core concepts all medical professionals should make time to develop. Everything from what true evidence-based medicine looks like to how to develop one’s individual lens to assess the world through. In conjunction with those skill sets, the teachers deliver clear and safe instruction to develop your acupuncture needling to a high skill level. This program has connected everything that was touched on in massage therapy school and added much more to the overall framework. This was truly an eye-opening experience for me which I am very grateful for.

After receiving my contemporary medical acupuncture certification, I feel that my assessment skills are much more practical and that I now have an effective method for treating the nervous system.

McMaster's Contemporary Medical Acupuncture was career changing. Shifting focus from the MSK system as the primary, to a whole body approach, specifically the nervous system. Great success and clients are very pleased with the results. Definitely, recommend this course!
