This course was excellent! There was a lot of both theory and a hands-on practical component. We had a wide range of instructors available to us, all with superior knowledge and willingness to be there to help at all times. I left the course feeling extremely confident that I had the skills needed to help my clients and the acupuncture is a perfect compliment to massage therapy and cupping services that I offer as well. I have done further studies in facial acupuncture. I have a well-rounded skills base largely in part to the medical acupuncture program at McMaster! Thank you!
The McMaster acupuncture course was an excellent way to refresh anatomy knowledge, as well as add a great modality to treating MSK conditions that may not respond to traditional chiropractic care.
The Neurofunctional Operating system which this course is based upon has changed the way I assess and treat my clients in practice. It has helped me gain a better understanding of pain and dysfunction, giving me a new approach to treating injuries. I found it very helpful to have many hours of hands-on practice with a variety of needling techniques and learning relevant blueprint treatments.
The Contemporary Medical Acupuncture program helped me to further fine-tune my understanding of the nervous system pathways and their important role in treatment and rehabilitation settings. The course with it's practical and in-class portions was key to a full understanding of acupuncture and ensured that we as students got to experience and see the full effects.
Dr. Elorriaga's course was certainly a game changer in my career. I will forever be indebted to him and his amazing faculty for the profound clinical pearls, insight and comprehensive approach to patient care. This course is essential for any and ALL medical professionals invested in providing the best delivery of care!
This course fundamentally changed my diagnostic approach.
Great course! With a wealth of knowledge. It truly exceeded my expectations.
A world-class course that provides health professionals the confidence and certainty to provide high-quality care for their patients and clients.
Completely changed the way I see and treat my patients. I took both the Contemporary Acupuncture and Advanced acupuncture course together and I would highly recommend both of these course to anyone.
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!
