Contemporary Medical Acupuncture Program

Neurofunctional Treatment of Pain with Movement Disorders


I'd spent for 5 years studying TCM & Acupuncture before I joined this course. The whole experience was definitely very positive. I think it's not because I got more knowledge or techniques of acupuncture, it's about the course gave me more inspiration of how to treat the pain more effectively. Indeed, I found I really fixed the pain very quickly as well as more confident.

McMaster's Neurofunctional Acupuncture Program is a true blend of the foundation of acupuncture, incorporating science and optimizing the function of the human body. The extensive knowledge and skill taught in this program are second to none!

I can't recommend this course highly enough. It provides the most comprehensive acupuncture education available, incorporating all of the different techniques that other courses have "branded", in a neurofunctional approach to pain and dysfunction. It also provides acupuncture knowledge in the context of neurophysiology, practical clinical uses, general assessment and treatment at the elite level. It affords the student an extremely effective, evidence-based practical skill to enhance and complement a practitioner's current skill set.

I wish I could take this course every year. The expertise of the instructors and organization skills from the administration is what made this course so excellent. Not only did we learn how to perform acupuncture, but we gained an invaluable amount of knowledge about pain management and how to improve function in the human body.

This course gave me the necessary knowledge to expand my perspective about healing & soft tissue pathology. With this knowledge, I can now be a more precise therapist with a bigger bag to handle whatever comes through the door.

McMaster's acupuncture program provided a wonderful hands-on experience for learning the skill of acupuncture. The instructors were very knowledgeable and excellent at teaching their skills to the students. Medical Acupuncture is a tool that I am going to use with many of my clients as it adds an extra layer to care that you cannot get with other modalities.

The McMaster neurofunctional acupuncture course was transformative for my ability to assess and treat musculoskeletal injuries: not only by learning neurofunctional acupuncture techniques themselves but by learning how to perform a comprehensive assessment to look for areas of dysfunction that may not always be noticeable by the patient but contribute to our injuries nonetheless. Incorporating these interventions into my medical practice and seeing great results every day is very gratifying, both for myself and my patients!

I am a chiropractor currently practicing in Toronto and Orillia. I had the pleasure of taking the Contemporary Medical Acupuncture program in 2015. After completing the Contemporary Medical Acupuncture Program, my approach to clinical practice changed quite significantly. My clinical model shifted from a reductionist model to a more holistic model, striving to improve overall function and health. This clinical mindset has been the foundation for how I assess and manage patients. I have found the versatility and effectiveness of the Contemporary Medical Acupuncture model allow for countless management strategies and has become critical in my clinical practice. The team of instructors for the program is a dynamic group of professionals across many health care disciplines. They have done a wonderful job in teaching the science behind contemporary medical acupuncture as well as guiding the students with practical applications. While I also use a variety of techniques in my practice, I believe that acupuncture is one of the most powerful techniques we can use to help patients achieve optimal health of their neuromusculoskeletal systems. I highly recommend this course for any health care professional!

The McMaster acupuncture course has improved my ability as a manual therapist substantially. The course built upon and enhanced all of my knowledge and experience working with the human body, providing me with an exceptional framework for navigating physical dysfunction. Since implementing the neuro-functional approach to assessment and treatment, I have seen accelerated healing outcomes and outstanding results in my patients. Taking this program was one of the best choices I have ever made and elevated my ability to get people results with their health substantially.  Having used it for the past few months I cannot put it in words just how many I have not only introduced to the practice but changed their lives.  It is so direct and so efficient for achieving health goals. Highly recommended!
