Contemporary Medical Acupuncture Program

Neurofunctional Treatment of Pain with Movement Disorders


As a former acupuncture student and now a Registered Massage Therapist, I can genuinely say that the Neurofunctional Acupuncture Course at McMaster University has been life-changing. From the moment I began the course, I knew it was going to profoundly impact both my professional and personal life. The curriculum was incredibly comprehensive, blending theoretical knowledge with hands-on practical experience, which allowed me to develop a deep understanding of neurofunctional acupuncture. Since completing the course, I have seamlessly incorporated this amazing skill into my daily practice. The results have been nothing short of outstanding. My patients experience quicker and more effective relief from their conditions, whether it be chronic pain, muscle tension, or stress-related issues. The ability to target specific neurofunctional points has revolutionized the way I approach treatment, making my sessions more efficient and impactful. What truly sets the Neurofunctional Acupuncture Course apart is the quality of instruction and the support provided throughout the learning process. The instructors are not only experts in their field but also passionate about teaching and guiding students to success. Their dedication ensured that I left the program feeling confident and fully equipped to integrate neurofunctional acupuncture into my practice. I cannot recommend the Neurofunctional Acupuncture Course at McMaster University highly enough. It has been a game-changer for my career, enabling me to provide a higher level of care to my patients and see tangible improvements in their health and well-being. If you are considering advancing your skills and making a significant impact in your practice, this course is an absolute must.

I’ve been an RMT for 26 years and was looking for a modality to introduce into my practice that would enable me to be a more effective therapist, while easing the strain on my body. The McMaster Contemporary Acupuncture course was highly recommended to me by my RMT who took it about 10 years ago, and since finishing the course a month ago, I have highly recommended it to several RMT friends. I found the administrative staff to be friendly and always quick to help, and I found all instructors to be knowledgeable and helpful. I met lots of great peers, some of whom I've stayed in touch with and continue to bounce ideas off. It was overall a great experience and I wish I had done it 10 years ago!

Hands down one of the best courses that I have ever taken. Provided a new aspect in how I assess and treat my patients. Grateful for the opportunity to take this course.

In my opinion, the contemporary medical acupuncture program at McMaster is of the highest quality. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to add acupuncture to their repertoire. I took the course in the winter of 2023 and it was a great experience all around. The instructors were all great and very knowledgeable. I enjoyed the online lecture components before the hands-on weekends as they set the tone to learn how to needle. I am a chiropractic graduate from CMCC Class of 2023 and intend to make contemporary acupuncture an integral part of my practice style.

The contemporary medical acupuncture course has been one of the best courses I have taken so far and I’m so glad to have been a part of it. Learning many techniques for patient care using acupuncture and also for patient assessment has been very beneficial for my patients and has allowed me to further expand my tool base. This has allowed me to be able to treat conditions more effectively and seeing results quicker. I would recommend this course to any chiropractor or physiotherapist who are looking for effective treatments for their patients.
