Reeves College Students Master Alternative Health Care Technique
Edmonton, AB - September 7, 2009 - As one of the main branches of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), acupuncture has been used to promote health and alleviate pain for over 2000 years. Today, those looking to start a career in this ancient health care practice are looking to Reeves College for training.
An increased use of acupuncture within Western health care systems requires that acupuncturists be well-trained and possess excellent analytical abilities and strong communication skills. The Acupuncture program at Reeves College ensures that graduates have the skill set employers, and patients, are looking for.
"Students who attend Reeves' Acupuncture program can be certified by the Alberta Acupuncturist Board with two years," says Soo Lee, Director of International Marketing for Reeves College. "They are taught by experienced and well-educated instructors and will gain hands-on experience in the school's own acupuncture clinic."
Acupuncture is widely used in pain management therapy at many clinics and hospitals. In fact, more and more General Practitioners recommend it as an effective relief for many medical conditions including acute and chronic pain, anxiety, bursitis, migraine and tension headaches, muscle spasms, palsy and sleep disorders. Acupuncture benefits can also be applied to stroke recovery and weight loss programs. As well, an increasing number of insurance companies include acupuncture treatments in their extended health benefits coverage.
