Medical Acupuncture Training for Physicians

What is Integrated Structural Acupuncture?

Integrated Structural Acupuncture is a system of acupuncture that uses a point verification system, thus allowing the practitioner to verify the efficacy of their point selection, ensuring the optimal diagnosis and treatment. This system is effective for musculoskeletal, neurological and internal medical conditions. Treatment points are verified to demonstrate their immediate effect on patient symptoms and exam findings. In this way, both practitioner and patient actively participate in the healing process. The system also integrates modalities, such as nutrition, exercise and manual therapies, to ensure the most comprehensive treatment and best results for the patient.
