How will you know if learning Classical Five Element Acupuncture is for you?
It can be a bit daunting before starting a course. How will you know if you will like the subject? You may need to ask yourself some serious questions first!
- Do I want to do something I am passionate about?
- Do I have a genuine desire to help my fellow human being?
- Am I interested in how a human being works?
- Am I prepared to see fellow human beings as a whole and unique – body mind and spirit?
- Do I want to become expert in a system of medicine that is supremely effective and yet has not changed in the last 2000 years?
COFEA’s 3 year Lic. Ac course has been designed to create caring and skilled practitioners. Don’t be put off by thinking that you require any previous specialist training – we will teach you everything you need to know to become a professional acupuncturist.
Many people choose to study acupuncture after having treatment, or by knowing someone who has benefited from treatment. Some of you may be adding to existing skills such as reflexology or massage, or you may be contemplating a complete move away from your current job, or want to retrain.
At interview we will be looking for your commitment to the subject, your ability to study in Higher Education and your willingness to do what it takes to help people in this way.
