COURSE DESCRIPTIONS

ACUMAG     101        Introduction to Acupressure and Magnetotherapy

Students gain a basic knowledge of these two fields of holistic medicine, beginning with acupressure theory, meridians, pressure points and the nature of the human energy field. Theories of magnetotherapy and the way magnetic poles affect different areas of health are reviewed, followed by an exploration of the way magnet therapy is applied to specific points on the body to work on specific health concerns. Magnetotherapy and acupressure points are compared and students learn how these two spheres of holistic medicine work together.

ACUMAG      201      Magnetotherapy Applications and Therapeutic Effects

Students learn the difference between the application of electro-magnets and the use of permanent magnets and explore the role of polarities and placement. Duration of therapeutic magnet application is reviewed as well as the use of magnetized water to supplement therapy. Magnetotherapy is studied as a way to help clients cope with pain and illness as well as a form of preventative medicine. Contraindications, precautions, client behavior and the proper care of magnets used in therapy are carefully reviewed.

ACUMAG      301        Acupressure Points and Techniques

Students learn acupressure points, examine the meridians in detail and explore the relationship between pressure points and health and disease. The benefits of each technique used to apply pressure to trigger points is discussed including finger pressure, energy rollers, acuballs, spine and foot rollers and the non-puncturing Teishin needle.

ACUMAG      401         Combined Acupressure and Magnetotherapy

Students learn effective means of using magnetic therapy in conjunction with acupressure and deepen their understanding of polarities, standard leads for applying magnetic energy, acupressure points, and the energetic flow of the body in health and illness. Students gain a comprehensive knowledge of each modality and learn to integrate these two therapies effectively.

ACUMAG      501          Advanced Acupressure and Magnetotherapy

Students receive final training in each modality to ensure complete understanding of theory and practice, and then examine case studies and practical examples in each discipline and the combined specialty. Students acquire the knowledge to practice magnetotherapy and acupressure separately as well as mastering the seamless integration of the two fields, and learn why some clients have special needs permitting the use of only one such practice.

ACUMAG      601         Acupressure and Magnetotherapy Practice

Students learn to incorporate the tools of the practitioner into an effective business model of empathy and success. Legal issues, client intake and communication skills, and models for promoting a practice through advertising and networking are reviewed. Equipment and office setting requirements are examined, and students learn how to choose instruments that best serve the needs of practitioner and client alike.
