All of us here at Affordable Acupuncture are passionately dedicated to expanding our knowledge of health and healing so that we can continue to offer you the best care. Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is a requirement of the Chinese Medicine Board of Australia in order for us to maintain our national registration, but we all go well above and beyond the minimum requirement in our thirst for learning.
I'd like to just highlight the main programs of study for us this year (as we also constantly study a range of smaller programs that I won't discuss here):
Angie has completed “Advanced Training in Chinese Medicine Pediatrics”, a 70-hour course that was simply amazing and inspiring. Currently she is half-way through a 6-week course in “Pediatric Essentials” with a pediatric specialist (Robin Green) in the USA. She is loving learning new ways to treat children (especially her own!) and is looking forward to bringing her new skills and knowledge to the clinic in the future.
Genevieve is halfway through her Bachelor of Health Science in Nutrition, and is studying for exams as we speak! Gen's passion for nutrition and health perfectly complements her practice of Chinese Medicine and those of you who see her will no doubt have come away with helpful tips, hints and suggestions for making simple dietary changes to support your healing.
Kata completed an extensive four month study tour around the USA earlier this year, visiting a range of TCM clinics and undertaking numerous trainings. One of her main focus' was on completing her NADA training qualification, and she is busy planning future NADA trainings here in Australia, bringing this branch of acupuncture, used for detoxification, to many more people who really need it.
This field of health is constantly changing and evolving, we will be learning new things for the rest of our lives. It is part of what makes working in this field so exciting, challenging and rewarding. We look forward to helping you and continuing to improve our knowledge and skills for you.
