Top Acupuncture Schools in the US

Acupuncture addresses a broad variety of health problems for millions of individuals all around the globe, promotes healing and relieves pain. Acupuncture rebalances the stream of energy (Qi) in the body. Acupuncture affects human energy through manipulating the meridians of the body, linked with systems and internal organs.

Over time, the amount of acupuncture schools has grown due to acupuncture’s raising popularity. The schools, also called Traditional Oriental Medicine schools or Traditional Chinese Medicine schools, usually instruct the principles and Western medical areas that are associated.

The Council of Colleges of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine as well as the American Association of Oriental Medicine established ACAOM in 1982 as a non-profit organization. The U.S. Department of Education recognizes ACAOM as a “specialized and professional” accrediting agency.
