Re: TCM - Acupuncture schools
- Like Sharon said, I think TCM is important to learn and is probably the
only form of the medicine that could be standardized like it has been.
It is a good place to start and perhaps a good way for NCCAOM to make
tests that determine a minimal level of competency. But I want to learn
more about moving Qi, about finding the points the way the ancients did
not by just anatomical location. I want to be a conduit of a living and
vital medicine, not someone that just sticks needles in patients based
on a cookbook style protocol. Christopher Vedeler L.Ac., C.Ht.

MM: hello, i am in wisconsin and i want to study acupuncture and oriental medicine. recently, some people have written me privately and told me about the different standards for training. i am interested in going to the best schools possible. is it true that california standards are the highest? also, are there any schools in the midwest where i could be educated with these higher standards? i would like to learn more on this issue. i guess im looking at going down to chicago now.
