Sports Medicine Acupuncture Certification (SMAC) program, was the best option I found for treating orthopedic and sports injuries that surpassed my expectations of continuing education.
I was pleased that the program placed a large emphasis on TCM in assessment and treatment of meridians, sinew channels, traditional acupuncture points even zang-fu diagnosis was discussed as it ties in with musculoskeletal injuries. This information has been integrated beautifully with western based anatomy and physiology. A true blend of TCM and Sports Medicine.
I especially enjoyed the in-depth training on classically-based needle techniques that has evolved into innovative treatment styles that fit today’s patient. I appreciated the allowance of time to practice all of the techniques and my questions were answered in a comfortable environment.
Since starting and now graduating from the SMAC program, I have found every treatment I apply is incorporating the diagnoses, assessments and treatments I have learned from this training. I have been able to build my practice, my patient load has tripled! I am treating injuries in regular patients, active people and also professional athletes which was my goal in coming into the program. I applaud this program! Thank you!
