Acupuncture with the New England School of Acupuncture

“Our program is distinguished by its concentration in Japanese Acupuncture Styles (JAS), including Shakuju Therapy, an approach based on non-insertive needling technique. JAS relies on exquisite sensitivity in palpatory techniques, taught by pre-eminent senior faculty from Japan and the United States. Programs are academically rigorous, with a strong core of small-group, hands-on practice of our craft.”
“Chinese Herbal Medicine (CHM) is also distinctive at NESA. Taught by expert herbalists trained in China and the United States. CHM relies on a clinical tradition honed from generations of practitioners. The study of CHM is the task of a lifetime, to manage safe and effective use of traditional Chinese herbs for modern patients.”
