I.C.A. - The international colleges of acupuncture organize various acupuncture courses for the degree and status of an acupuncturist. There are currently several countries actively participating in this training. In these countries, there is a local system of various types of education with lecturers who lead oral and frontal classes. Due to the worldwide coronavirus pandemic, this course will currently be taught online.
I.C.A. teaches students in Classical Chinese Medicine (CCM), based on ancient acupuncture books such as Nei Jing, Nan Jing, and Jia Yi Jing. I.C.A. has permission from W.F.A.S. (World Federation of Acupuncture and Moxibustion Societies) on the legalization and certification of its program. W.F.A.S. is the official body of the World Health Organization (WHO) for the legalization and certification of acupuncture education worldwide.
In Russia, the program applies only to doctors (MD) and other medical professionals. This group of healthcare professionals can also be divided into two groups. This course is designed as a modern acupuncture training, but can also function as a postgraduate course for already practicing acupuncturists (reflexologists) in Russia. The acupuncture course will last two and a half years and consist of 12 workshops. For postgraduate studies, the number of seminars will be the same.
This program will last for two and a half years. The lectures will be online and open to general practitioners, reflexologists, highly qualified nurses, and osteopaths. The first year will focus on the philosophy and physiology of acupuncture. The basis of this year is the book "Heavenly Trunks and Earthly Branches - Wu Yun Liu Qi - Philosophy and Physiology of Acupuncture." This book has been translated into Russian by us.
This will be followed by a year and a half of studying Western pathology, seen through the eyes of classical Chinese acupuncture. Western physiology will be "translated" into the terminology of Chi energy used in acupuncture. The Western pathology system will be "translated" into the great Qi disturbance systems. The principles of exposure, strategies of exposure and the function of acupuncture points will be considered. The book "Heavenly Treatment of Earthly Diseases - Causes and Development of Diseases, and the Principles and Strategies of Treatment" will be basic. This book has also been translated into Russian.
