Do any of these statements sound familiar?


“Choosing the right acupuncture points seems totally random to me.”

“I worry that I won’t be a successful acupuncturist once I’ve graduated.”

“I’m concerned about my clinical internship…I just don’t think I am ready.

Needling is scary to me…I’m told I never go deep enough but I’m afraid I might hurt someone.”

“Creating a TCM diagnosis is so difficult, I always seem to struggle with this.”

“Names for anatomy seem similar but TCM organs have completely different functions, it gets confusing.”

“The language used in TCM is not what I’m used to…I’m a science person and it makes no sense.” 

If you feel any of the pressures outlined above  – can help.
