This Certificate Course at TSCA will transform participants into the next generation of leaders in Cosmetic Acupuncture with 100 hours* of didactic and clinical study to include:
Hands-on practice and supervised clinical rotations (treating the public)
techniques for treating the face
Assessment of patients through multiple filters
Eastern and Western techniques to improve appearance and health
Dermatology from a Chinese Medical and Biomedical perspective
Neurophysiology of facial nerves, vessels, and dermatomes
Complementary modalities like LED, microcurrent, gua sha, and cupping
Practice management skills with a focus on how to build a thriving business
And so much more!
The focus of this course is to provide a comprehensive understanding of theory, diagnosis, and treatment of facial cosmetic acupuncture. Graduates of this course will be well prepared to successfully integrate these skills into their existing or new practice.
This course brings together some of the leaders in cosmetic and facial acupuncture (all three are graduates of TSCA!) to showcase the diversity of styles within this growing field. In addition to training in a core style of Cosmetic Acupuncture as offered by Shellie Goldstein, L.Ac., participants will be introduced to clinical skills and strategies developed and mastered by internationally-renowned guest lecturers, Mary Elizabeth Wakefield, L.Ac. and Virginia Doran, L.Ac.. Plus, there will be a 1-day mini workshop in Zero Balancing, a subtle but powerful bodywork technique to easily integrate facial concerns with structural imbalances.
