Acupuncture, Massage and Holistic Nursing programs available at our school in New York
Acupuncture is the practice of inserting very fine needles into strategically selected acupoints, specific points on the body that correlate to various meridians and organs, to free and aid one's "qi", or energy. This ancient method of healing originated in China over 3,500 years ago and aims to treat the whole person rather than just the symptoms of disease.
Massage is an ancient practice that combines the healing power of touch with the anatomical knowledge of the body. Asian Bodywork is a term that encompasses many massage modalities including Tui Na, Shiatsu, and Thai Massage, many of which also incorporate acupoints.
The purpose of the Bachelor of Science Holistic Nursing Completion Program for Registered Nurses is to provide the philosophical, professional, educational, and clinical groundwork necessary for nurses of the future.
