On Wednesday August 31st 2016 from 11:00am to 1:00pm, we will be having our new ACATCM student's orientation.
We are excited to share our news with you!

We will be offering the following programs to our students:

The graduation banquet for the Class of 2016 was held at the Elbow Springs Golf Club this past Saturday, June 25.
The graduates came dressed in their finest and friends and family were present to celebrate this joyous occasion. After a delicious dinner, guests were treated to heartfelt speeches by the faculty, honoured guests including CAAA President Lowell Ask, and graduating students.
The Alberta College of Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine is conducting our very own study on Bell's Palsy. Patients may check the information below. Interested participants should contact us at 587-333-2368 for screening.
"The Korean scientists studying oriental medicine with biophysical methods injected a special staining dye which coloured the meridians. By injecting the dye onto acupuncture points, they were able to see thin lines. These did not show up at non-acupuncture point sites where there are no meridians. The researchers discovered that the meridian lines are not confined to the skin, but are in fact a concrete duct system through which liquid flows, and that this liquid aggregates to form stem cells.“
This past weekend, the annual general meeting for the College and Association of Acupuncturists of Alberta was held in Red Deer, where members had the very important task of electing a new council. There was a great turn out with impressive speeches by all candidates.
"Traditional Acupuncture is a whole mode of medicine, it can be applied to any illness or condition, in the young or the elderly."
