Contemporary Medical Acupuncture for Health Professionals is a McMaster University-based continuing education program for selected health professionals interested in integrating Contemporary Medical Acupuncture into their practice.

Contemporary Medical Acupuncture is an effective and simple treatment approach based on current concepts of neurophysiology, neuroanatomy, and pathophysiology. Insertion of solid needles and the use of electrical stimulation are the foundation of this approach.

Acupuncture effects on humans include muscular relaxation, pain modulation, changes in autonomic activity (vasomotor tone, cardiac rhythm, peristalsis), diverse neuroendocrine and immune responses, general relaxation, and a feeling of psychophysical well being. Practically speaking, acupuncture can make you feel better!
