Members of the community who take advantage of this special are in good hands
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 21, 2011
On October 3, 2011, the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine (ACTCM) will begin its autumn special. During weekday morning hours between the hours of 8:30 am and 12:30 pm, new and returning acupuncture clinic patients who mention the phrase “Autumn Special” when making an appointment will get their treatment for only $30. The fall promotion is subject to appointment availability and ends on December 16, 2011.
“Members of the community who take advantage of this special are in good hands,” said Alissa Cohan, ACTCM’s Director of Communications. “Our clinical faculty is comprised of extensively-trained practitioners who have been selected for their expertise, areas of specialty, experience working in integrative medicine, and thorough knowledge of today’s health conditions.”
ACTCM clinical interns are in the final phase of a rigorous four-year program taught by experts in Traditional Chinese Medicine healing techniques. Interns treat patients under the direct supervision of clinical faculty who are California licensed acupuncturists. The Community Clinic features its own full-service herbal dispensary that carries an extensive selection of high-quality raw herbs, powdered herbs and herbal pills.
In addition to ACTCM’s on-site clinic, the college also maintains numerous partnerships with local hospitals and community-based clinics in San Francisco. Each Community Acupuncture Project (CAP) site is staffed by ACTCM clinical faculty and interns working in collaboration with other medical providers. These partnerships offer high-quality patient care and education, while also providing ACTCM interns with the opportunity to do clinical rotations in diverse settings.
On average, over 135 students treat more than 350 patients in the Community Clinic each week. Over 20,000 patient treatments are provided annually in the Community Clinic and off-site Community Acupuncture Project (CAP) sites.
ACTCM’s Community Clinic is proud to have been honored for the quality of their patient care and named “Best of the Bay” by both the San Francisco Bay Guardian and the San Francisco Weekly newspapers.
About the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine
The American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine (ACTCM) has been at the forefront of educating students in Traditional Chinese Medicine in the Bay Area since its inception in 1980. Their two degree programs—the Master of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine (MSTCM) and the Doctorate of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (DAOM)—provide an exceptional professional education.
ACTCM’s community clinics serve as a diverse and demanding training ground for their students, while providing affordable health care services to the community. ACTCM’s certificate programs in Tui Na and Shiatsu and its introductory classes for the public offer additional educational opportunities for current ACTCM students, healthcare professionals and the general public.
Bay Area acupuncture treatment, as taught by ACTCM, restores balance and health, and is used for everything from chronic pain to drug dependence. It is also effective for allergy relief, weight loss, pain management and [fertility treatment.
During treatment practitioners insert sterile, disposable needles at acupuncture points along the meridians. Because of the thin and pliable needles used, most people feel little to no discomfort. Patients typically leave feeling energized or relaxed with a deep sense of well-being.
