Hello from Houston

by Sep 23, 2016

This week, I took advantage of not having any classes on Friday and I flew to Houston to attend a seminar in M.E.D. (a combination between TBM, B.E.S.T. and Matrix Energetics).

Having my own practice in the future means being able to integrate all my knowledge and my trainings. I don’t see myself using only acupuncture. This would mean only to limit the things that I could do for my clients thus limiting the help that they can get from me. Even here, at NUHS clinic, I love that I can go and get acupuncture and I can always combine it with hydrotherapy from the ND side. The more help I can get, the better I’ll feel!

If you’re like me and you’d like to expand your knowledge but don’t have the time or the money to travel, you can always check Continuing Education on the NUHS website.


There’s actually a Cosmetic Acupuncture training happening on October 1st. I took this training last February and it was worth the money. First of all, you don’t learn it anywhere else in your classes. You do get some info in Microsystems but the time is so limited that you have to go home and study the material you get in class by yourself.

I personally liked the practical approach and that I got to needle the whole day of the training. It was fun, and at the end of the day I was able to needle quite fast and easy any point on the face (even the ones you might be too scared to needle in CNT class).

If you’re interested in receiving cosmetic acupuncture treatments in our clinic, ask for it! There are a couple of students who took the training and I’m sure they’ll be happy to use their knowledge.

Latin Medical Club at Club Lunch Day

If you feel that treatments in the clinic are not enough and you need a different kind of support, there are plenty of clubs that you can join. Last Tuesday, I attended Club Day and I was happy to see so many new clubs. The newest and most colorful was the Latin Medical Club. Well done, Douglas and the team!

Our own club, Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Student Association (AOMSA), meets on Mondays at noon in the Library, room 118. Any student is welcome to join our meetings!


I wish you good luck with any quizzes you might have this week, and I’ll say goodbye with a view from my Houston hotel room.
