Students gain valuable hands-on experience in our on-site teaching. We offer TCM diagnosis and treatments to members of the public. In this clinic, treatments are provided by students under the guidance of a supervision Acupuncturist or Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner. The role of the supervisor is to facilitate the students' learning and to ensure that patients receive appropriate diagnosis and treatment. These student clinics are of two types: focused on herbal prescriptions or manual therapy which includes acupuncture.
Prior to providing the treatment, students will first ask you to complete a health history form. In the health history, it will ask about your personal information, health history. After, the group of students will conduct diagnosis. This may take approximately 15 minutes depending on the session and the amount of questions. This will ensure that the treatment is tailored to meet your personal needs. Your student practitioner will then obtain your informed consent before providing you with treatment, which means discussing the proposed treatment plan with you and coming to a mutual agreement as to what it will entail. If you are unclear about any of the information, we encourage you to ask. We want you to gain the maximum benefit from your massage, and to feel relaxed and comfortable in the clinical environment.
