Our guide to acupuncture training courses

Acupuncture is a type of treatment that hails from China and uses needles in certain areas of the body as a way of relieving pain and treating health problems. Some newer acupuncture courses don’t involve needles though and will teach you how to do this with a type of massage called acupressure.
