Decoding Acupuncture's Evidence

Date(s): 27 September 2018

Time: 10am - 5pm

Eligibility: All

Venue: College of Integrated Chinese Medicine, Reading

Everyday in clinic, we see exceptional results from our acupuncture treatments as our patients experience relief from a wide variety of long-standing issues. However, it can be challenging to explain what we do, how acupuncture works and what the clinical evidence is to our prospective patients and medical colleagues.  


In this 1 day seminar, Mel Hopper Koppelman will walk you through the acupuncture research landscape – highlighting landmark studies to have in your arsenal, explaining the criticisms of acupuncture’s evidence base and how to anticipate them and cogently respond, and demonstrating a new synthesis of emerging research that supports how acupuncture is able to achieve such amazing results in such a wide variety of conditions.


Mel Hopper Koppelman is passionate about improving people’s access to safe and effective health care by communicating acupuncture’s scientific evidence. She received her MSc in Acupuncture for the Northern College in York, UK in 2012 and her MSc in Nutrition and Functional Medicine from the University of Western States in Oregon, USA in 2015. She lives and practices in Rhode Island, USA and is the Director of Evidence Based Acupuncture.
