"I wanted to become an acupuncturist because I had experienced its amazing benefits.

Deciding to take on this journey was like one of those moments when your perceptual intuition is so clear that you genuinely know what you need to do deep inside you. Thus I granted that calling and never looked back since then.

The staff and teachers at CICM are super helpful and friendly. Every student has a personal tutor and they are a great help whenever you need that extra support throughout your studies. It’s a very supportive and caring environment and everyone genuinely wants you to flourish and when I started it felt like I had found the right place to transpire and grow. You meet people at CICM from different walks of life and they all have an exciting story to tell.

The course has exceeded my expectations. Studying acupuncture and Chinese Medicine is not just another university course. It’s the wisdom and a lifestyle that has been around for thousands of years. It has helped me to grow massively in my personal and professional life and I’m living and applying its profound wisdom in my daily life which is a helping me to be a better person. Six months before joining CICM I was crossing the North Atlantic Ocean on a classic sailing yacht but studying acupuncture at CICM was one of the best decisions in my life."
