Acupressure

About the Level 4 Acupressure Certificate

Acupressure is an alternative therapy which has derived from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). This therapy is similar to acupuncture in the way that both therapies involve a practitioner applying pressure to certain points on the body. However unlike acupuncture, acupressure does not involve any needles.

This kind of therapy is often used to treat circulation, muscular pain an also decrease tension. During this course, our students will learn the ways in which acupressure can help patients, by studying modules in pressure points, the meridian system and the body as a whole. They will also examine how medicine differs in the east and the west.

Who should study this course?

This course is aimed at anyone who has an interest in alternative medicine, in particular, thos who want to learn acupressure. Whether students plan to practice the techniques on themselves, or use them in the work place, this course will help them to achieve their goals.

You do not need any prior qualifications of experience if you want to enrol on this distance learning acupressure course. All you need is an interest in learning more about acupressure, and the motivation to engage with our home study course materials.

What happens after the course?

On successful completion of this home study qualification with Stonebridge College, students will have a fundamental understanding of how acupressure works. They may even feel ready to start using it to benefit their own health, or the health of others.

If students work in complementary therapies already, this course may add another string to their bow. If they’re not, they could use this course as a starting point for a new career. Some students may even want to progress their studies and undertake qualification in TCM or acupuncture. Careers related to this course include:
