Founded in 1989, the New Zealand School of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (NZSATCM) is the oldest educational institution focusing on acupuncture and Chinese medicine in New Zealand. The School is dedicated to providing quality education for you to gain the knowledge and skills to become a professional acupuncture practitioner. We are a small TCM education and training organisation. Small class sizes facilitate better teacher-student interaction. The library resources and online journals supplement teacher handouts. Seminars are organised on a regular basis to widen students’ exposure to alternative medicines. The opportunity to observe acupuncture clinics and treat patients prepares you to be work-ready. Students will also be equipped with the skills to operate an acupuncture clinic.
