5 Great Reasons to Study Acupuncture

If you’re thinking of changing careers and have considered studying acupuncture in the past, then now is the perfect time to embark on a new path and become a qualified acupuncturist in the UK. Choosing to study acupuncture has a whole host of benefits, both professionally and personally.

Here at HAC, we have compiled a list of five great reasons to study acupuncture:

A job designed for the future

With the current economic situation and increasing advancements in technology, many job positions are under threat like never before. However, there will always be a demand for help from others, and the value of one on one treatment from a good, fully trained therapist who has studied in acupuncture will never be underestimated or devalued and will undoubtedly continue to develop with time.


Another thing that is becoming more obvious all the time, is the need to look after ourselves and our well-being. In doing this, it becomes easier to help those around us, both in our immediate circle and in our local community.

Choosing to study acupuncture is a great way to learn more about this and learn how to understand and develop yourself better than ever before. If you personally suffer with any illness or ailments, you will find that you can help yourself much more than you ever thought possible, before beginning to help others.

Offer a great alternative to traditional medicine

In the U.K, we are extremely fortunate to have access to the NHS. However, it is known that it is under increasing pressure, and sadly it cannot always offer everything that we need. It is also somewhat cumbersome and slow to adapt to new ideas, technology and discoveries.

Acupuncture is a great alternative to traditional medicine and what the NHS has to offer, so by choosing to study acupuncture, and being able to offer it as a treatment will be a huge weight off the NHS’s shoulders and offer a new solution to patients and their ailments.

A new experience, a new way of thinking and an expansion of horizons

Most people who have chosen to study acupuncture have found themselves in a world of new discoveries, new ideas, new people and a very different understanding of life. This can be on a few levels, and of course it’s a different and unique experience for everyone. It has also helped those who may be struggling with religion, belief, life and help them find a philosophical view that they can start to feel comfortable with.

Low cost

Choosing to study on a short-term acupuncture course does not have to cost you an arm and a leg. The Healing & Acupuncture College offers a comprehensive, one-year course in acupuncture for under just £6000. We offer a flexible and thorough course, ensuring that your learning and development is unharmed by illness or travel issues.
