Why is it mandatory to study ACU1 before joining this course?

ACU1 is a prerequisite for enrolling in the Tui Na course due to its fundamental importance in understanding the principles underlying Tui Na therapy. Tui Na treatment is intricately connected to the meridian system, and knowledge of acupuncture points is essential for its effective application. By studying ACU1, students gain a comprehensive understanding of the meridian system and acupoints, which form the basis of Tui Na techniques.

Additionally, Tui Na therapy often incorporates various complementary therapies such as cupping, moxibustion, ear acupuncture, and scalp acupuncture. These therapies work synergistically with Tui Na to enhance its therapeutic effects. Therefore, familiarity with these complementary modalities, which are covered in ACU1, is crucial for mastering Tui Na therapy effectively.
