Dear Friend,




Acupressure is a style of shiatsu ( From the Japanese " Shi" means finger and "atsu" means pressure) providing a system for balancing the body's energy or "oi" on a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level. Gentle yet firm pressure is applied to specific accupoints using hand, elbow, knee and barefoot techniques. Traditional Japanese shiatsu and classical acupuncture theory are the foundation for assessment skills and treatment planning. Acupressure shiatsu is recognized as Asian Bodywork Therapy by the national organizations: the American Organization for Bodywork therapies of Asia and the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and oriental Medicine.




NATIONAL CERTIFICATION




The 730 hour program fulfills the educational standards set by the national professional associations: the American Organizations for Bodywork therapies of Asia(AOBTA) and the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and oriental Medicine. Asian Bodywork Therapy is recognized as integral part of traditional Chinese medicine with acupuncture and Chinese herbs.






  • Graduates of the Acupressure Therapy Institute will be eligible to become certified Asian Bodywork therapists by AOBTA.


  • Graduates also qualify to take the Asian Bodywork Therapy exam given by the NCCAOM. Those that pass the NCCAOM exam are certified as Diplomate of Asian Bodywork Therapy.








CERTIFICATION AT THE ACUPRESUURE THERAPY INSTITUTE

I wish you all the best and good luck for your future.

Hello Suresh,

Acupressure is a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine. To gain profound knowledge about the field, one should look at taking up a one year certificate course in the same.

Presently, there are two Nationally accredited and highly popular institutes offering Acupressure training in India, they are: The American Organization for Bodywork Therapies of Asia (AOBTA) and the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). 

The two types of Acupressure programs are Certificate Course and Associate Degree. 

The benefit of doing the course from accrediting centres is that one can take up state licensing examinations after completing it. India doesn't has a Acupressure Practitioner License yet, but can obtain a license in similar field as Nursing etc. and pursue the occupation further.
