Chen Y. A Perspective of Acupuncture Education in the US JCMAH.MS.ID.555773

Citation: Chen Y. A Perspective of Acupuncture Education in the United States. J Complement Med Alt Healthcare. 2019; 9(5): 555773. DOI: 0.19080/JCMAH.2019.09.555773

A good and informative article.

Abstract
Acupuncture education in the United States has a history of almost 50 years. The entry-level professional training dates back to the 1980’s as a milestone establishment of Council of Colleges of Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine (CCAOM), Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine (ACAOM) and National Certification Commission for Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). Besides mainland China, America has the largest organized and influential acupuncture and Chinese Medicine education system in the world. Now 54 accredited acupuncture colleges have offered Master’s Programs, Professional Doctoral Programs, and Advanced Practical Doctorial (DAOM) Programs in comprehensive standards and competencies. Although there are some challenging issues, acupuncture education trends move forward into entry-level doctoral level training, regional and national accreditation, and system-based education, which will lead this profession to play a great role in the American integrative medical system.

From Facebook of Peter Deadman, I got a news-Giovanni Maciocia was gone today.

Peter said: I have just received the terribly sad news of the death of Giovanni Maciocia. I personally owe Giovanni an immense debt as he appeared miraculously as a teacher in my last year of college when I was on the point of giving up in frustration. His teaching was like water in the desert and he was one of the great inspirations in my subsequent career. I was proud that he later became a colleague and friend. I know Giovanni will be mourned by his many thousands of students and friends.

Giovanni Maciocia is one of the most highly respected practitioners of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine in Europe. Originally from a medical family in Italy, he trained in England at the International College of Oriental medicine graduating in acupuncture in 1974 after a three-year course. He has been in practice since then.

In 1980, 1982 and 1987 he attended three postgraduate courses in acupuncture in China at the Nanjing University of Traditional Chinese Medicine of the duration of three months each, gaining invaluable knowledge and clinical experience. He reads Chinese and has therefore access to all the Chinese medicine textbooks, old and modern, published in China.

Giovanni Maciocia is the author of “Tongue Diagnosis in Chinese Medicine”, “The Foundations of Chinese Medicine”, “The Practice of Chinese Medicine”, “Obstetrics and Gynaecology in Chinese Medicine” “Diagnosis in Chinese Medicine” and “The Channels of Acupuncture” which have become textbooks for all major acupuncture colleges in the world. Giovanni has recently finished writing a new book on emotional and mental problems which will be published in 2009 under the title “The Psyche in Chinese Medicine – Treatment of Emotional and Mental Disharmonies with Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs”.

Giovanni also studied Western herbalism and graduated from the National Institute of Medical Herbalists in 1977: he has been practising herbal medicine since then.

In 1996, Giovanni Maciocia was appointed Visiting Professor of the Nanjing University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, a foremost teaching institution in China.

Giovanni is the author of many articles published in professional journals and his article on M.E. (post-viral fatigue syndrome) has been published in a Chinese medical journal, an honour rarely bestowed on foreign writers in China. Giovanni has extensive experience in teaching having taught acupuncture and Chinese medicine since 1974 in several schools all over the world. He is well known for his rigorous and meticulous style combining a thorough knowledge of Chinese medicine with 28-years clinical experience. While firmly rooted in traditional Chinese medicine, Giovanni’s ideas are often innovative as the theories of Chinese medicine need to be adapted to Western conditions and new Western diseases. For example, Giovanni ha formulated an innovative and original new theory on the aetiology and pathology of asthma and allergic rhinitis. He also formulated a theory on the aetiology, pathology, diagnosis and treatment of M.E. (Post-Viral Fatigue Syndrome) entirely from scratch as this, being a new disease, did not exist in the Chinese literature.

Giovanni has been practising Tai Ji ChuanBa Gua and Xing Yi since 1975. He currently lives and works in Santa Barbara, California where he lectures.

From Dr Ted Kaptchuk’s foreword to Giovanni’s book Obstetrics and Gynaecology in Chinese Medicine:

Giovanni Maciocia is a respected guide in this transition period of East Asian medicine to the western arena. His accomplishments as a teacher and writer have made him a major force in this successful movement from one world to another. “Foundations of Chinese Medicine”, “Practice of Chinese Medicine” and “Tongue Diagnosis in Chinese Medicine” are all outstanding contributions of scholarship and clinical acumen, and this present volume “Obstetrics and Gynaecology in Chinese Medicine” significantly adds to his accomplishments. Indeed, one begins to see the outlines of a Maciocia transmission or tradition existing within our very own generation.

Giovanni’s Chinese name is Ma Wan Li (shown at the top of this page) which means “horse of ten-thousand miles”.

Nanjing University of Chinese Medicine

Giovanni was recently honoured by his inclusion in the brochure celebrating the 50th anniversary of the foundation of the Nanjing University of Chinese Medicine (where Giovanni attended three courses). Giovanni is described in this brochure as the “Father of Chinese Medicine in Europe”

Liu LG, Fan AY, Zhou H, Hu J. Acupuncture Anesthesia in Shanghai during 1960s JIM 2016

ABSTRACT
The success of acupuncture anesthesia (AA) for pneumonectomy in Shanghai in 1960 was a key event for AA gaining practical clinical application. The effort was a close collaboration between the Shanghai First Tuberculosis Hospital and the Shanghai Institute of Acupuncture and Moxibustion. One of the most important factors of AA success was the great financial and political support provided by the Chinese central government and Shanghai local government. In December 1965 the State Science and Technology Commission of China issued a formal document acknowledging AA as an important first-level national achievement of the integration of Chinese and Western medicine, and a collaborative effort of the whole scientific community in China. AA was an important influential factor that helped acupuncture spread across the world.
