SCIENTIFIC
INTEGRATIVE
MEDICINE

The purpose of our scientific integrative medicine (SIM) course is to expand your knowledge of using integrative medicine techniques related to acupuncture, laser acupuncture, myofascial release, manual therapy (massage), and botanical therapies. The SIM course encompasses our primary pillars at CuraCore® using the Medical Acupuncture and Integrative Neuromodulation® (MAIN® ) approach.

This two-day workshop will encourage you to expand your integrative medical offerings and update your science-based acupuncture knowledge through a hands-on, experiential workshop that includes instruction and practice in medical acupuncture, myofascial release, laser therapy and LED arrays (photomedicine), and botanical medicine.
