Frequently asked questions

A nurse can practise acupuncture following the successful completion of a Breeze Academy acupuncture course. The term Acupuncturist, however, is a protected title for those that have completed a relevant degree.

A nurse that wishes to practise acupuncture in the UK should complete the Breeze Academy Foundation course to start using acupuncture as part of their usual care.

Our foundation acupuncture courses are studied online and in-person at a workshop. It typically takes around a month to complete both. Online components are studied in your own time, at your own pace, so can be completed as quickly or slowly as you wish.

Nurses that practise acupuncture are able to offer drug-free pain relief, as well as support for patients that suffer with more systemic issues such as hot flushes.

Our Foundation acupuncture course is designed with nurses in mind, to ensure that they leave our training feeling safe, confident and effective.
