The University of South Los Angeles School of Oriental Medicine trains master and doctoral students, conducts research, and treats patients at clinics on campus. Our academic programs are among the most comprehensive in the country, providing students with a solid foundation in acupuncture.
Acupuncture is among the oldest healing practices in the world. As part of traditional Oriental medicine, it is based on the concept that disease results from disruption in the flow of qi and imbalance in the forces of yin and yang. Practices such as herbs, meditation, massage, and acupuncture seek to aid healing by restoring the yin-yang balance and the flow of qi. This practice has evolved over thousand of years. Our practitioners use herbs, acupuncture, and a family of procedures rooted in traditional Oriental medicine.
