Master Your Trade

Finally there is an accredited acupuncture doctorate degree that specializes and focuses on the 21st-century neuroscience of acupuncture, is loaded with direct clinical applications, offers hands-on training, and provides human cadaver lab experience.

when it


It was Dr. Corradino’s experience being in the very first accredited DAOM cohort in the United States, back when the program was a 26-month-long program with weekly classes from Thursday to Sunday. The program was substantially integrated with medical doctor clinical supervisors and well balanced in classical translations and western medical sciences.

Unfortunately, the programs have been modified greatly since then, and have many different intentions leading to loads of dissatisfied practitioners. The DAOM programs that are offered now just aren’t clinically based and from many practitioners’ feedback haven’t done anything for their acupuncture practice except giving them more student debt, and the ability to refer to themselves as a “Doctor”.

How it has


The Neuropuncture Doctorate Neuroscience Acupuncture program offers the practitioner an opportunity to truly begin to “Master” their professional trade of acupuncture and the ability to refer to themselves as “Doctor”.

The Neuropuncture DNA journey is an enrichment of knowledge both in a deeper understanding of classical acupuncture integrated with neuroscience and functional neurology, and much focus and emphasis on clinical applications of neuromodulation with electrical acupuncture.
