Study acupuncture at SSOMA

The School of Scientific Oriental Medicine and Acupuncture (SSOMA) is dedicated to elevating the practice and teaching of acupuncture to the highest level. The school is the work of Dr Daniel Keown who realised that current teaching of acupuncture was inadequate.

Drawing on his unparalleled expertise in understanding acupuncture theory and his over 20 years in clinical medicine and 10 years as an acupuncturist, Dr Keown explains the concepts behind acupuncture with 15 easy to follow videos which can be watched at home. Further study can take place in the clinic where channel palpation and clinical cases are discussed.
