2022 is not only the year of the Tiger… it’s also the year of ACATCM’s 25th anniversary!

It has been ACATCM’s mission since 1997 to provide our community with the highest degree of excellence in education and services within the fields of acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Please join us in celebrating our accomplishments over the years!

Happy Chinese New Year! 2022 is an exciting year for Alberta College of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine as we are celebrating our 25th anniversary.

Chinese New Year is one of the big celebrations in China, however, many parts of East Asian countries also celebrate this big day and is often known as Lunar New Year. Traditionally, it is a 15-day celebration festival that lasts until the following new full moon with lots of loud noises, bright lights, fireworks, red clothes, and decorations to scare away the monsters for a better year. It is also the time of the year that families gather up to honor their ancestors with all kinds of food.

We are delighted to celebrate 25th Chinese New Year with all of you. May you stay strong, safe, and healthy, and may you have a great year and a wonderful time ahead!

Fall's Gifts and Nature's Lessons | TCM World

"As mid-September draws near, Earth makes its transition to Fall. The weather is cool, the air is crisp, and colorful leaves cover the ground. Every Fall, Nature gives us a big show of color, followed by a period of dryness and then release, as the trees let go of their leaves."

The Art of Honourable Disagreements

Falling in Love with Mother Earth 07/29/2020

Falling in Love with Mother Earth

"Many of us think we need more money, more power or more status before we can be happy. We’re so busy spending our lives chasing after money, power and status that we ignore all the conditions for happiness already available. At the same time, we lose ourselves in buying and consuming things we don’t need, putting a heavy strain on both our bodies and the planet. Yet much of what we drink, eat, watch, read or listen to, is toxic and is polluting our bodies and minds with violence, anger, fear and despair."

Looking for Love? The Answer is in Self-Trust | TCM World 07/29/2020

Looking for Love? The Answer is in Self-Trust | TCM World

"If you want to truly love yourself, start by appreciating how loyal your body is to you. No matter how much abuse you put your body through—staying up too late, drinking alcohol, eating even though you’re not hungry—the body complies. The body then loyally heals itself as best it can. Appreciating the body is the first step to truly loving yourself."

https://www.tcmworld.org/looking-for-love-the-answer-is-in-self-trust/

The Incredible Power of Chinese Medicine | TCM World 07/29/2020

The Incredible Power of Chinese Medicine | TCM World

"Chinese medicine is an ancient medical system based on thousands of years of observation of Nature, the body and Qi. Practitioners study Qi, or vital energy, and its path through and around the body. From a TCM perspective, everything in and around your body is connected. You are tied to the seasons of Nature, and your body responds in turn."

https://www.tcmworld.org/why-use-chinese-medicine/

Resting Gently in the Unknown 07/29/2020

Resting Gently in the Unknown

"My body exhales and tension, I didn’t know was there, dissolves just a little. So, I keep going — It’s okay not to know, and it’s okay to be scared. It’s okay to wish things were easier and better and more peaceful. It’s okay to feel. It’s okay. It’s all okay. "
