‘As a new graduate of the TCM practitioner program from AIM Academy and also a medical doctor from China, I find the school and the program are really helpful, especially the course of Materia Media. The instructor Adina is amazing. She is not only knowledgeable, but also has lots of clinical experience. She made the boring course interesting, also easy to understand and remember. I learned a lot from her. I really appreciate the school has her as an instructor. We can see that the Director Enza made a great effort to have good teachers in the school. Highly recommend this school!'

'I attended the Chinese Herbal programme at AIM Academy in 2018-2019.   
We worked along with qualified supervisors who helped us assess the clients' complaints and come up with our own herbal treatment plan using traditional Chinese medical principles. All the supervisors in our training clinic have a practice of their own and so each of them brought a world of wonderful expertise to the experience.
I particularly enjoyed the interactive nature of the class and the interactive form of teaching. I found the dialogue very inspiring and gripping especially since we were learning a new way of seeing, perceiving the world.
My own training includes being a qualified naturopath, a shiatsu therapist and a former pharmacist and I found this training to be very complementary. The experience was so rich and rewarding that I am going back for another course.'

'I recently graduated from AIM Academy's TCMP program and I could not be happier with the quality of education I received.

The practitioners they had teaching and supervising clinic are well educated in all aspects of TCM Acupuncture and herbal medicine.

The school maintains a positive and supportive environment for all their staff, students and patients.
The administrative staff works very hard to ensure the school runs efficiently and the student clinics are filled with patients for optimal hands on experience!

The school helps prepare the students as best they can for CTCMPAO registration exams, which has been VERY beneficial for me.

AIM Academy was the right choice of school to attend, I highly recommend it for anyone wishing to learn TCM acupuncture or Chinese herbal medicine.'

Adina Stanescu  is AMAZING!!!!!  She’s very knowledgeable, passionate about Chinese herbs and always ready to share her clinical experience with students.
Materia Medica with Adina was a great fundamental experience. Highly recommended!'
