"When speaking with other acupuncturists, or when I attend acupuncture workshops to learn more, I can even hear across the globe that they are training in schools that are not as rigorous as AIM. I didn’t know when I started in 1994 that I would - half my life later and in all my years to come - remain in the field I do. There is so much to learn about the body that whether one plans to work as a therapist for the rest of one’s life or not, this wisdom brings an incredible amount of value to life, healing for oneself and others, and a great depth of insight. Out of all my travels, this school is the one that I would recommend without hesitation."

"I started my program as a second year student, as I studied previously before studying at AIM Academy. I found the school offered a warm and welcoming ambiance with an awesome transitional schedule with the courses I needed to take. The quality of each course was great, and the teachers were great in the material they were teaching. The school is very understanding with your own schedule, life circumstances and challenges. Their schedule accommodated my long commute to class everyday. AIM Academy’s location is great. It’s in Chinatown, which is very convenient especially if you study herbs as there are many Chinese herb stores in that area."

"My introduction to the Shiatsu and Acupuncture School came in the form of a 40 hour Beginner Shiatsu course for Registered Massage Therapists. I was hooked. Since then I have completed several Acupuncture and Shiatsu courses there. I tried other schools including the McMaster Acupuncture program but always ended up back there. With top notch teachers and an incredible learning environment, this school is a real gem in the heart of Toronto. The administrators are incredibly helpful and I've always engaged positively with my fellow students. I highly recommend this school as one of the most authentic and comprehensive Acupuncture training courses in Toronto."
